Great photography! Looks like the toes of the shoes go up too much. Here's a pic of a similar shoe, made by Meermin:

 

 

Yes, noticed that. Our shoemaker seems to be in running shoes mode. Will have that corrected.

 

It's hard to judge from the pictures but the toe curvature of your shoes might not necessarily, depending on the leather used, be too much.

 

This upwards curvature prevents buckling of the sole while walking and delays the formation of ripples and creases.

Here's a €1300 bespoke shell example featuring this aforementioned trait:

I'm sure your shoemaker knows what he's doing, so take everything armchair sartorialists say around here with a grain of salt.Yours truly included.

I second the notion for a simplistic sans serifs b/w logo that works on anything from labels to print to stamped or embossed packaging .

 

I very much like the Margiela logo where depending on which collection you buy (menswear 10, womenswear 1, shoes 22, perfume 3, accessoires 11 etc.) the number is circled:

I will reiterate my desire for a Savile Row style label.

I don't know if you know it, but, you are talented.

Lot of nice suggestions and ways to work with available technologies.

 

We have been thinking of buying a digital fabric printing machine. Can then be used for printing completely customized labels.  We just need $100K in spare change

Agree. What I have understood is that shoes that may be used "outdoors" tend to have a bit of a curve so that the front does not bump into the uneven terrain. 

Dress shoes are comparatively flat soled in the front.

 

This is when the joy of custom comes into play, you choose your curvature.

Just wanted to share my experience with Luxire's customer service as of late. I've had mail correspondence with Luxire the last couple of days regarding a couple of shirts I've had made. I've been very satisfied with the product, but disappointed with the collar shape (my fault). I've spoken to Ashish on how to correct this and he's been very helpful. I asked how much Luxire charges of remaking the collars and was told they'd be happy to do it free of charge and send me pictures of the new collar before shipping the shirts out so I can make sure that I'm satisfied with the product.

 

To me, this is what extraordinary customer service is about: doing everything you can to guarantee that the customer is 100 % satisfied before the company sends out a product they can stand by.

 

Thank you for a great product, experience and service, Luxire.

This is called toe spring and currently low toe spring (the toe very close to the ground) is very much in vogue with the high end makers. Looks more elegant IMO.

Just wanted to praise @luxire for the 100,000th time on their quality workmanship.

 

I don't pretend to know and fully understand the full extent of just how nicely made their products are.  I know that the fabrics feel nicer than those offered by other competitively priced MTM outfits, the buttons are of better quality, that requests are followed and fully implemented, etc.  However, several tailors (and alterationists) have told me that they're really impressed by the workmanship and surprised by the price point.  They've pointed out everything from the cutting, to the stitching, to the quality of the material (fabric, sewing yarn, etc.) used.  

 

One of the tailors I'm referring to above is a Hong Kong based traveling tailor.  I'm using them for a suit; due to my sizing it's difficult to get an OTR suit, so I'm trying to dial in a good fit in order to send to Luxire for future replication.  This tailor didn't even try to sell me his company's shirts after extensively looking over the Luxire shirt I was wearing. I think that speaks highly.
