Here is my latest pair of shoes, made on my soft chisel-toe last. This pair is in a navy blue calfskin, which I purchased some years ago in Northampton, England. The style is an austerity brogue. The shoes feature a beveled waist, but not a fiddleback sole. Just to try it, I did a mirror-polished sole after staining the soles a matching dark blue. I also did the sole edges in dark blue, rather than the standard black.
I am pretty pleased with the way these turned out, although, as always, there are things that could be better — my pattern was a bit off, the tip of the wing-cap is perhaps too far forward, and my stitching was a bit wonky at points, as my sewing machine needed a bit of adjustment.
Still, not too shabby, if I do say so myself.
