Great pictures Ascotshoes, however, I would suggest that you include photos of the shoes from the wearer's point of view, like this:

This. Weird angles FTL.

Hello Roger, 

 

That's indeed Bordeaux - the sun was setting so I had to use a little artificial light. But it gives you a good idea 

what the colour like at night.

Goyser welt has it's place.  They don't look right in a sleek last.  

 

What's color is the first set of shells?

 Yes and no - I'm not fond of the contrasting Goyser stitching on the monks above, but do love the tone-on-tone execution on my tri-cognac oxfords:

I absolutely have nothing against a tri-color shoes. But just want to point out, according to Laszlo Vass' book "Handmade Shoes for Men" Quote:

"However, as a rule, shoe designers restrict themselves to combinations of two colors or contrasting leather finishes. Any more than this would be regarded as excessive extravagance." end of quote.

That's page 80 from the very book that Vass authored in 2006. I guess style and taste change over time.

I'm glad he broke his own rule.  These rank among my favourite shoes.

That's probably a customer MTO.  VASS will do anything you want within reason.

  Pretty much all Vass shoes are MTO, so I'm not sure that is much of a distinction.

Well they do have about 80 'stock models' that are cheaper

The point is, Laszlo does not normally carry a tri-color shoe in his regular line.  Majority, if not all of the one you see are MTO.
