Question:

Is the finish on these shoes somewhat like or is it actually the same as John Lobbs or Vass's museum leather or is it something that looks similar but something different entirely.

Would it be possible to do a belt in this matching colour?

Basically from what I've gathered​ from the last couple of pages this Last has more room in the toe box when compared to the TG73. Since the TG73 tends to be a bit snug for me this is good news. Other than that I wont know for sure until the my current order for the St James II arrives in a few months. I do have a Thorpe on the same Last due to arrive in about a month, but tend to be a bit more roomy on the same Last based on experiences I have had so far.

 

Not so sure I want to order the same shoe in different colors, or if I really want to order this one before receiving the first. I would of course feel better about it if I already had the first one to know how it actually works out. At least I have until the end of the month to decide.

I am ordering it I am assuming you take the same size on both last. I enjoy the snug fit on tg73 and this one little room is fine as long as I don't have to go down a half in size etc

Understand, and this is how I ordered the Thorpe and St James II I have on order now. However I have neither at this point, and I have no idea how the St James looks or fits me yet.

I find that hatch grain "reinvents" the shoe, inviting permutations.  But then, I am also a sucker for the Gable and Sinatra.
