had a successful visit to the factory shop today...  
Snowdon   now officially ready for winter     
picked up these Mocca Suede Chelsea's from the sale today   a couple of the regular Jermyn St staff recognised me and were very kind helping me find stuff in my size (202 7F)   have been thinking about picking up a pair of suede shoes, so figured why not for £295. was hoping to see some Galways there (i can wear the 64 last in a 7E which is a slightly more common size) but no such luck  
thinking about selling my Galways. if anyone is interested pm me. not sure i can be bothered with the whole ebay thing. they're black calf on dainite. 7F. 606 last.   the 7F in the 202 fits me perfectly. but with the 606 i have a bit too much room in the heel   its a real shame. payed over £1000 to have them made.   still. you live and learn.

i really like how the 82 last makes cap toe chelsea shoes look. but with plain toe shoes i think i prefer the 202 last. strange how such a small detail can make such a significant difference
lol. just for the purposes of the experiment. dont panic - i didnt leave the house wearing no socks and odd shoes 😉
   i agree that in my experience the 82 is a slimmer last than the 202. but i also think that the 82 is a longer last than the 202. pics below for reference. they seemed to my eye to be identical in length. but for the sake of precision i also measured them both and found the 202 to be only 1mm longer despite being 1/2 size larger. the 202 is currently the most comfortable shoe to wear. but i know both of these shoes will stretch with time. and i don't yet know which one...
