Thanks, guys (I'll be sure to tell Tony his artisanship is highly appreciated on SF, and even encourage him to become a member).
I'm really looking forward to, both, meeting Tony and the whole bespoke experience. I've been dreaming of these three pairs of shoes (including the Hayes, below) -- as well as two Koji Suzukis -- since I first joined the Forum. I can't believe their nearly here/mine. Unbelievable!
My dilemma with the Hayes is that, while I love the the tie-up version, I don't have any cool monks, save a pair of Crockett and Jones that, compared to the Carlyle, seem quite pedestrian (no pun intended). I may have to call an audible on this one, on site with Tony.
