The Ultimate "HARDCORE" Shoe Porn Thread (Bespoke only) - Page 158

^? My shoes fit. I did, however, require multiple fittings. First with the plastics and then leather. I didn't find the plastics to be very useful.

I was referring to my wanting to alter the shape of the toe for future orders. To do so they just needed to add some leather to the tip of the last. They wanted me to do a plastic try-on for that as well (and the price for the plastics was around €350 IIRC). crazy.gif

I heard that JLP charges something like $350 for flush metal toe plates to be installed.

^I don't recall the price to have plates installed post delivery, but a resole is north of a $1,000....

Cleverley are making me a pair of stingray wholecuts at the moment and I'm about an 11.5 UK size.

They'll definitely be party shoes - worn with something like dark grey velvet trousers and a dark navy peak lapel one button jacket. The shoes are midnight blue verging on black so hopefully won't be too gangsterish.
