Actually, from my poor pictures they do look kind of fugly. They are the first pair of bespoke with Cleverley and my insipration was a 1970 Plymouth Superbird +Cleverley Catalogue #24 the brown buck derby with hand sewn wingcap. I liked the way they looked in person so but i wanted them in a dark brown calf.

Good point, but I did win $1200 and recruited a new stable of talent off the bus from Omaha and it was like walking on a cloud.
