joeninety,

 

I won't be around tomorrow morning but if you ask for either Gerry or George that would be great. Shop opens at 10.00.

 

Best,

Nice thread. You guys have a brown plain toe Derby boot RTW (in a grain leather) in the shop at the moment. Could you post pics and a price. I did remark to Gerry that it is very handsome. I think this is the right time of year for WSF to show it off. J

Jamaican,

 

Pictures of the derby boot below. It is the Crendon, new for this winter in walnut on the 6184 last in a G fitting. We really like it, it's very versatile and would look great for those informal winter occasions. It costs £485, please let us know if you need any more information.

Lovely. Now as to sizes. Any big sizes, like 11 or 11.5 UK? Is it only available in a G width? J

Jamaican

 

We currently have a size 11G but not an 11.5G in stock. At present we only stock them in a G width- we manufactured them in the wider width to accommodate thicker winter socks.

Help us with our new models - Made to Order options

 

Gentlemen,

 

We’ve had our new rtw shoes available for a little while now and will be introducing an adelaide, a double monk and a spectator shortly (I’ve actually ordered a pair of spectators myself to wear at Goodwood next year, but that’s a different story). The feedback that we got on our new lasts has been taken on board and we are looking to refine the chisel-toe last a little so that it more closely resembles the Chaves (picture below).

 

The Chaves semi-brogue

 

We respect your opinions and we want to seek your views on the design of the new Cambridge shoe that we introduce. There are clearly a number of options in terms of inspiration, patterns, toes shapes (we're not hung up on chisel v. round), colour(s), covered elastics and so on, so we thought it might be useful to have a look at a few.

 

Some pictures from our archive:

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v80), quality = 90

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v80), quality = 90

 

 

We think it would work best in brown, perhaps with our fading and new Fox medallion, what do you think?

 

Fox Medallion

 

We would like to make the one that you think is best as a special MTO at our normal price of £665 including VAT (no MTO upcharge, fading not included), with a view to adding it to our normal rtw line. We would need 10 orders to do this.

 

Any feedback would be much appreciated, we hope to be able to make the best suggestion up as a sample.

Guys,

 

Poor old bespoke shoemaking company could really do with your input here.

I'm personally a huge fan of chisel toe and if you have anything similar to the Chaves in RTW I would jump on it (saw the Fallway when in London but unfortunately did not appeal to me as toe was too round)

As for the side gusset models...not my cup of tea
