Wednesday - Q&A round-up

Q: Hi I’m contemplating whether to purchase a pair of Adelaide and I’m toying with either C&J westbourne or AS Moore.. As I know you have both, which one would you choose first and why? A: Well, what you have there is probably the two best alternatives for an adelaide oxford in terms of price range going from 350-500 euros. As you mentioned, I've had both but unfortunately that westbourne pair was too small for me so I had to sell it forward.

Christmas day Q&A

It’s again been a while since I last posted any Q&A so I tried to gather some of the questions I’ve got during the last few weeks. There will be some individual questions regarding the upcoming sales and outerwear pieces answered separately during the next couple of days. Q: Found your website when I was looking for retailers who carry The Gigi. Can you help? p.s. love your website A: There’s not that many retailers I would be aware of but here’s a few.
