OK, I'll bite. WiIl they be available in calf or only suede?   They are nice looking shoes.     Beau
 I generally don't go for the burnished/antique look on shoes but seeing the side laces at the trunk show made a believer out of me.  The one show they had was beautiful, and it was my size so I tried it on, and let's just say it's lucky they didn't bring 2 of them!!   Justin is correct that pictures just can't capture the look of the shoes.  I am going to have to pay more attention in the future to shoes with this work.  Make an attractive option, and possibly even gives...
Just wanted everyone to know what a great experience I had visiting with the traveling Fosters in NYC.  If you get a chance go and visit them on their cross country road trip.  Luckily enough, I am the same size as Andrew and the single side lace prototype they brought.  He was gracious enough to let me try on his Chelsea boots and side laces, which unfortunately for my wallet fit perfectly.  I can see a future with me purchasing a pair of boots and possibly even the new...
Can I trade in my side laces for a new pair!!  These are beautiful shoes.  Will definitely give me a reason to visit the Trunk Show in NYC.  Guess I better make an appointment.

Will they be bringing any of the RTW collection or is this strictly a bespoke order trip?
Easiest way would be to use Synth's "black bar" to hide identities, which would be hilarious on it's own.  Otherwise you would need to get model releases from anyone depicted or cut them in on the action.  Who knows where it could lead; putting the images on ties would be hilariously bad but good.  Bets could be taken on how long it would take for one of the subjects to show up wearing "his" tie!
Visited the Maftei trunk show yesterday, despite the weather in NYC.  Roxana couldn't have been nicer to someone who came in not wanting shoes right now.  There were a lot more shoes there than I expected.  They had just started making wholecuts and she had a few of them prominently displayed.  From an admitted novice point of view the construction of the shoes seems first rate.  I can't tell you if there is any structural, or wearing issue with pegged construction but...
Don't have too many words for these.  Did anyone else see these?  Hopefully the story will come out because I would be fascinated to know the back story.     http://saintcrispinsblessing.tumblr.com/post/71850183083/john-lobb-paris-bespoke-18k-gold-sole
