When I see photos of bespoke shoes from Gaziano & Girling on the web, they tend to be aggressively styled. Tony Gaziano is the first to admit that he likes to push the envelope, and I'm not the only one that thinks he has a knack for it. But he can be conservative when he's asked to, and here's some espresso brown quarter brogue proof (I call them quarter brogues because they don't have a toe medallion, but they do have a heel counter so technically I think they are hybrid form of semi-brogue. Not that it matters.).
G & G bespoke shoes arrive in a sturdy shoe box with heavy cloth bags and elegant mahogany trees that put the shoe trees from Tony's two previous employers to shame. Even the soles are discreet. I asked for a fiddleback sole and I got one, but it's modest. And the plum lining on the inside blends right in.
Since I've decided that I prefer brown or tan shoes with my blue suits for day wear, I'm only wearing black shoes with gray suits that have black in the weave. That has meant that I needed (OK, wanted) a couple more pair of darker brown city shoes in my rotation. These fit the bill.
