Scored, before lunch: 1. Glass of Cava from TM Lewin. Tasty-ish. 2. Saucer of Champagne from Church's - tasty. Are saucers the corrected grain of Champagne glasses? 3. Glass of Champagne from another shirtmaker, but I wasn't concentrating. 4. Smoked salmon from the Ritz stall - tasty. Seriously, though, it was mostly a fun event. "Being British" was a bit of a dumb theme, and there was some twattish faux-snobbery from a minority of stallholders - not exactly in the...
Here's a couple more - sorry for the quality.
Cheaney Chukkas. First resole. Can't decide whether to keep using suede cleaner on these to keep them pristine, or let them really go... (JR heel units are awesome, by the way. I no longer need to change heels in between resolings - and I'm very hard on heels).

Ede & Ravenscroft's are about that price and very nice. I don't have a clue where they source them, but they're nicer than dent's.
A lot of them have visitor centres. Scotland's a big place with slow roads and slow trains, so I'd wait until to get to a city and look for leaflets in the Tourist Information place...

Ede & Ravenscroft used to be 95 GBP per shirt.
Sell the iMac, hook the laptop up to a decent screen, keyboard and mouse, and you're good to go. Maintaining multiple computers is a hassle.
I resole them just as a hole starts to appear in the middle of the sole. By this point, about half of the stitches will be entirely worn through and broken (patch on left, patch on right, toe). Seems to work fine. Resoling after 25 wearings is nuts.
