    I actually think the Polo Suede Shoes are available on the website anyway. Some arent available for 3 months but still on there for ordering.

    Except us folks that don't fit one of the listed sizes. Damnit.

    Look just look how evenly that sole has worn out. The beauty of bespoke shoes. On the other hand was it really necessary necessary to recraft these? it seems these had a lot of life left in them.

    I am size UK13E, so, everything must be oredered in my size.
    I know how you feel. Sometimes I get tired of seeing everything available in sizes 7-9!! Are men feet really that small?

    They are not anywhere near as good. As far as I know they don't handsew the resoles.

    There are still a few bespoke makers around the US that can do the same. But at a price.
