My modest haul. But tight over the vamp.

Did you get a size too narrow? I don't imagine that Dean and Tony have time to fit people at this sample sale, but i could be wrong...

They certainly do. I tried on 4 different pairs shoes, and they helped me search for others in my size, until we settled on the Gable.

Those midnight Gables are amazing by the way, hope my Oakhams in midnight turn out as deep as yours. Can i trouble you with an outdoor pic when possible? thumbs-up.gif

Same as my sinatras (e), but wouldn't have minded a g if there was one. Can probably tighten lacing a bit more and they do stretch a bit. If nothing else, I don't think I will have a big problem turning it here or on eBay for 250.

Looks awesome, but it lacks a little depth. I tried on monks in the same leather, and they told me they're offering a patina service in their shop now. Might be worth looking into, if that's your thing.

Nice! Welcome to the Wigmore family. :)

What was wrong with them btw?

I like maple color, it is indeed very light tan color. It is probably possible to darken it a little bit.

Was also at the sample sale. Getting up at 3.30am, then travelling 5h to London and getting to Timothy Everest by 11am turned out to be well worth it. I got myself what Tony described as "probably the best deal in the sale." Travelling back now, so won't be able to post pictures until tomorrow ... it'll help keep the tension up for you guys :-)

... oh and before I forget, I also picked up a lovely driving jacket, a silk scarf and a shirt at Timothy Everest.

Here we go.... This is what I picked up this morning at the sale...
Grant in Vintage Oak on TG73
Connaught in Midnight Blue on MH71




Also picked up a solid white single cuff shirt and two pocket squares from Timothy Everest

Well in case you change your mind and decide to sell those, let me know. I assume they are 10.5 E
