Nice! What last are those on? The chisel or soft square? Guessing the former, but they look softer in some photos.

The soft square but next to my chiseled lasts they look awfully similar

Did you request a black welt with a natural sole edge? It looks a bit odd IMO.

Thanks! They have definitely stepped up their game and AS HG shoes are my most comfortable right out of the box.

It's museum calf.

If you're not available to be measured by Chay, then I understand the trial shoes. But he is an awesome fellow and does great work!

Some of the earlier posts in this thread, from early 2010, indicated that the shoes were GBP 450, or with lasted trees GBP 550. Are those prices still accurate?
post #384 of 610
No i think those were introductory prices.

Sorry I missed this.

I requested an antiqued sole edge (sole edge color is very important to me) but I do trust Chay when it comes to detail. So when they showed up like this at first I was all ???

Then, taking the whole concept into consideration and after showing them to my wife, I agreed that the darker brown welt painting not only highlighted the edge detail but created a nice visual break point between the upper and the sole.

If I had a small gripe it would be that I wish the sole edge didn't protrude out on the side as much (a la G&G Deco range) toward the side and front, (when looking down from the top) but it's something that I can live with.

As far as pricing all I will say is that those who jumped at the opportunity to support AS early on definitely benefit.

Gentlemen,

Since I am neither affiliated with Leffot, nor Alfred Sargent, (but I am sincere admirer of the shoes) I thought I would post this link to the new handgrades being displayed at the trunk show. I wish I could make it. I think the new sole spectacular and wish I could see it in person.

I think the loafers particularly brilliant.

This particular show takes on more significance, as it is the debut of the "New" AS Handgrade Sole. It is quite a lot narrower in the waist and features a V shaped heel but retains the fiddleback sole at the same time. This new sole elevates the level of the AS Hangrade yet again and speaks to their desire to push the envelope
