LOL. PV it was a similar discussion and we don't need to live through that again. Suffice it to say that gemming discussions tend to bring out the worst in people.

Burton, not sure if its been asked or answered, but how much did both pairs set you back? and what was the turn around time?

Edit: When I got home I checked pricing shoes are 795 GBP including vat which is less 20%. The trees were 100 GBP again less the 20%. Anyway, I thought it was a real deal since Chay was making me a shoe that he had to basically cut from scratch.

I know that I have already posted a few of the teaser pics which Chay sent me, but I would like to share the story of these shoes with you. Earlier in the year, Chay and I were discussing different styles of shoes and things we thought could be cool or interesting. In a series of quick e-mails Chay and I talked about the Benson and the legacy of the shoe. I love the look, but wanted something slightly different.
Chay suggested a dark "pin grain" and low and behold the final product exceeded my expectations. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I love this type of Monk because it truly captures a vintage feel wtihout appearing dated or costumey. Lovely design and wonderfully executed. Thanks, Chay.

I hope you like them.

pin grain is fantastic stuff. it ages so gracefully.

i saw a fantastic make up at materna in black. something to die for.

Looks like you've been out getting drunk in those once or thrice.

Shoes like that BEG to be abused once in a while, IMHO. A battle scar or 2 is a requirement.

Saw these at the Mansion and thought it is an interesting way to combine a lace up with a monk. I do like the last used.

Not sold on the Ferragamo, but then again I don't like Italian shoes.
