Here are some that I covet, none that I currently own: Barrett norvegese monk http://www.barrett.it/_pages/CAT/NG/sys/121024.jpg Campanile monk http://www11.plala.or.jp/kiki-mo...._01.jpg Lobb Varese buckled boot, in a country grain with heavy ridgeway sole. I would love to own this shoe just as shown here: http://webclub.kcom.ne.jp/ma/hohtsuk...s/DSCF0024.JPG It's interesting to note how dramatically different this shoe looks in black calf with a leather sole: http://www.jerrys-shoes.de/john_lobb/P8300133.jpg Lobb Chesland chelsea boot http://webclub.kcom.ne.jp/ma/hohtsuk...s/DSCF0029.JPG Mantellassi norvegese monk http://www.sutormantellassi.com/diapositive/10b.jpg Berluti wholecut http://crystal.cside21.com/shoe_photo/b_arn_01.JPG Another Berluti wholecut, with intense antiquing at the toe & a rubber sole http://crystal.cside21.com/shoe_photo/b04_01.jpg Roberto Ugolini monk 1 http://www.roberto-ugolini.com/modelli/pic7.jpg Â & monk 2 http://www.roberto-ugolini.com/modelli/pic8.html Also E. Green Banbury, Halifax & Olney boots, none of which I can locate a decent picture of at the moment, aside from the catalogue shots. I also like the Vass boot "flaunted" by Mr. Harris http://aharris.calinet.com/Vassulastchukka.jpg, as well as his featured Santoni wholecut http://aharris.calinet.com/Santoniwholecut4.jpg The Vass Alpine side-tying shoe in black pebble grain, which link I cannot seem to locate right now, is very cool looking. Add a J. M. Weston demi-chasse with a double sole in cognac for good measure.
