Thanks Roger! I am lucky I can get away wearing suits or sports coat for work with my chukka boots. i was going to order the Carmina blue suede chukka boots but decided on the Vass as it's a better fit for me.

@tchoy Ascot has that blue suede pair in my size and I was tempted even  though I have the Carminas.  Yes, I have issues....

 

They have a sleek looking pair in black calf as well, but I need to sit on my wallet at least until the fall as home renovations are eating up discretionary cash.

 

I wear my St. C. chukkas with a sport coat and tie, but generally go with a dress shoe for suits.

 

Enjoy those blue suede beauties!

You me and a few of us here all have issues smile.gif.
I have more shoes then I care to admit. If budget wasn't wasn't an issues I think most of my shoes will be coming from Saint Crispins. Your Stc chukka a are just stunning.

For smaller sizes in Vass, stick to the following chart and you will be fine.
If between sizes, take the smaller one.
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schuhgr%C3%B6%C3%9Fe#mediaviewer/Datei:Shoesize-adult-de.svg

UK6 = EU39,5
UK6.5 = EU40
UK7 = EU40,5
UK7.5 = EU41
UK8 = EU41,5

 

I am at the upper end of that scale at UK8 so hopefully the issue is less amplified for me than what it would be for someone ordering a UK6 (ie someone ordering EU40). I ordered EU42 on Reszo's recommendation.

Love your choice in goyser with a closed-laced shoe.  You have another pair with that make-up, correct?  Your photos helped me from second guessing myself as I have an order with goyser on the OEII on the way =)

Is it just me or the more I look at these kinds of shoes, the uglier AE/alden/c&j benchgrades/etc look.

Hey guys, I'm placing an order for two cordovan shoes and I was wondering if I could get some input on whether or not this makeup makes sense and has a place in one's shoe wardrobe. First of all, I have no derby or cordovan shoes and I usually wear business casual clothes. I'm probably over-thinking this but I'm dropping a lot of money and I don't want to have any regrets.

#1 Punched cap toe derby, basically the same as below (F Last / Single Sole) but in oxblood shell.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

When I see this style it's mostly in calf and shell seems much more prevalent with other styles of derby shoes (PTB / LWB). Is there a valid reason for this? Does the fact that it has features pulling in opposite directions make it more or less versatile? On one hand there's the sleeker F last, quarter brogue, and single sole and then in the opposite direction there's cordovan and derby. I love the design, it's just I'm wondering if the shell would make it worse and I'd be better off getting a LWB.

Also, the other shoe is a Budapest in antique cognac cordovan so I thought a punch toe would make sense. Am I going to regret the punched cap toes? Will this makeup not look good or have no place in my wardrobe? Thanks.

I have the latter model in Antic Cordovan, P2 last, single soles. No complaints. The basic wing-tip (Budapester) works wonderfully well on their more modern lasts.
post #11501 of 13372

For you 8.5D barries (alden) or 8UK rains (carmina) out there, do you take 42 or 41.5 in the F-last, 3636 last and P2 last? 

post #11502 of 13372

I take a 42

Thanks, decided to go with oxblood shell LWB as well as the antique cognac shell budapest. Just deciding on whether or not to go with goyser. Leaning toward no since it's on the f last but I think it'd look good either way.

Go for Goyser. It adds the extra hand aesthetic the the shoes.

Do you want nice shoes, or nice Central European shoes?
