msg # 887 , Sep 20,2020 Hello, I am trying to find a pair of new oxfords in gg06 since ONE year and scrolling the forum since.
Not tempted at all to order them at full price, even with 20% off nowadays. (4 kids , shyt economy, etc)
Did you get yours at a good price ? (all is relative) and did you find them in the Buy/Sell section ?
I am looking for 7.5 or 8 and no sign of any since long.
there is a US shop selling a few but only huge sizes left
is there a trick to get those for a descent price, or everybody paid full ?
Hello, my birthday is soon and I think my luck couldn't shine better.
As I was into finding a pair of gg oxfords for a couple of years, and gave up searching.......
It became a habit to click on styleforum every morning, and follow this thread, in the hope of finding a new pair for sale here at a reasonable price !
As well, clicked on ebay.com and changed my address to a US post code for a better search for gg oxfords.
ebay.co.uk and changed post code, ebay germany, france etc.
.....and I think it is the ebay AI search bot, that found me a very peculiar Ad !
I still don't believe it was luck
Whilst searching for gaziano gg06 oxford, ebay always suggests for you , a few similar items on the bottom of the search results , and there is one item that caught my eye.
The sale was for a pair of Alfred Sargent oxfords , brand new, in my size 8E, but I was eyeballing the tiny picture !!!
Well I clicked on the ebay item, and the whole description was for an Alfred Sargent, and checking the details, the seller seemed PRO and selling dozens of Alfred Sargent shoes, with a street shop in Burton, and good reputation etc etc.
The pictures talked to me and the shape of the shoe was yellling Gaziano.
After a few close-ups and stitch comparisions, I was 100% sure it was Gaziano & Girling Oxfords.
I purchased the pair, and received them yesterday
The box was Alfred Sargent very well, but the shoes are GG's all the way.
I was surprised there is no GG stamp on the inner sole leather, no name, no sign. Probable seconds, thirds, or what have you, but found a lovely tiny GG06 inscription inside the tongue. Moreover, the sole lacks the black V bridge signature, but found several MTO GG's with same sole as in pictures.
wanted to share my stupid story, as a soon to be grandfather, the gg oxfords are great great shoes, their signature is unique, and I truly am not a fashion victim, nor a show off or brag bag, but I find this model so refined.
I am not UK based btw
