    Looks good.

    All RTW G&G shoe trees these days are the same apart from the Deco. Unless you manage to lay your hands on some old trees when they were last specific just order your size and width.

    Burnhams in the wild. These boots are bloody terrific. If F width were more widely available in dealer stock, I would defiitely own more of this brand. [​IMG]

    ^^^ Awesome. And this strikes me as how it should be. The idea of taking my own measurements and / or doing my own tracings and mailing them in to a bespoke maker is something I find quite off-putting if only because of my known capacity for screwing things up.

    I will look forward to seeing the results!

    I agree, IMO that's not bespoke, it's a custom made last at best. Bespoke, to me, involves a measurement session by a craftsman and at least 1-2 fittings. The term bespoke has been depreciated greatly over the years as we all know. But I might be considered a snob by saying that, I dunno.


    Very basic, more or less a St.James in Oak. It might be the only bespoke shoes I ever commission (unless I get totally hooked on it of course) so I wanted something I could wear almost every day.
