These are probably the most boring MTO you will see, but they are for my wedding so...
Details: Black Freudenberg Calf, Maroon lining, Olfe Last, sunken toe taps. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

The Olfe last has a beautiful waist

Couldn't be happier with the toe taps

Couldn't resist

For t
hose wanting a comparison, this is the Carmina Robert last on the left and Olfe on the right. They are very similar in shape and size. The Olfe comes a bit higher up on the heel which is a good thing for me.

Looking good, Jason!

PSA - Drakes new season is out. Have a squizz at the ties on their site... some exquisite, some bad, some just plain WTF???!!!

It's funny - the name Drake's on the label is no guarantee of tastefulness.

 

Nice shoes, Jason! Exactly right for the wedding.

Yeah, nice shoes Jas. They look great!

Thanks Guys I haven't worn them yet apart from trying on, but the fit seems to be spot on. Rob I've found the Robert last a bit looser in the heel but otherwise fairly similar. FWIW, they just sent me inner and outer measurements which I compared with my Carmina's. They are both 9UK.

Re the Drakes stuff, I always find there stuff generally very nice with a few horror shows thrown in. Prob always gonna happen when you have to come up with a few hundred designs every 6 months. Their new look book floating around tumblr is pretty fantastic though.

These sunken toe taps were done in the manufacturing process and I don't know of anyone in Australia that does them. I usually just get my cobbler to put metal ones on for me. They are on no way as good as the sunken ones but much better than nothing.

how much extra $$$ do they charge for the MTO options?
post #17121 of 52334
It's now a 100 Euro upcharge, previously 50 when I ordered. They are probably trying to slow down the orders somewhat. Being honest, the extra 50 Euro upcharge puts you in OTR Carmina territory which i'd prob take first, they seem to have a lot more wearable OTR designs than Meermin does at the LM level. At Linea Meastro level they all seem to be the New Ray last which is very very narrow and pointy.

Gotta love the days when it pisses with rain the second you walk out the door in the morning and when you look up from your desk at 9.01am the sun is out.

Nice! How's the fit? A little difficult to tell on my monitor but are those plain toed oxfords?

Gentlemen,
Returning from Europe we stopped in Dubai for the night, picked up a pair of To Boot New York by Adam Derrick they were brogues in the cognac. Where do they sit on the grand scheme of quality?
Being in a sartorial hibernation, l have only recently discovered PJ Johnson Tailors. What am l looking to pay for a suit. They are indeed a revelation!

The AFR has their Fashion special in the magazine today and mentions a place called Lord Coconut any Melbournians familiar with it? And if so worth adding to a must see list when visiting?

Lord Coconut is located in an office building in Flinders Lane, near Elizabeth St. I recently had a brief peek from the outside - it was closed at the time (being a Monday). Looks like he some quite interesting and quirky vintage style 'stuff' (technical term) for blokes. I plan on returning for a proper browse. Lord Cocunut is coincidentally on the same floor as Watchtrader, which recently relocated there.
