Would you recommend black all over or only select parts like heel and toecap?

kev: do you have the scoop on Chay's motive for leaving AS or has it been mentioned elsewhere on SF? He was with the company for decades and had a large part in designing the new models that made the factory pop. Odd that he would just leave like that.

Shameless cross-posting from the Vass thread, my first pair from Vass. I think I've got enough shoes now, next step will probably have to be bespoke in two to three years.

That is the hardest thing to admit, but once you do, you are free to enjoy them.

Ah, so he is like Tony Gaziano leaving Edward Green to set up Gaziano & Girling. Wildsmith makes more shoes than just loafers, right?

I hope it ends up a really good thing for Chay. I hope things continue to go smoothly with AS with such an important member now gone.

That is wild, cousin.

Yes, these look like corrected grain. The plastic coating should add some proof against rain and muck, though the permanent creases are a bugger.

Here's another new pair of shoes, which arrived less than an hour before my Vass pair. They're from New & Lingwood, marked Poulsen Skone, but I've no idea which manufacturer made them. From what I've read, Poulsen Skone shoes are usually made by Grenson to the Masterpiece standard, but I've never seen this sole configuration from them before. I forgot to take pictures of the interior text, but I'll snap some pictures tomorrow if anyone could help me identify the maker.

Nice! The N&L P&S shoes I've owned who were made by Grenson did not have that sole at all, and like you I've never seen it from them. I'd say Cheaney, they do a lot of rebranded shoes, and I think they look like the soles of the Cheaney Imperial collection, which have the same quite extreme fiddle back. Pic of it here on a pair I owned, if you scroll down a bit: http://imgur.com/a/MxcQw
