lovely for clubbing!

You have a good eye, they are indeed a Rothschild rejected upper that Tony so kindly allowed me to use. Thought I saw a pair of your most recent shoes while I was there, but that might have been the last time?? Can't remember...

Tony just sent my pending ones to be closed, 2 simple oxfords or so he tells me 1 black and 1 rioja, do these ring a bell?

If they were just now going to be closed than that means that they would have just been the cut leather pieces and I thought that I saw a shoe. Have you had any for repair.?? Nevertheless, among the many times that I have been there, they always seem to have something that is yours....pigskin stuff

cheers! i think the top pair is perhaps one of my most favorite shoes and gets worn alot, hence the recent resole

no my pending pairs are "boat race" a simple black oxford and a rioja cambridge

the piggies are not mine this time!

Love these. They look like an interesting take in the Longwing-gunboat without being gunboats.

this is one of the issues with pig skin, is the way it creases - it does not have the memory like calf, thus it retains the crease a little like the way shell does

This design was copied by Church's from Florsheim. I've seen this done all the way back in the late '40's.

Two orders from Cleverley yesterday:

1. A winter derby boot - captoe galosh with the lower half made in no. 8 cordovan and the upper half in pebble grained calf. Commando sole for cycling round London in the winter.
2. A double monk cap toe in black pebble grained calf.

Total price GBP 6000. The boots will be made first and will take a little while because they need to make a boot last (my first order with them was a shoe - false brogue oxford in black calf).

dunno! i am sure that with Churches being one on the worlds oldest shoe makers that it might be that or the other way around i have even seen this design of shoe but with a cap toe much earlier that the 40's
