Received this e-mail Thursday:Opening our doors on Jermyn StreetAfter a fortnight beavering away behind hoardings, we’re more than excited to be taking them down and opening the doors of our Jermyn Street store once more.Our new space is designed to be a fitting home to our shoes and you, our customers, who appreciate something a little bit special. We dare say Beau Brummell will enjoy an approving glance from across the street.Come and join us for a coffee or a dram and...
I believe most 'modern' lasts are 'combination' lasts, even if not marked as such by the makers, i.e. a 9B/D AE shoe will simply be marked 9D. That said, some lasts are known to have a roomier than average fit in the heel than others, i.e. Alden Barrie.

Imo, these are the nicest Khaki chrono dials: flat dial with recessed sub-dials. Much nicer than the newer ones where the dial is sorta raised (stepped?) in the middle and glossy. To nitpick: lumed numerals would've been nice, as well as a screw-down crown. Still, a great value for a 7750 chrono...
