Just wondering if anyone has asked Vass to trim the soles closer to the edge? I'm not sure that I like the way the sole sticks out the sides of the shoe. It seems to take away from the sleekness of the U-last. Is this the sort of request one can make?
Am considering taking advantage of the weakening GBP and stepping up to play with the big boys. Does anyone have any shots from the top or side profile shots, or shots from front-on, of the G&G Grant?
I've noticed in pictures that the C&J Antique Nubuck, featured in brown on the Tetbury boot, tends to crease rather significantly. I have confirmed with yfyf that these shoes crease more than any other shoe he has on the 348 last. Is it possible the "Antique Nubuck" is a code-word for corrected grain leather?

Do they also make belts?

The BG Edgware has become available however and should be popular. Hallam in Espresso Calf Suede may be popular also. ______________________________________________________________________ Last 358 Handgrade Selborne Black Calf Handgrade Selbourne Chestnut Antique Calf Last 348 Edgware...
I will be in HK during Christmas and NY, do you know if they will be closing for holidays during this time?

Handgrades really are a fine shoe and the 337 and 351 really suit my foot. As for quality on the regualr line, well there is a noticable decrease in the little finishing touches as well as a lack of oak bark soles.
