What a coincidence, I also wore my Brecons biggrin.gif. They've become my default travelling shoes.

Not sure if this was posted before, but Ben Silver has a decent deal (was $690 now $483) on some burgundy handgrades.

Burgundy calf, not Manton approved though.

As far as I know they use beechwood shanks.

In all Goodyear Welted styles we only use wooden shanks. Metal shanks are only used in our flat lasted patent shoes.

I am looking for a narrow fit last with a round toe. According to the people at Jermyn Street I should take a D but that usually limits my options drastically. Any suggestions for a narrowish E last?

348 isnt narrow enough?

also I think the 360 is beautiful, havent tried it so I dont know, but it looks pretty narrow

Thanks for the reply I know its a personal choice but what's people's opinion about cap toe or plain toe for my first black shoes?

 

I'm thinking of Hallam, Wembly or Alex.

 

Also is Alex (on the 348 last) still inflated in price? I was told that due to the Bond effect the price sky rocketed. (please correct me if I am wrong).

If you had asked me last year I would have said either Alex or Wembly, today I would say Westbourne or Malton.

Wholecut is not as versatile as a cap toe...imo.

I would say Westbourne is an excellent choice though...beauuutiful

I didn't notice a significant jump on prices secondary to the movie. Demand might be higher though because of it. Recent price change was across the board (similar to many other brands).

Thanks again for the suggestion I went to Jermyn street today and tried both the 360 and 348. I agree that 360 looks beautiful but when I tried the 348 the fit was narrower and much more snug and fit is king. :)

 

I think I will either go for a Hallam or Alex. One question though I have about 1/2 cm of opening on the top of my V shape where my laces are. Do you think this is enough for a C and J leather (I don't know how much it stretches). I checked with the sales person and he said the fit and size is how it should be. I presume this means minimum closing of the V once it stretches?

nice to hear :)

I dont know what's considered a good opening, I just know that if you can close it fully, its too large and you cant fix your foot obviously. 1/2 cm sounds pretty acceptable to me. 

Also, for me there is quite a big difference in how swollen my feet are between a warm summer day and a cool autumn/spring day. Something to think of when you are trying out shoes in cold weather.

Can anyone provide some guidance on "Cavalry Calf" ? Having searched this thread there appear to be two camps on the subject:

a) a wax-infused full grain calf skin
b) corrected grain

Additionally... if #1 is true, please advise on care.

Thank you
