My favorite is the Classic last, but that's because I don't enjoy chiseled last of any brands at all. You should be able to get your initials nailed on the shoe, or maybe your chinese last name (Ethan had it done before). I thought shoe trees should be included at the $1,600 price? Anyway, I would opt for the hollow shoe tree. They are a work of art,extremely light and strong which makes it a good travel tree, and well worth the $100 extra. They do have different lasts as...
I believe the Russian reindeer that Saint Crispin uses is actually a new kind (not the one from the sunken ship) and I believe the price point is the same ~1,600 USD or so. You should check with Thomas Park and report back though.
I think the first option looks good, although I'm not really feeling the curvy line running along the side of the shoe. 3rd option is good too, ever considered Russian reindeer skin? Personally I would go with a double monk without a captoe. I think a stretched (almost wholecut) like leather is easier to shine because of the shallower pores, and also the crease that you would eventually get from Saint Crispin's shoe should form a 'captoe' like effect anyway. I own a pair...
Nothing ever fits me
Deets on Kiton pents?
They do have a prominent Saint Crispin type crease, not that I mind that at all. I have the exact same model in Austerity brogue in a different color. His probably has not really been worn much yet when this picture was taken.
I can't comment on the fitting of Church's or John Lobb's because I own neither, but I've read somewhere that different people have different expectation of what is a good fit for shoes. I believe George Glasgow Jr of Cleverley mentioned something about some client are clearly a size 9, yet they want a size 7 shoe and is perfectly happy with that; some on the other hand like their feet to swim in the shoes. I personally prefer my shoes to be fit such that my toes don't...
They are meant to be tight. My new pair that just came actually fits very tight compared to my other pair that I bought used on eBay. You will notice that each pair of shoe tree is actually made specifically to each order, you will see the order # under the hollow part of the instep. I believe StC is currently running around 10,000-11,000 order numbers. My pair that was order in October 2012 was order # 10678, and my older pair is #8,xxx.If you find the shoe trees hard to...
I wanna say.. Saint Crispin? Has that Classic Last look to it.
True, I see that you posted a picture of the Austerity brogue in burgundy. I have that pair on the Classic last, if you need more photo to make a decision send me a PM Adding on to that, StC's russian reindeer double monk is a beauty that you might consider too.
