Those brogues look amazing. I'm so jealous.

Lear

I'd ask him.

He won't give out his phone number (claims its takes away from him making shoes) And he uses standard sized lasts which are similar to those used by Edward Green and Gaziano & Girling. He doesn't seem to have fitting shoes, so I would be surprised to see him meet a client in person to get measured ....unless if it was to be paid in cash

I'd like to get some sort of catalog of shoes he's made to make a choice. Maybe just have him copy an EG shoe I like?

Yes of course, thought I'd see if anyone here knew first. Thanks for starting this thread AnGeLiCbOrIs.

OK, thanks for that information Michael Ay329.

This guy's work speaks for itself, what a great craftsman. At this price he makes absolutely irresistible shoes

Once members post enough pics of their shoes we should ask to pin this.

Certainly, we can have an official shoemaker for the site. The only lingering concern, of course, is quality of materials. If the leather turns out to be of high quality, then this is quite a bargain. Can't wait to hear what they are like in person.

they actually don't look bad... anyone know retail?

I think the second pair look even better than the first. The sole treatment looks more refined and the last looks a little less bulbous. This is the coolest thread I've seen in a while.

Looks more like vintage EG's. I don't remember a Grenson nail pattern like that.

Very nice shoes and great sole treatment!

One of the coolest threads I've stumbled upon. If I could see a catalog of possible lasts I'm sure I would place a number of orders in the coming years.

Only similar to the 202 currently. The last similar to the 888 is arriving after Easter.

AnGeLiCbOrIs, you really did come across something quite special. How did you come across Cliff?
