Style: Templar + Medallion
Colour: Mahogany Burnished.
Ok, these MTO's have been in the works for sometime(several months). The reason for the length of time is due to the changes AS wanted to attempt in order to improve their Handgrade sole. I was not in any rush for them, so I was more than happy to allow Chay to 'express' himself.
The colour, last, medallion were all my choice. The sole is the work of the skilled craftsmen at AS, the changes to the last, the ribbing, the lasting, the finishing are really something else.
Those that follow his blog http://alfred-sargent.blogspot.com/
will have seen a picture of the sole last night. These are my pictures of the shoe itself and some more of the sole/heel.
I am very very jealous. I have been talking with Chay about the new waist, and low and behold, you beat me to it. I will tell you I have a special medallion in the works. I really love the new look. Fantastic--where them in excellent health.
P.S. The new heel is quite elegant as well. AS is really pushing the edges and I am liking the results.
