Ordered straight from the factory. Doing business with Chay is always a pleasure.

But in the US I might consider contacting Steve at Leffot (there are some nice mto-bensons at their website) or Ron Rider.

They are on my wish-list for now. Great shoes!

Are the "exclusive" tier shoes on A Fine Pair of Shoes handgrade? Can anyone comment on their quality?
post #530 of 610

these are before and afters- couple years down the track from when these first appeared in this thread.

 

 1st generation (I think) handgrades, and I'd asked Chay to do a reddish-brown.  When I got them I decided there was too much burgundy for my taste, taking into account the already eye-catching buckles and medallion, so put them on the window sill for the sun to burn the red off.

 

 This is the result.  1st is the original, rest are now.

 

I like it- shoos got character and a nice patina, tho that doesn't show up so well in the pics.

Interesting. I like it both ways.

No the Exclusive range is not the same as the Handgrade. The quality is very high on the exclusives however. IMO very close to C&J handgrades. AS handgrades are second to none among the Northampton RTW shoes.

I have only one pair from the Exclusive range but would be happy to have more. They are well worth the 50 to 75 pound extra cost over C&J benchgrade if you are looking for a slightly superior shoe to the standard Northampton benchgrades.

I wonder if one could get a helmet covered in shell. That would be sweet!

These are extra special. Don't think I've never seen the Keats in shell before. It completely transforms the shoe.

That's the shoe that influenced me to jump on the AS Whiskey Ramsey... which is scheduled to come in around 6 weeks!

That should be a great shoe as well. Was that via the MTO group here on SF?

Did you jump on the MTO blue calf double monks that Epaulet was doing thru Carmina?
