Those navy Guernesy tassels are unbelievable.

Thanks guys. They fit well and shoes I get rid of do not, so good chance these join my curated list of keepers.

Sutor Mantellassi in caramel brown, off of STF. What do you guys think?

Personally, I think the color make those look super cheap. Like Payless cheap. You may wish to use some polish to liven them up a bit.

Almost an instakop for me until I couldn't get past the non-English on the site smile.gif

Having seen some of those purple collection in real life, they are insane. The woven chukkas are fantastic, as are the navy suede Lowndes with purple stitching. Just fantastic!

Drummonds look swell Mr. Moo.

I bought a pair of the same model in tan just today at one of the two C&J stores on Jermyn St. They didn't have navy on offer as RTW in either of the stores I was in. Were these made to order? Or on offer from another retailer?

[Edit - now that I've gone to the Swedish web site mentioned by Kungapa I see that not only are they Navy but also the stitching is PURPLE! cloud.gif DAMN YOU MR. MOO! You got the fun onez! :lol]

How did you find the sizing? I ended up sizing down by 1/2 from my smallest pair of G & Gs. I found that the 348 last for the Drummonds was not only long (which I like) but also fairly roomy in width. Does this match with your experience?

I went through every shoe store on the street. Spent about 4 hours - it was a great chance to see most of the major UK makers in one afternoon.

I would have to say the most interesting color I saw was at Edward Green - a color they are marketing as 'chameleon' it was a lovely shade of pewter/olive. I managed to resist - but I'm sure that will only last so long.

It is the "purple collection" made for a maker in Sweden.

+1 I would return them.

The color is equally bad on these?

I LIKE these! There are all kinds of things you could wear with these shoes...anything but a suit, and even then, a summer suit will match fine.

Shoes like those have kept me from going the SM route.
