1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    As I have said in the topic dedicated to Delos, he is largely above Foster. And not only in terms of fitting. But in terms of fitting, Delos makes a glove, Foster makes a shoe which adds no value compared to RTW. I can even say that, to my feet, the Simpson last from Carmina or the 7000 from Lobb offer better fittings than my pair of Foster.

    That's a pretty dramatic statement. Fosters are held in high regard and at GBP2200 bespoke they should be.

    +1 I'd be interested to find out too. I can imagine somebody like Culverwood using them (taste/cost)

    Cleverley and Foster both make shoes for Will, and he's also had them made by G&G if I remember correctly (those might have been MTO...not quite sure.)

    I've admired Koji's work for years now. The lasts are as contoured as sculptures.
