My understanding is that the sale shoes are from this year's production for their stock line and should be relatively recent generation in design...at least that is my hope as I will be taking delivery on the Rothschild sometime this week.

All I can ascertain from this site is the EG Shannons, which are most assuredly MTO (not enough time). Does anyone have any other recommendations on such short notice? You might be able to track down a pair of Lobb Brooklands. I believe they have...

Now that they own Southwick, it is all the easier.
Talk about being teased. The original post by Iyorito said he had intended a buy it now for 200.00 pnds, but couldn't get it set up right. Said he hoped to do so. Meanwhile the pair I want is already well over that price. Grrrr. I would have been all over the buy it now.
I have a number of wholecut or wholecut-like smooth vamp shoes. My experience: Borgioli: (two wholecuts) virtually no creasing. Martegani: one pair creased; the other (radica calf ) did not.

On those models, creasing seems to stand out much less or is less noticeable.
So what did you do to ruin his tie that you needing to exactly replace it? You borrowed it and wrecked it? You plan to commit a crime with the tie and want to frame the guy in the photo? Details please!

How so Cheaney....all the Cheaney pictured in the Plal link have open channel stitching...the OP has closed channel. I vote EG or Grenson.

I have been trying to locate some and no one seems to know what I am talking about. Kent Wang has an assortment of antique...
