Got a few PMs asking if I could provide better pictures of the green ["caviar", so the sales associate said] Corthay monkstraps, so here are a few detail shots:

Personally cannot pull Corthay off... the same reason with Berlutti. Maybe one day.

Burton, I love your shoes and medallion. The soles alone are works of art.

I don't think so. It's likely to be Alfred Sargent and possibly a couple of G&G models.

I don't know about the AS part of the equation and cannot speak to it. I can tell you, if it is AS, it is not going to be G+G models. I have had numerous discussions with Chay and I can't see that ever happening. What I can see, and after a perusal of the web would like to see, is a reintroduction of the Wildsmith styles. Whoever is going to reintroduce Wildsmith (Cheaney, AS, EG, some other bloke who has never made shoes before) should bring back the styles as well as the name.
