Hi Everyone, just joined this Forum.. been looking around here as well the web and im keen to purchase a double monk strap shoe. In terms of style, thus far I tend to like the Williem from JL or the Ramsey from the AS exclusive range. I am looking a specific colour, well I would like to get that shoe in a specific colour (deep red / cherry colour - hard to describe) and I was wondering if one can get that as part of the AS exclusive range? or will that be classed the handgrade range which I understand to be more expensive? I learning towards AS as I think they would be relatively cheaper than JL.
I am open to any suggestions of other brands if anyone has any.
Also, does anyone know if AS factory is open to visit for a mini tour? I intend to visit northampton in a few months during the British GP, and I would like to visit some of the traditional English shoe makers and see how they ply their craft.
Thank you in advance
