    I don't know if I'd spend that kind of cash on suede. Is there much noticeable difference in the quality of suede used in upper tier shoe brands like G&G or Edward Green compared to that used in a mid tier brand like Crockett & Jones?

    very nice shoes, but not much less than Nick's price minus VAT, and isn't there some scuffing on the right front toe?

    How much do the RL G&Gs usually go for? They look nice, and seem like an ok-to-good deal, but do you like them enough that this is a great deal?

    Doesn't seem like a great deal - but, if you really want them, who knows?

    ^ Fred we are going to need some bigger pictures, buddy. :)


    I think I would need to see them in person first. I do like them though.
