I had a shot of the double-monk alongside a different shoe with the color I ordered, but the pic tipped over 5MB and imageshak won't let me upload...

I was with her and Dino at the shop when she read this, you'll be glad to know it gave her a really good laugh.

I was really surprised as well, given that my first factory tour in Northampton on Thursday was my only baseline (pictorial in the AS thread). btw, I've decided to make up an odd waistcoat in that LP shepherds check you wore to Mama's.

I don't believe they sell direct at the factory, but from the retail prices I saw this morning in Naples (compared to the US bespoke price), it's about an 80%-100% premium.
