Henry Poole do "Bespoke Cashmere" but their description sounds like MTM. I doubt it's cheap, though.
Mislabelled RMWs going cheap:
Ede & Ravenscroft shoes 8.5UK These are made by Grenson, and retail at 250UKP. The buy-it-now is a bargain.
Sorry to hi-jack: I have a pair of Gieves and Hawkes black calf full brogues I'd like to sell: How much should I ask? They're more used than yours, and only retailed for 190UKP. BTW does anyone know who makes for G&H?

I know a number of you use Herring shoes. They have a new website and new premier lines of their own brand. They also, pleasantly, admit who makes their own-brand shoes (Loake for normal, Sargent and Cheaney for Premier). Also, this is sweet: Monk
Unworn M&S Wool/Silk biege/brown summer-weight small-pattern jacket. 10GBP (Retail 179GBP) I've only been wearing "proper" (post-sf) clothes for about 6 months, so all my stuff is Autumn/Winter. Now looking to pick up some summer stuff.

I'm coming to the conclusion that Sanders are much better value in the "I must have calf and I must have it cheaply" stakes. I have some 75 quid full-price black calf captoes from them which have good hard soles, combination heels and very close...

Three days wear a week (spaced out), six months for these. Holes in the middle of soles (stitching saved by toe-plates). Presumably Loake use cheap leather, or I'm very hard on them...
