106's on the chiseled last. Wasn't crazy about the shape and fit of the last at first but it has come around on me.

Nice color - what's the code for that one?

Not sure, they are these. In the comments Tom said that it was a special order color.

I have two questions.  

  1. I am only a few weeks into my first St.C order and I'm having thoughts of selling most of my collection and replacing them with new St.C orders.  Is this normal?
  2. Does anyone know what color St.C has that is close to a dark burgundy. Something like GG Rioja?  
  • I have seen the color 611 like in the example below but that appears to be more of a cherry color than a dark burgandy.

Depends what your collection consist of?

They picked a bad pair as MTO sample - noticed the blemishing to the leather around the toe section of the right shoe. 

These would have been marked as Rejects if they were John Lobb shoes. 

 

Just my 2c.

Agree with VR, if they haven't been worn, there's no justification for the pronounced creases around the Vamp section.

Best practices dictates that vamps be cut from prime leather...in the best part of the hide--the kidney area. Prime on any hide is roughly one third the total square footage.
