Guys, very, very good question.

 

From our point of view it's a balance between accessibility and exclusivity. As we mentioned in our last post many of our bespoke customers are heavily involved in the design process and are very clear about what they want. They would be extremely unhappy - quite rightly - if we were to then offer their design ideas to a broader audience when they've made such a big investment in exclusivity (some of the designs that customers commission are breathtakingly beautiful btw).

 

However, in the case of the Thomas, the design is already in the public domain and we believe in making these 'public' designs available to a broader constituency for precisely the reasons you have outlined in your post. That's not to say that we will get traction for all of our suggestions, more that we want to offer the opportunity to the community.

 

Hope this answers your question.

Completely understandable.  That explain my reluctance in voicing out my thoughts.

One of the great things about the fading process is you can have more or less, it's your call. Many thanks for the input.

jssdc,

I can't say for sure but I suspect the heel is not as tall as it looks, the way the waist is bevelled sometimes accentuates the heel height. Take your point entirely about heels though and will factor this in.

I saw Eustace's shoe in the flesh and the heel did have more lift than my pairs of wsf bespoke shoes. J

Man, you're killing us with all these deals. What's the price and last for both monks? And  I presume the suede one is snuff?

barky, the monks are on the 337 last and the suede one is snuff (I have it myself and it's lovely). The price is £372 including VAT and £310 ex VAT (for members outside the EU). Delivery is £50 worldwide, £25 within the EU. I'll make sure to add both ex VAT and inc VAT prices to all shoes.
