Pray tell.

Some of us need to know time frames to set aside funds so the wife doesn't notice a large purchase. Of course, it would help to know what model will be available as well.

Fingers crossed, we will have some of the new ranges by the end of this month, with others coming over the next couple of months. Prices very similar to AS Exclusive.

A punched cap toe or semi brogue in burgundy shell (or calf) on the 109 last ? :)  Will the free lasted shoe trees be included?

These sound great, but alas not in our line up so far (never say never), more details to come when the shoe arrive with us. Lasted shoe trees will be included in the price!!

I would be interested in almost anything- Keats, Hulatt, Moore, Wilson, Hunt or some custom design oxford - with an Adeleide design at the top of my list. They are my favorite.

Months in the planning, the culmulation of our desire for exclusive styles combined with customer feedback has resulted in our brand new A Fine Pair of Shoes Collection. More styles coming soon......

But first we introduce HUGO, a Chelsea Boot with twist. They are made from the finest black calf leather with tan elastic side panels and they have a black and tan oak bark closed channel stitched sole with natural welt edge.



The next style we would like to introduce is SPENCER, a stunning midnight blue whole cut with fine punchwork detailing. They are made from the finest calf leather and have a black and tan oak bark closed channel stitched sole with natural welt edge.



All our range come with complimentary lasted "A Fine Pair Of Shoes" trees and free international shipping and are £325 ex VAT (£390 inc. VAT)

Congrats. Happy to see that whole cut in the 48 last. Can't wait to see what comes out in oxblood or burgundy. Hope it's also on the 48.

Would anybody be able to compare the fit of the 48 last with the 109 last in terms of width and length, and height of arch?

We have internally measured both 109 and 48 and they are almost exactly the same length. I am a 10.5F and the 48 last in a 10.5 fits me really well. As this is a Handgrade last, the fit around the heel is very good indeed and the overall shape is stunning.

I have been hand polishing both Hugo and Spencer and the results are really good - very good quality calf mirror shines with ease (and a bit of expertise), here are a couple of pictures:

Thanks for the information!  I was also wondering about how the width at the ball compares to the 109?  Which shoe was the shorter of the two out of interest?

 

It's a beautiful last, and I agree, you only find out for sure about the quality of your leather when you mirror polish them!

 

Congratulations on the quality of your new collection, particularly the navy wholecut - I love the welt stitch.  Looking forward to seeing what's offered in burgundy.

Thank you! What size are you and I will measure the two shoes up side by side in your size?

Many Thanks!  I'm a UK 7 in the 109 last.  The key things for me are length, the width at the ball, and whether the widest part occurs at the same distance from the heel.
