    I had the exact same thing, until I read that suede is sometimes even tougher than leather.
    So i gave it a try and now its just elbow grease and a sunday afternoon spending some TLC on your suedes.
    Especially when taken care of with proper products they always come out really clean and nice.

    I think the problem is with nice shoes that they are always too expensive.
    In case of a pair of G&G's we're talking half an average US monthly wage.

    As for suede quality I think our own stitch and/or justin are the ones to answer that one, although they'll probably tell you to buy G&G ;)

    Had to show off the Saint Crispins
    Jhane Barnes socks
    Tried to wear my pale green slacks but I need to lose another 5 pounds
    So jeans are much more forgiving. They are a nice color.

    I don't think average people buy G&G anyway.

    I own 2 pair of G&G's, unfortunately one pair is way big and the other pair is a touch small. One of these days I'll get it right.

    Cool combo! How does the tie knot?

    True, but was just talking perpective here. I dont think anyone on this thread is average in any way ;)

    Shame to hear, which models, lasts and sizes do you own? Awesome shoes BTW!

    No I found them on ebay. A store in Jersey went out of business and was selling off their inventory. Unfortunately I discoverd them a little late and all the larger sizes were gone. This pair is size 9.5, I took a chance and they fit like a glove, a little snug. Hopefully they'll stretch out a bit.

    Thanks. They are really nice shoes, got lucky on those. I have the G&G Wigmore boot size 11F. Thought I could make them work but they're way too big for me. I have them up for sale. The other pair is a MTO chukka boot, don't remeber the size. The toe is pointy and they fit very snug. I'll give them another try but they may end up for sale also. I'll post some photos later.

    PS, those are gonna look amazing, what shoes will you pair them with?
    Stitch, I regret not buying those G&G, looking good.

    You guys continue to inspire me with the great combinations.
