    I think this one has been discontinued (in this box-calf color, at least) but the medallion is available on two or three other derby/oxford models.

    We are getting that model in suede for Spring. I've always liked that design, wingtip derbys are difficult to execute well but that one has a nice dandy feel to it.

    Yes, glad to hear you're out in Hong Kong again. Stop by and we'll go get a drink afterwards, the guys wanted to catch up. O, and try the chelsea boots. I would say they are life-changing but I'm slightly biased.

    One more photo of Carmina's shoes.
    Single monk with a split toe in cordovan (it is reddish, #4 color?). How can I know what last they are on?

    The monks are the trickers factory shop shoes that have been doing the rounds. Wasn't really that impressed with the leather and the sole work was pretty sloppy. Good for the price though...

    As always, the McKays take the crown. These shoes are pretty much perfect.
