Good for you! StC FTMFW. Design on the Saint Crispin's? I vote for seamless 'Simply' devil.gif

Still deciding, but 'Simply' is simply too rich for me smile.gif

True, I see that you posted a picture of the Austerity brogue in burgundy. I have that pair on the Classic last, if you need more photo to make a decision send me a PM smile.gif

Adding on to that, StC's russian reindeer double monk is a beauty that you might consider too.

The finalists:

580A - probably in a darker brown




108 in green or other colour eg a red/ burgundy



505 in a darker brown, can't quite decide on the combination


any thoughts?

Double monks are best with a captoe.

Noted, although I like my JL Nasebys. I think for 'clunkier' last/sole combos a captoe has it's attractions whilst sleeker shoes also work without a captoe. My dilemma is choosing leather combos - I'd go for a darker brown grain for the front and heel, but am not sure about the mid section.

I think the first option looks good, although I'm not really feeling the curvy line running along the side of the shoe. 3rd option is good too, ever considered Russian reindeer skin? Personally I would go with a double monk without a captoe. I think a stretched (almost wholecut) like leather is easier to shine because of the shallower pores, and also the crease that you would eventually get from Saint Crispin's shoe should form a 'captoe' like effect anyway. I own a pair of black wholecuts and enjoy the captoe effect created by the crease.

Cheers. I wouldn't be averse to Russian reindeer from the aesthetic point of view, but with regards to cost, it'd be a 'no'. I went a bit overboard winning both the 'Edward Green shoe auction' as well as the 'Tiberias' suit auction, and going for non-standard options would just pile on the costs. I'm leaning towards the first one at the moment, I have a pair of Certos that look similar to number two, though much less refined of course. I like three but can't figure out the combination part.

I believe the Russian reindeer that Saint Crispin uses is actually a new kind (not the one from the sunken ship) and I believe the price point is the same ~1,600 USD or so. You should check with Thomas Park and report back though.

Thanks for the suggestion. Do you know if St C do pigskin please; pictures of the leather are certainly intriguing. And thanks ezlau, I've emailed Will of Leathersoul regarding the new/cheap/ nonsunken reindeer.

This is the 'reindeer' on the shaft of this boot. Looks nice.

Okay 505 double monks in faux reindeer.




These are tchoy's, classic last.

Any other factors to consider? Last/ sole/ taps/ nails? LOL
Trees are extra. Should I go cheapo and get the solid trees for 150 or go for broke with the hollow trees for 250?
