I left with 2 pairs which felt weird in the beginning as there was plenty of space up front for my toes. But you get used to the size & understand how comfortable they are. From then on everything I buy is 10c or 10,5c. Has made a big difference for me. Modified last may seem strange at first but it really grows on you. Here in Europe apart from Anatomica, browns fashion in the UK have some Modified last models & Fransboone just brought his first one in brown calf.

I prefer cigar with olive tones. My newer cigars are nice but don't have the shade I'm looking for.

nephew,
thank you

Plain Toe Boot in Kudu
Barrie Last
Brass Agatine and Hooks
Light Antique Reverse All Around Welt
Commando Sole
Light Antique Edge

Retail Price: 575.00
 
Example Images:

 
Similar eyelets, plain toe design and sole to this:
 
AppleMark

But with the oiled kudu leather upper from the famous 404 kudu Indy boot below (ignore the top-stitch):

 

D4603C
 
5 Eye DeRosa Norwegian Front Blucher Oxford
Milk Shake Suede
Barrie Last
Brass Agatine Eyelet
Reverse all Around Welt- Natural
Light Antique Edge Color
Commando Sole

Example Images:

This shoe is very similar if you ignore the material, color and grain of the upper as well as the eyelet color. The design of the upper as well as the sole will be the same (Norwegian top stitch, commando sole) while the top stitch will be white:

 

 

The color of the suede will be quite close to this and the brass eyelets will be the same:

 

 

D4706C
 
Stoneman Chukka in Brown Alpine Grain
Barrie Last 
Commando Sole
 
Retail Price: 570.00
 
Example Images:
 
This boot will be similar to the chukka design with commando sole presently available from us (ignore the shell cordovan upper):
 

 

The leather of the upper will be similar to this brown alpine grain all weather walker, also presently available from us:

 

 

Please reach out if you have any questions. You are welcome to reply to this email or reach me at (415) 468-1178.

Many thanks, gentlemen, for your continued business.

Best regards,
 

Adam

 

 

As the email is for anyone who asks to be on the list—ie nothing exclusive for special customers—I hope it's ok to put this up. If not, someone let me know and I'll take it down.

 

Unionmade has some great makeups. They tend to make them look more rugged, with all-around welts and commando soles, but they got some great ones like the two-tone medallion cap toe (Alt Wien, basically) on flex sole.

) have said the plaza is spectacular with boots but just okay with shoes.  Anyone else have an opinion?  Does anyone here own the J Gilbert version?

Thanks in advance...

nephew,
hands down Aberdeen over plaza

I have Aberdeen and Plaza shoes and boots. Comparatively speaking, I strongly prefer Plaza for boots and Aberdeen for shoes.
