Nah,I am just busting sri's chops. I didn't know that someone could create the last for you and you could take that last to the bootmaker and ask them make shoes. Hell,I thought bootmakers won't use anything but their own created lasts.

^ Most don't. Alfred Sargent is being a gamechanger!

AS is fast becoming a very attractive option for me ... I just saw this over at AAAC:

Those are really nice looking!

They are nice but I assume that price point is at EG's level to get those handgrade shoes. Any info on pricing,I really like those lasts.
post #14185 of 14248
So what do these AS cost?
post #14186 of 14248
looks similar to the G&G i admired (the bespoke st. james with scalloped counters) but why is the above back seam so sloppy and ugly?
post #14187 of 14248
These are gorgeous shoes. Do you know how much they were?

Alfred Sargent MTO.

Thread on AAAC says that the Handgrade AS are £450 a pair. You can request things that add to the price - don't know what. For £450 you get the styles and finishes you see here including the fiddle-back waists which look just as good as Gaziano and Girling from the photos.

Either AS are charging £450 a pair in order to pick up market share from Edward Green, JL and G&G customers or these other shoemakers are taking the micky.

I remember that Gaziano and Girling entered the market at the same price point - £450 for ready to wear and £500 for MTO. Within two years their prices had rocketed to £560 RTW and £660 MTO. Nowadays a shoe that cost me £500 two and half years ago costs £700 - 720 depending on who you go to.

I would think AS would have to start out charging less, in that they need to win converts who know them from their less rarified days. They lack the cachet in the high-end market to command G&G/Top Drawer prices. But if the experiment works, I'm guessing the price tag will rise, if only to avoid looking cut-rate in comparison with the competition.

Is it just me or did the toe caps on the AS look asymmetrical?
