Does anybody know this model, and know when it was produced? It is not corrected grain or polished binder, but there seems to be a weakness on the side of one of the shoes where the leather wrinkles, so I'm not sure I will keep them. The tongue is also partly stitched to the side of the shoe, and I'm not sure I like that, but that could just be removed I guess. Does anyone have experience with this? I will probably post pictures tomorrow.

A few months ago I bought a pair of monks by Church's from Yoox, they were NOS made from Cape Buck on the 73 last. Pretty sure Church's doesn't use Cape Buck anymore. Overall it was a great purchase, I'm sure you'll be very happy with your shoes.

Their high end line is top quality in RTW shoes.icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Inside the shoes, just below the Church's logo, does it say 'London, Paris, New York' or 'London, Paris, Milan, New York' ?

(I can't believe they are a HUGE size 13d! What a rare size for Vintage US Shoes, where most are too small for the modern foot to wear)

The Natural Patina on the upper broguing and stitching comes from the color of the brown stitching slowly bleeding (ever so slightly) into the upper leather. 100% natural.

Pretty awesome!! Needed quoted. happy.gif

Like them both but the Wings seem to be made to a higher standard. Sole shot of the captoes?

About the 100% Handmade, well I think DFW might have something to say about that... shog[1].gif

Is that purple piping on these? Does one notice when they're on your feet?
post #13932 of 19792
jerrybrowne, a great pair you have there. Budapester without overt clunkiness, the only way to roll.
post #13933 of 19792
About a year ago I found an eccentric monk pair from Bally's Scribe series. Since I liked the setup, another pair was an obvious choice.

Toffee-coloured calf uppers, double-soles with an odd terraced construction (bengalstripe, you know the proper term, right?), single buckle, red piping around the ankle, plump toes.

It's just a bad pic. No purple piping.

Thanks, and yes - a little bit of slippage. I would ask how you know, but you know. smile.gif
