A Patina by Gaziano & Girling

While this might come off as just down right teasing to some, many of you might be pleased to know that Gaziano & Girling will be offering a full patina service to their RTW/MTO collections, come this Autum/Winter 2014 and here is a sneak peak of the capabilities offered. It’s quite impressive to witness the changes that they have made to their company in the last year, from a new and bigger factory, to their […]

Gaziano & Girling’s New Shoe Factory

I just recently had the time and the pleasure of getting myself up to the infamous town of Kettering to finally see the new Gaziano & Girling factory. I have been meaning to do this for awhile now, but with the little man to take care of on weekends, I don’t often find the time to get away. But I managed to knock out a few birds with one stone and blame the business for […]

The Age of Photo Sharing

  With Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and all of the rest of the social media outlets that one can view pictures on, a world in which ideas can be shared from one side of the globe to the other within a matter of a split second has been created. And there is nothing cooler. Getting pictures for the site used to take some actual research. Now I am bombarded by them and it’s hard to filter […]

Slick Suits with Deco Boots

Don’t have a lot of time today to ramble on, but thought that you all would appreciate seeing my new Gaziano & Girling Deco ‘Fairbank’ Beatle boot! While you normally get the Deco shoes with a bleached toe (done by reverse patina), I decided to give it my own touch of snobbery by adding some red polish to the toe and heels and setting it apart from the rest. A bit rock & roll if […]

Bespoke G&G for Steven Taffel – Legendary

For those that don’t know, Steven Taffel is the owner of NYC shoe store Leffot. And these bad boys are his new bespoke numbers by Gaziano & Girling. When I first saw these, I must say that I was blown away not only by the shear beauty of them as a whole but also for the execution in the design and details. There is not one thing about them that is out of place or […]

Today’s Favorites – Gaziano & Girling Saddle Loafers

There is nothing quite like a nice loafer. They are so versatile and pleasing simply for the fact that you don’t have to bend over to tie them. I mean, what more could you really ask for? It’s laziness at its finest! If you must though, then allow me to elaborate….They go great with jeans, amazing with chinos, workable with suits, and pretty much every other trouser that you can think of….And I really never […]

Gaziano & Girling Deco Range

While this is not really ‘first to bring you news,’ I figured that since you can’t find the entire Deco range in colored pictures, I would put that up for all of you that might have yet to see them. And for those that might not be familiar, the Deco range is a new array of shoes produced by Gaziano & Girling that are meant to offer that happy medium between RTW and bespoke. You […]
