Alter, those are quite nice!

Well that's my modest "Purchase of the month":


I always liked Venetian loafers, but that particular style hasn't been in production for yonks.
When I saw them as new/old stock on eBay, I pounced:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...1045%26fvi%3D1

Just got them yesterday, they are nice and fit well.

One fella here, quite pleased with himself.

Your new additions are all exquisite, the C&J's are breathtaking.
Cheers, buddy. I know you're still looking for the Tavistock and so am I, but the Ormond (on 330 last) is a reasonable substitute for the time being. I was lucky to get the dark brown Cleveland. It actually shows that my first 'Cleveland' was in fact a sample shoe as it is not exactly the same style as the other one.

Very nice Andrew. Those Southwold/Cardiffs are making me want my order more and more!!!

My only shoe purchase 2006 was a pair of C&J Chelsea 5 with Dainite soles in Chestnut through Pediwear. I ordered them in December as Winter shoe, but it took them until end of February/begin of March for delivery. They are really beautiful boots, and (un)fortunately Winter decided to stay a bit longer this year (it's Mid-March and we have -4°C and about 1m of snow, when it normally should have disappeared 2-3 weeks ago...), so I even can put them to good use. Normally I would now think about shoes for the summer, but looking outside of the window into the white landscape doesn't put me into the mood for it

Do the Bexley shoe tree fill in the shoes in the width at 100% ?

Personally, I love them and think at US$21/pair, the value is fantastic. I currently own 24 pair of these.

As for completely filling the shoe, the answer is yes. They are split and hinged.

After seeing the 2003 Special and Newbury, I had to run to the defibrillator. Absolutely phenomenal.

Thanks M. The burnishing on the burgundy Newbury is spectacular and I wish it came across better in the photos. Green really nailed both of my special ordres.

Those are gorgeous TR, are they dark oak or burgundy?

Fantastic purchases, aportnoy. I love grained calf, and that museum gold is gorgeous. But I must say that it's the olive that speaking to me right now. You might want to keep it under lock and key....

I'm really impressed with the Edward Green "Newbury" in the mink suede. I think that may be the nicest looking wholecut I've seen. I do feel sorry for the poor minks that gave their lives for it, though...

Mental note: get wholecut in suede.
