    Cleav, yeah, bad light + camera phone; will try harder another day. Probably. And those Church's monks have been in the sock thread on many occasions!

    PB, although I do ascribe supernatural powers to you, I'm guessing that it just wasn't a good enough picture for even your eagle eye to pick out the only hand-welted shoes on show, and in fact you just know what Vass trees look like! Also, they're not even black! But oxblood is near enough for navy. :)

    A72, thanks - spectators are not loved by all around here, but I do enjoy my dandy shoes more often than most.

    Just pulling your leg on the shot Mimo, but you know that.

    Sorry about the Church's, I will go a searching.

    All good just the same :nodding:

    PS Like the rug btw

    Thanks! I've noticed you have a nice one, and I don't mean your syrup!

    The monks are called "Becket", an older line, only just post-Prada and now replaced. 173 last, and really peachy leather - I'm not sure how the later models compare.

    :rotflmao: Good that you're around mate, very good. I do remember those beauties now, how could I forget. Modern day Church's don't do it like those anymore... I too have a button back sofa, they can leave an indentation or two on bare flesh so not sure how comfortable your young lady is! Comfort being the key of course...

    Just thought I'd drop these here, since SF is near-devoid of Anthony Cleverley. Just got these today from Leather Soul. It's the Finchley in burgundy. I'm very happy with how the shoes turned out, it's my first foray into AC territory. Of all the RTW shoes I've seen, I'd say this is the neatest make, rivalled only by EG TD.

    Yeah...those are nice. My first time of seeing pretty decent shots of the Cleverley RTW

    Sorry, no...FWIW, cuban and military heels are "hollow ground."

    I thought it was simply called a pitched heel, no?

    Probably right. I would have called it a tapered heel...nothing fancy (sometimes a heel like that happens more or less accidentally), but "pitched" is close enough for gov'mnt work.

    For a cuban or military heel you need a tool like this:

    For a result like this:

    Wow, how does that tool do that? If it's too long winded, don't worry DWFII.

    Fascinating, thanks.

    When am I not long winded? :nodding:

    Do you know what a spoke shave is? How it works? This is called a "heel shave" Works on the same principle as a spoke shave, except the blade is curved to make a concave cut into the surface of the heel.
