    LARon,

    Nice collection of shoes. [​IMG] Did you have to pay retail for the Grants? I've been waiting around for some kind of a discount

    You'll be waiting for a while yet. I thought I would get them at discount back around Christmas; alas, it was not to be, and I couldn't resist any longer. And we've been very happy together. [​IMG]

    Thanks. It was slightly antiqued when I bought it and has only gotten a bit more
    "weathered" through wear.

    I've found it to be one of my most versatile -- and hence most frequently worn -- shoes. Has that been true for you as well?

    True dat, but w/ a business casual dress code my monks get a good workout, too.

    Nice. Are your monks plain, or do they sport medallions? (an issue that's been recently discussed)

    Ron, that's a very nice collection. So you have 2 pairs of G&G coming up from the last trunk show plus the EG Falmouth and may be 2 more pairs of G&G in the upcoming show? I think the next step is to build up in the balmoral department, the Vass Old English U is in the right direction. As for the Falmouth, medallion or not, I think you should just go with your heart.

    Thanks VR. I think my next G&G order will be for only one pair, the full brogue we discussed a few pages back. At this point I envision doing them in a near-black olive; I just have a problem with paying a lot of money for plain black shoes. They're just not interesting. As for the monks, I think they'll come out spankin'! If not, RLPL currently has a pair of plain EGs that I'd buy on mark down.

    I also had monks on the brain Ron. My next shoe damage thread (coming soon)will feature these 5 JL monk additions:

    Vale (chestnut museum)
    Chapel (2) (dark brown museum, red museum)
    Naseby (dark oak)
    Newland (Havane antique)
