Is there any function to the shorter apron, or is it just a matter of styling?

Noo-Noo, your shoes seem so nice. I'll toast to your health if I ever find myself in London.

 What beautiful leathers are you using on both NST?.

According to the instagram feed, the second pair (with the norwegian welt) is a natural, vegetable tanned wild deerskin.

Fantastic, thanks.

Mine is a vintage pebble grain from Annonay.

Crivens, been too busy to even check in here until now. NYC and Boston have been fantastic, now I'm sat in the departures at Logan waiting to see what San Fransisco brings.

Been travelling with Steed Tailors for the last few days, first time combining trunk shows with someone and its been great to have some company.

Here is 'voxsartoria' a day or two ago, trying on a pair of oxfords by Nicholas Templeman:

I believe, he is also expecting a fitting by Foster &Son in a week or so.

I'd love to be fly on the wall to see whether Nicholas or Jon Spencer (Foster's lastmaker) got the better fit for him.
But then, vox might not be able to feel any significant differences.

That would have been a fun comparison. He's missing F&S on this trip though, so we'll have to wait six months to hear his thoughts.

I think my and @dopey's Norwegians can be see in the back of that photo. Excited to try my shoes on tomorrow.

Now that's a shame. Foster are due in Boston on 19th/20th of April.

So last week's fitting would have still been vivid in vox's memory, helping the comparison. But in six months, lots of water will have flown down the Thames and the Charles River. (Thanks google, I had no idea which river flows through Boston.)

Agree, it's a shame. Hopefully we'll get a Fosters + Templeman comparison once both are done though.

Not sure if this is redundant, since I already ordered a pair of Norwegians, but I really like @dopey's shoes and am thinking about getting something that's between that and JM Weston's Chasse.

I've always liked the Chasse, but like @Grammaton Cleric, suspect it might not be very versatile. Wondering if I can get something like it, but just a touch less aggressive from Nicholas. Maybe a less prominent Norwegian stitch and only a double -- rather than triple -- leather sole.

Other option is to get a pair of casual boots, but I don't have a good idea of what I want them to look like.

Jon already bested me in the dance off, I really could do with a win here.

Had my fitting with Nicholas this afternoon, in San Francisco.

 


It's like wearing gloves, only for your feet. These are norwegians but not split-toe and have no back seam, either. Nicholas will tweak a couple of things but they already feel pretty great. Trying on shoes that have no sole or heel is strange, but it was possible to feel how the shoe would fit, I think. It was a most interesting experience.

 

Edited to correct over-zealous autocorrection.
