As mentioned in my previous post, i tend to wear alot of sportcoats with windowpane checks and gunclub checks paired with patterned ties. Hence, im a bit concerned now if i should get seamless croc shoes or just go with several different seamless calf skin shoe. Any advise would be much appreciated.
For me personally I would be wearing it with grey/blue pants, shirts, tie and a white coat. I am a physician and will be the the first to admit it is not good choice for most physician. However, I have good chunk of practice that is cosmetic, and developed an image of having certain look. Now I enjoy that personally but also help me getting away with wearing croc to work. Now in the other part of my practice where it is mainly medical probably not.
Also for evening dress with local white robes here I think it would work, I hope smile.gif

I agree 100% with you, I have three croc shoes lol & I don't wear any of them to my practice, did once & learned a valuable lesson & never again.

Some advice for you folks who are getting (or intending to get) test shoes for their Aurum or Argentum handwelted lines. 

I think it's important to do exactly as Antonio says with regards to how much to wear them before giving him feedback.

After some experience with his test shoes, I think it would be good to wear them every other day, for probably at least a good 3 weeks. 

Don't rush into giving him feedback in your impatience to get your hands on the final shoes (I know it's exciting). But take your time to really let your feet sink into the test shoes. 

Wear them faithfully and give it time. Some initial hot spots (esp over the instep area) may clear up after some wear. 

Don't get your test shoes in very loud designs or loud colours that would make you hesitate putting them on. Plain, "safe" designs in brown, black, or dark burgundy would be good choices. 

I'd gotten a pair of test chukkas from Antonio some time ago, that after some wear, now actually fit perfectly, but I'd perhaps given feedback to give additional allowance in areas that might not have needed them, and as a result, the final shoes might end up just a touch loose after more breaking in. 

 

If it's one thing I've learnt.... ALWAYS listen to the shoemaker. ALWAYS.  He knows best. Not I.

 

My 2 cents.

With out-of-stock and in stock items in a single order, they will just be delivered together?

 

Out-of-stock Argentum RTW items will take.. 8-10 weeks?

Those are very nice.

I can't afford croc seamless wholecuts. I really like the seamless boot and the spiral wholecut he made for me, but I'm still breaking them in. It was nice to be able to chat with him to get those two models made (Cataline and Tacticus). I probably wear the test boots (wholecut, single seam) most often.

Which tree would one use with his split toes? I tried ordering them under the out of stock page, but when I try adding trees, it tells me out of stock. Which links me back to the same page.

But when I check out the round last trees, they're in stock for my size..

Those seamless boot are gorgeous , maybe next time. Now seamless croc boot probably in my next life tongue.gif

Anyone tried ordering more than 2 pairs from the webstore at once?

 

I was informed by Antonio that he can't do more than 2 pairs in one shipping, but it seems possible to check out with more than 2 pairs and only be dinged by shipping once.

If you order three pairs or more it might be seen as a quantity discount.. :)

Bravo. Very nice.

AM 's becoming quite well known for this kind of thing...it's difficult, it's fraught with problems and uncertainty.

In this case, it's also very well done.
