Pics at last!

They are beautiful!

Lovely finish.

Which brings to mind one really great benefit of these SF group MTOs. The makers know that all of SF is watching - talk about pressure to perform! happy.gif

I hope everyone else is enjoying their pair!
Did you size down one size? Or half?

Did 1 full size and stayed the same on width. When are yours coming?

I agree with the fit of the shoe trees on my Millers...do not fit snugly across the vamp. I found the same thing in my trees for a recent G&G Deco. They cut them very low across the instep down to the toe. They don't fit snugly. I can push down on the vamp behind the toes and their is a lot of space.

As for finishing on the Miller, I am little disappointed as well. The leather on the toe box has a very grainy texture. Can't really raise much of a shine. Had the same thing on an A&S Moore in calf. Any recommendations? I have tried the spit polish technique, but still can't raise much of a shine. What do you mean by "elbow grease"? Rubbing? Buffing? Any advice here would be appreciated.

The one thing they did on my Miller that is superb is a really nice install of the toe taps.

The fit is great. I am a US 10.5 and tend to go UK 9.5 most often. I am glad I went down to an E width. I have the Moore on the 724 in a 9.5 F and it was a little roomy. The E gives me the snug fit I tend to prefer.

Two pics.



Shows the grainy texture of the toe.



Great job. note the beveled edge of the toe tap.

I should have gone to a 9UK instead of a 9.5 as it feels a little loose. I am already getting creasing on the uppers but they are so beautiful.

What does the writing on the box say?

Can anyone else please post fit pics? I relaced the boots as opposed to the way they came laced and it feels a little tighter through the ankle which is better
