    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Thanks, can't wait to get them!

    I saw that, but honestly I'm not really a fan of that style, the PTB style without any stitching on the sides. Now if they had the shoe I bought in shell, then that would have been a different story. Plus cognac is close to the whisky shell Buday boots I just got.

    Got my Gaziano & Girling Westminister Vintage Rioja today, Gabriel was very accommodating in holding package until I wasn't traveling anymore. Color is incredible, now just need to decide if too close to EG Beaulieu in burgundy antique.

    Color looks better/deeper than EG burgundy.

    Vintage Rioja and Burgundy Antique should not be similar. EG burgundy antique is more redish if it makes sense. If you can please post side by side pics.

    Yeah definitely more reddish and lighter, almost more cherry like. (St. James boxed up so too much effort to take photo right now)

    Great comparison pics, I am an EG backer and find that no one gets it right more often than EG. However the burgundy antique I saw was almost pinkish and I really did not care for it as much as other colors. :embar:

    It does look like BE lists both, so i'm not quite sure. I'll just have to go with what Skoak lets me know...

    The thing I like most about the Inverness is that the brogueing is actually punched into the shoe as opposed to applied, if that makes any sense. It just looks more modern and sleek.

    I don't understand the process of laguna patina on gable? we require G&G to patina or something else?

    Well we would have to ask G&G to do it for us in Laguna patina.

    Dude those are epic. I'd have MTO'd a pair for myself if the burgundy inverness wasn't on sale.


    This is pretty sick too. I think I'd love a wingtip in BRG. Maybe a westminster or maybe a BRG / BRG hatch grain warwick version of this:

    Where's the BRG GMTO?

    I think I am going to place an order for a Nevis and want some opinions on it.

    Last: 202
    Color: Cloud
    Sole: H/AF
    Edgetrim: Black
    Eyelets: Black exposed
    Welt: Flat

    I'm having trouble deciding on the welt and eyelets. I haven't seen a Nevis without blind eyelets and most have reverse welts.

    That's going to be awesome. Reminds me of:

    No welts and all blind eyelets. I think you're fine with dark metal eyelets. Shannons and Galways have them.
