    Congrats on purchase. Where did you buy and how much did they set you back? Love the suede boots.

    Those carmina are from thearmoury.com. Look at the top of this page for its affiliate thread. Their customer service is phenomenal.

    My newest damage. Just arrived this morning. Courtesy of Will at ASW.

    Has anyone ever sent a pair of shoes back to Church's for resoling?

    Yes, several times.

    Very good service.

    The shoes are re-lasted.
    Soles/Heels/Welts removed and if necessary the insoles.
    Any remedial work to the uppers carried out

    Re-welted, soled and heeled. Re-finished and returned to you.

    Yup, about $560 CDN shipped. Service so far is great.

    When I see that pic of those shoes, I think of them like those McDonald's happy meal toys "I gotta collect them all!!!"

    I'll post pics when they arrive.

    My small-timer rotation of keepers (I have a few others not pictured): [​IMG] Any suggestions for my next 3 shoes? I'm hoping to get down a solid rotation of 7, and then take it easy. My thoughts: - Something in #8 Shell. Longwings, maybe. - Something in Black Calf. Have PAs, but need an upgrade. Maybe JL Philip II, or is that wasteful for a black shoe?

    ^^nice collection so far. I'd go for a #8/Burgundy PTB on the Barrie Last and a Monk strap (single or double) in a cognac or brown color. Also a pair of shell loafers would be nice.

    IMHO, the cost of a JL Philip II (which is priced as a "Prestige" model) in black would be the textbook definition of "wasteful" unless you think you would derive incredible psychic satisfaction from owning them. The G&G Cambridge with the right toe choice will give you a very similar shoe for roughly 1/3 less, without a meaningful decrease in quality.

    I would probably add a wholecut, an adelaide, and perhaps a chukka.

    My hopes was to try to find them "on the cheap". I remember seeing a pair a year or two ago and I'm kicking myself now for not picking them up when I had a chance. I will definitely look in to the G&G. I was also thinking a Vass or Carmina could be nice. Even still, it all feels wasteful to me for a black shoe.

    They definitely are. Those are unmistakable. And they are size 10.5D, apparently.

    Correct! Love the shoes, don't love the bit of tightness on my right foot. Certainly livable though.
