I think that might've been me. I thought I recognized somebody when I first got there, but couldn't place him.

Anybody know the reason why Alfred Sargenat have no pictures of its AS Handgrade on its website anymore.I can recall 2 or so months ago having a look at these on their website.

They're redesigning their site so they took the old one down. There's a bunch of handgrade stuff in their blog that you can check out in the meantime, or I'm sure you can email Chay directly for some pics.

Saw Chay in London today and he mentioned he would be bringing several new models during his US trunk shows this Fall. Dates as follows:

NYC: September 22 @ Leffot
LA: September 25-26 @ the Palomar Hotel in Westwood
SF: September 28-29 @ the Marriott Marquis on 4th Street

^ Any pics of your shoes or the factory or showroom, MTE?

I got an email about it the upcoming show. The times and locations are on the AS blog:

I look forward to meeting Chay irl after much email correspondence and to getting his feedback on the fit of shoes I have now, in order to see if I should try a different last and/or size on an order I've already placed. I know a couple others are planning to visit in San Francisco, and I hope more are, since I twisted Chay's arm to get him here!

Happy to contribute. Here's my Handgrade pair: model Keats in Horween whisky shell cordovan, last 19, leather soles and dark purple lining along with vanity sole nails.

Wow, STUNNING VRaivio. Hope my MTO handgrade Carroll loafers in tobacco suede with pebble-grain tassels come out half as great as those.

What is that mark on the inside right heel counter?
post #431 of 610
Also, is the brogueing different on purpose?
post #432 of 610
I don't like the fiddly bit on the heel, the dog's ear (C&J Handgrade also have this), the fiddleback or the elongated last.

Superb quality no doubt, but they look over designed.

Thanks for all the comments gentlemen. Our new website will be ready in September, until then we will continue featuring shoes that we have made for our clients and new styles on our blog.

Looking forward to meeting some of you in New York at Leffot again and San Francisco and Los Angeles for the first time (full itinerary is also detailed on the blog.)

Best,

Chay.

I just thought I would add that I have been working with Chay at Alfred Sargent on a couple MTO shoes and have found him to be most accommodating. There has been some confusion as to what size and fitting are appropriate, so try-ons are being made and shipped to me, at Alfred Sargent's expense, to make sure I get the best fit possible. Now that is customer service.

Thanks, men.

luk-cha: I wrote a detailed list to Chay and did not specify anything concerning stitchings. Maybe all shades close to whisky shell are made with stitches of this colour?

meister: I believe that spot is grease from the tip of my nose. I do love to smell my cordovans when new, Horween's vegetal tanning agents are pure bliss.

Ich_Dien: the brogueing is standard. At least I didn't specify it as anything different. What I noticed is that the smaller perforations aren't puched clearly through like all bigger ones.

rabiesinfrance: yes, I'm sad I didn't mark down that dog ear seam. I, too, do dislike them. Not a big thing, though, as these are covered by trous.
