Matta II is one gorgeous model, I love it. I've seen it at the Lobb Madison Ave store. I think your best bet is the Lobb store or Neiman Marcus. If you live outside of NY, the Lobb store will ship to you tax-free.

Speaking of Gomez, just received my first commission. He actually posted a picture of the unpolished shoes on his website. I will follow-up later with my own pictures. I ordered the burgundy wingtip fourth shoe on the second row. http://www.dimitribottier.com/3.aspx

And a Grenson for Paul Stuart

From Dmitri Gomez at Crockett & Jones, Paris.





























The wings are cut shallow-er than normal, creating an illusion of a longer (and slimmer) shoe. It's an English shoe with a French accent. Also comes with matching belt, custom, and shoe polish in mid-brown and burgundy as suggested by M. Gomez.

Lovely shoes, Naturlaut II.

I'm surprised the are labelled Crockett & Jones and not Dimitri Gomez, Paris. I've never worked out if the relationship between C&J and Gomez goes further than sharing just the premises.

At least Gomez hasn't picked up on that ugly detail which all the factory made C&J shoes seem to have: a two-piece heal counter with an nasty seam running right through (penny-pinching lot).

Wow, the Gomez C&J is heavenly! It reminds me of Vass Budapester U last in red cognac.

Me too, I was under the impression that Gomez bespokes are sold under his own label.
