I now live in India as well- I believe there is a stronger* tradition of shoe making in Calcutta (the Chinese community)? Did you try to find someone there? I'm looking as well, hence the question.* Comparatively speaking, that is.
I know you said you're not interested in Red Wing. However, since you are giving it a try I would suggest the moc toe Oxfords, although they are not dressy. Very tough leather, softer crepe soles, great to walk long distances (but you will need to break them in) . In the US you can get the models 8105, 8106 and 8109. I've recently bought all three and love them as part of my rotation. The Red wing stores I have visited tend not to carry the moc toe oxford, so you will...
In before Malford chimes in again to say they'd have to pay him to take those boots.
Not sure if this has come up before, but these look teh sechs. Would kop if in my size. http://www.ebay.com/itm/LEE-KEE-SHELL-CORDOVAN-BOOTS-BURGUNDY-10-5-COMANDO-CUSTOM-MADE-COLOR-8-SHOES-/180985007545?pt=US_Men_s_Shoes&hash=item2a238c0db9

Thanks. I looked around yesterday at 3 locations but found only one trouser I liked.
Lots of comments on SCs and dress shirts which were very helpful. Anyone has a suggestion on dress pants brands they would recommend? I'm in NY only for a day so any help would be very very appreciated. Thanks!
This is a nice, tough, casual shoe and I really like it. However, OP, while you are right when you say it fits large, IMHO it fits even larger than half a size. I am a US 8.5E (wide) in many US shoes, and a US 8 redwing moc oxford was too large for me, I could insert two fingers between my heel and and the back edge of the shoe. I'm now wearing a US 7.5 Redwing 8019 Oxford, and even that fits just about, and could be a hair loose. In other words, I have had to size...
