    I suppose there isn't a munificent millionaire around here who wants to give me a pair of these for my birthday:

    Mr. Pink, thank you sir for the style number. Do you have any experience with SC cap toe balmorals, and do you believe the extra cost of hand-welting justifies their high price over similarly styled shoes?

    I have two pairs of their captor balmorals. Intend to get more. I pretty much settled on only buying from them from this point forward. I don't think the slight extra cost only has to do with the hand welting, but to me the extra attention they give to each customer and the quality all around justifies the price paid.

    Thanks :) Personal for sure....

    Nothing really comes close in my shoe collection. St. C have been a revelation for me, quite honestly.

    I fear the Saint Crispin's Thread is becoming way too much like the Alden thread.
