    The one and only Daisuke Yamashita just visited the St. C. workshop and shared some shots and lines on Facebook. It's in Japanese, but the Bing service on FB is fairly OK with translations. Yamashita-san's website has more pics from 10 years ago when he first visited. It's great to see the true Romanian talent behind these shoes that rock our world and feet. I hope they're treated and paid well as they do deserve it.

    If you were taking votes mine would be for the 633! I have also seen this model online which looks like a cross between the two. [​IMG] In my next order will be the model in that photo or the 633, in the pictured calf.
    Great looking ghillie @SoGent! I look forward to seeing pic of them out in the wild.

    I snapped this in the blaring Daylight Savings sunlight that was coming into my home last evening. These shoes are over a year old and appear black in all normal circumstances. Held up to the light they take on this characteristic, which I think is awesome and one of the reasons why I love Crispin's crust leathers. Makes black "interesting".

    A quick note to SC fans: LeatherFoot still has a few floor models left at reduced prices. This will be the last time there is a special like this because we are stocking up on purely trial pairs not for sale, and so floor models will be for display only. Some shoes are slightly creased, suede models are in perfect condition and are for sale at $1350 CAD ~ $1050 USD. Please DM me with any questions.

    I am considering a St. Crispin's Mod 108 in suede. I am a 41.5 in the Vass U last and a 8.5D in the AE 333 last (Harrison).

    Any advice on sizing? I am getting a sense that StC is TTS for the US size, yet I see advice that one should go down half a size.

    Saint C definitely does not use US sizing. Treat them as UK sizing.

    Breaking in my new shrunken calf boots. They're a bitch to get on, but foot feels okay once inside. I'm hoping for a little stretch.

    In that case I am usually UK7.5. And so I should be taking a 7.5F for the 108?

    Yes sir [​IMG] They don't feel quite as narrow as they look.

    Muchas Gracias RogerP. Problem is I have to leave the house very early and these guys take an extra 10 minutes to get on.

    St. Crispin run larger than typical UK shoes. I take an 11 in G&G but a 10.5 in St. Crispins.

    I am the same size as I am in Crocket & Jones as Sain Crispins. I have the same experience as Mr. Pink with G&G, I am a UK 9.5 in G&G, but a UK 9 in Saint Crispins.

    I have all of the same size on three different lasts and they all pretty much fit the same. My shell ones seem rommier, but that could be a function of the leather and the lasting process of such a material.

    I also use the same sizing guide as PB, and the classic and chisel last feels the same
