    Those G&G are really sweet. The more I look at the crocs the more I like them.

    Thought so! I've admired them from the first moment I saw them. Very tasteful choices of broguing, last shape, and color. Congratulations on a harmonious combination of design elements.

    I don't know what to call those wine coloured Fosters ...Adelaides? Balmorals?...but they are very nice. The lines, the proportions, the workmanship!

    And the Russia calf are without peer. I particularly like the way the tongue is a little longer on them and the broguing on the tongue syncs with the broguing on the instep.


    Both damn fine looking shoes!

    Interesting - would love to see close ups of those. Never seen a pair of shoes made from shagreen.
