Very very nice! fing02[1].gif

The AC last looks great. I tried one before in a store, thought they looked very sleek but not too tight.

How do you like it compared to your G&G's square lasts (Deco, MH71 or TG73)?

Although for full disclosure these are two different Decos, one 6 months younger than the other

Thank you both!

It is too soon to tell how they feel compared to my G&Gs but stylewise I think they look great and the heel is tight and very comfortable but a few more miles are needed for a more thorough comparison

I have both, and I must say I like the AC last more. G&G can look goofy sometimes. AC is always subtle, and they seem to take less time to break in.

Truly amazing shoes! The Crockett & Jones-factory really make a great job on the AC-series. Do you know if it is the Ilcea Radica-leather that they use, or is it another similar tanned one?

I fear that it is from another source. It is not what JL uses.

I always question why C&J don't have their own 'Anthony Cleverley' line.

Okay. It do look gorgeous too though, and if they use it for the AC-range it will most likely be of very good quality.

Yeah I know, it would be great to have a C&J line that competed with the top tiers on the RTW-market. I've actually been talking with some "insiders" about it, and for the moment C&J have no plans to introduce a new own top line, unfortunately. Apparently the main problem is that they are having real trouble getting enough good material just for the AC-range, and at the same time they struggle to keep up with the continuesly high demand of their own lines. Right now they can't produce anything more than they do.

They tried to buy the Alfred Sargent factory when they went bankrupt the last time the other year, but since the Turks beat them to it they still can't make more shoes than they do.

On that matter though I'd rather have Alfred Sargent and their fine handgrade and exclusive line on the market, instead of having it turned into a C&J factory filial. We need the diversety of different brands and minds.

AFAIK EG does AC for GC

 

But who are these Turks you speak of regarding AS?

Are you sure about that? I recall Tom Park saying that is not true (presuming he is a Cleverley insider)

Na, when I wear my AC, I can tell the weak arch stiffer that EG has is missing. It is likely that the shoe is made by Crockett and Jones.
Apparently, the upper they use will be the same as their bespoke operation.
