I'm not sure about the whole process or if he even makes the shoes by himself. I'm slowly finding out. I'll definitely post any info or updates here.

Yes please keep us updated. Sounds very interesting at that price point.

Too much antiquing on No. 2, but the shape is nice. Like it best of the three.

I'm finding heavy antiquing less and less attractive.

I just chalked it up to the lighting/flash & labeled them NSFW

Yes, yes, and yes.

I like the first two. The third one not so much. On second thought, maybe the tips of the shoes in the second picture are a bit dark.

I'd rank it 2-1-3 in terms of preference. Do you have a link to the maker so others can see what he offers?

No - last shape looks very strange, although it could be the photo
No - needs no explanation
Maybe - hard to tell from the photograph, but probably no. I prefer a plain toe derby.

I'm with chorse123 on this one. Except that I'd say no to the 3rd one too - that medallion is a bit overwhelming

+1, Way too much antiquing. I never liked heavy antiquing, it's like buying new clothes with frayed edges.

In answer to your question , yes i make the shoes myself . I have worked in the shoe trade for 30 years, and for the last 8 years i have also been making my own shoes mainly by word of mouth.
My shoes are not factory made and each pair of my shoes are made by me.

Best regards
Cliff

The antiquing is terrible. But then, I think antiquing generally is.

no, yes, yes (ok).

It's weird, but I like 1 and 3 the most. I would buy #3 before any of them.

Even EG's more subtle efforts? I've always thought the caricatured Kiton style was tacky, and many of the Lobb finishes are too out there for me, but I traditionally have liked some of the more restrained antiquing. I don't mind, say, antiqued dark oak. But I have to admit that the pair I own with the best patina came entirely unantiqued.

The only style shoe I feel that I really need is a conservative black captoe. I'm just hesitant to make a special order for a shoe style that I can buy anywhere.

Does anyone know if a balmoral boot would require a "boot last" or if it would be made on a shoe last.
