I think there's a good reason we don't see that makeup more often.
I think that @bool2gom is interested in a pair of Van-lasted LHS that are in a size 8.0D.

If you do use 1701 at some point, I'd be interested in your experience as well.I went into their shop in Birmingham on a whim one day (I was dropping something off at "Ali the Tailor" who is just a couple doors down) and they had a pretty good selection of fabric books to pick through. I wasn't really interested in buying anything that day so wasn't listening too hard at the prices but I seem to recall that their prices jump pretty quickly as you move up from the basic...
I have not received anything from my order yet. I'm waiting on three sportcoats and a suit.
