Your post has some merit.
As atonement, I present an alternative suggestion while you wait for one to pop up here. The Ilkley seems a bit scarce as you have noted, but the Grenson Sharp looks....well.....pretty sharp. And only 145 pounds! I am considering this one myself.
As a bonus, Pediwear is now giving out a free silk tie (20 pound value) and free Grenson shoe trees (50 pound value!) with any shoe purchase over 100 pounds!
