i've used modern tailor for a shirt and it was a great result. Thick as thieves has been fantastic for suits/pants for me also.
Hussy edit: Hadden too
i had my pocket watch rebuilt at the antiqurium (spelled somthing like that), oppisite adriano carbone in the block arcade. its solid silver, 1880's but not worth all that much.
^^^ they look wonderful very nice stuff, pointier chistle toe sounds like a good idea, that would have need the improvment i would have sugested. i am going to have a new last made over christmas. my original was round (classic english think 202) so i'm after a little more pointier chistle toe next too.
They do, do up all the way (so there no 'V') Infact I have them on now, no V, just two straight lines. I'm very happy with the fit. I also have a low? Instep, I have shallow feet, that was one thing that was to be fixed with the last from Bruce because my previous boots needed a few insoles to bring my foot flush with the upper. I hadn’t done them up properly for the photo because i had just got them and was more concerned with getting them on my feet (I’d been waiting 5...

Chukka boot i think, or maybe a black oxford shoe god forbid :P, may be a while before my next order tho, i'm purchaceing a money pit over the summer in the form of an E30, 3 series... i had the shoes on again today, i know in the pics the toe looks blobby, but on my feet let me assure you ther are sleek as. makes me think that those lasts that look sleek in pics are rediculiously pointed in reality.

$250 i believe spring lines are about 220 pounds so there very good value in that respect. 14 Pelmet Crs, Thomastown VIC 3074
no i'm sorry the last is with cliff, i'm sure my pictures dont do them justice, i thought so from the pics i got too, but on my feet they arnt blobby at all, the toe shape is great. mind you, i could allways ask for bruce to make me a new last with the macquary toe to make them more 'JL8000ish/F last-ish'. if i wanted, to be honest , i dont think i will, i'm very happy with them, that way they wont stand out to much, i didnt want a fashon shoe anyway.
