Greetings and welcome to the world of shoe obsession.
I don't see that. The St James II just depicted is on the soft-square MH71 last. I think the TG73 square toe looks like it always has.I rather like the MH71 and that might be my next G&G purchase. My G&G are on the TG73 and DG70.
If it is AS's doing, I really question the wisdom, but let's wait and see. If AS starts popping up with a good selection for the consumer then it will be a good thing.
Though you have to admit, Fiddler, that you vented pretty harshly before you gave Leffot any chance to respond, and when they did respond, they did just about everything one could reasonably expect to make the situation right.However, as my earlier posts indicate, that does not make me a blind fan of Leffot. I have purchased from them in the past (two pairs of Corthay) and thought the service was fine. I like the fact that they have given us access to a wider range of...
Illustrates the anxiety of "waiting for the other shoe to drop."
I have posted at great length on the AS MTO thread.I am annoyed enough that I am inclined to simply not give AS my business in any shape or form. Would love to know the details as to how this export ban developed. If Leffot pushed it as a condition for stocking their limited run of exclusive styles, shame on them and a very stupid move by AS because I think they would do better in the US market developing the AFPoS connection. It will be interesting to see how the shoes...
I have made no claim to know for a fact that AS policy was in deference to Leffot. Others opined that AS was acting to protect US vendors and to my knowledge Leffot is the main purveyor of AS exclusive.I have shopped at Leffot and have been pleased with their service and their products. I defended them up and down months ago in the long debate over EG monks and a guy trying to do an end run around Leffot to buy the same shoe from EG. I do wish they would maintain a...
Yes and it was made on an handgrade last. I think when you were there the exclusive line had not yet really come out. The Moore is now an exclusive stock style, made on the 724 last to exclusive standards (which is BELOW the MTO Handgrade line) I remember being quite excited when i saw the Moore drop significantly in price. It was when I looked more closely that I saw they had launched a line below handgrade. When you say Leffot is now stocking "true exclusives" I have...
I could be wrong, but I think you are confused as to the AS Exclusive/Handgrade designation.Handgrade is the top line. More refined waist treatment, different styles and different lasts than the Exclusive. I think Leffot is carrying the Exclusive line, Exclusive styles, made on Exclusive lasts, to Exclusive standards.What we did at AFPoS was to take a Handgrade style (the Miller boot) and have it made on an exclusive last (724 I think) to exclusive standards, with the...
