This is true- at least in the past. I'm not sure they run any stock models of the HG - at least for US shops. Leffot used to carry them, but stopped. When I had stopped in to see the range they said they could do a single shoe in any color, leather combination, and/or last based upon their HG models.
Another 3 Hobers on order: Macclesfield #109 Navy Diamond Weave #4 Slate Blue Prometeo Grenadine #8 This will make 15 Hobers. The official SF tie is out of stock for my second consecutive order.
For my chestnut Westbournes which are from the benchgrade collection I use Saphir cognac, both cream and wax. Sometimes I throw some Mahogany on the toe cap (1/4 of the time), but only the wax not the cream. For my Hangrade Somervilles, which are also called chestnut (but are a completely different color - much more red), I use Saphir mahogany cream and wax.
Wore mine today too. Two pairs of mto Blakes in dc at the same time. Wore my swims out to lunch.They are great shoes and look great. I'd really like a mto in oxblood. Different style. Not sure what. But an oxford. Maybe afpos will do one of their special models in oxblood.
And Selmy is just a prop on the show. No Rheager stories or anything.
It was pure garbage fan fiction. The kind of stuff nobody reads on the inter webs. And, now it's on the screen. Vomit.
On the subjective piece I find the C&J lasts a little better fit for my feet - 348 and 363. In AS I haven't tried the 724, however I have the 48 in an Ex makeup of a HG style, 99, and 87.On the objective, I agree that the leather quality in the AS Ex is equal to C&J handgrade. On my special make up of the AS HG style, the burnishing is nicer than on C&J HG. My AS Ex also have nicer soles- semi-fiddleback than on the C&J HG. I also like the slightly higher heel stack on...
Please call him Sandor. He has a name. Just as he's not a knight, he's not an animal. That's his brother.
I have both C&J handgrade and benchgrade. The Exclusive range of AS is much nicer in terms of finish than the handgrade. I'd say the soles are nicer on the AS Exclusive than even the benchgrade C&J. The leather is pretty comparable. Lasts are really personal fit, so they're hard to compare, but both have a variety available.I've got 3 pairs of AS in heavy rotation, plus two in light rotation - a light colored slip on that I only wear in summer and a patent leather...
