Thanks! I'll have more attractive pictures of the benchgrade line when the shoes arrive.

Is there a particular reason why they don't seem to offer size 11.5 on any of their models? I has a sad. frown.gif

The mid-ankle balmoral boot comes in a 11.5

Some of the photographed models do bear a strong resemblance to the Herring Premier range, also made by Cheaney. The above Gryffin Wholecut can be contrasted with the Herring Rushden perhaps? http://www.herringshoes.co.uk/product-info.php?&brandid=6&shoeid=5469

I wish Andrew every success and feel he's well on his way to achieve his goal to provide quality shoes at a very accessible price.

Congrats!!! I'm very happy for you and I wish you the best of luck. You were a great seller on SF and I am sure you will do great in this new endeavor.

Good luck! $225 is a great price for the basics, and $400 is more than fair for the fancier stuff, and the shoes are absolutely lovely. Get enough publicity (that probably means things like GQ and the search engine optimized spam pages like askmen, sorry to say) and I wouldn't be surprised if you get a nice little thing going.

Certainly keep us updated.

All shoes, particular if you aim to keep the cost down have a certain resemblance with each other. It cost additional monies to have a new pattern and grade it for all the sizes required. Look at EG's own shoes and the one's made for RLPL. The difference between the two are only small design variations, which do not affect the basic pattern.

Andrew Lock's Gryffin might be based on the same pattern as Herring's Rushden, but the Gryffin has an additional line of perforation, along the top-line and down the throat. Gryffin comes on last 208, while the Rushden comes on last 205 (I'm not au fait with Cheaney's lasts as to have an opinion which one is preferable).

Last but not least Lock's shoes clocks in financially considerable lower (GBP 250) compared with the Herrings at GBP 325, At this stage, Andrew Lock deserves encouragement,as the product he offers looks thoroughly professional.

Yes aware of that, I didn't say they were identical, did I?

Aware of this also, you'll note I wished him success and acknowledged his very accessible pricing.

Rolf, your post reads as if I'm unsupportive or negative of our SF brethren. All I did was point out some similarities between existing products.

Did you or did you not agree with the one unsupportive and negative comment in this thread?

(I had to google what 'orly' means, so far I only knew the word as the name of an airport in Paris.)

I'm all for it but I would prefer to wait until people are familiar with the lasts.

Or just keep this thread alive and kicking. Styleforum is one of the more SEO optimized sites on the net, and it's actually fun and (can be) informative.
