    I like PCK, love? I dunno. RogerP has the advantage over me having seen them but there's something too contemporary about em for me. For that mula I may go another route ...

    Yeah, I've seen them in person at the Leffot store.

    I want another pair of St C, but I dont know what...too many damn options.

    Guess I'll just wait until the trunk show and let Philip Carr advise me....hahaha

    I prefer something more like this:
    http://the-shoe-aristocat.blogspot.com/2013/04/for-today-masaru-okuyama-creations.html

    I generally love the split toe styles - Just prefer something with the stitching further forward and with 4-5 eyelets.

    I've always loved the Alden NST (it was my first split toe love) but these are certainly much more elegant.

    It looks a lot better in person but I'm not a fan of NST styles so not a fan

    i like it. would probably prefer it in either a darker brown or a black pebble grain as PB mentioned. but, as others have said, for that kind of money, there are other shoes that are calling to me.

    I have shoes and have pics but have no home computer as it has fried itself and being repaired, so no pics until Monday.

    But the shoes are fantastic - exceeding even my high expectations. I have even learned to love the flimsy shoe box. :) okay, maybe not love.

    Chogall's are StC....you can tell just by the shoe tree.


    I like the 108's at Leffot..but I also agree a darker color would suit them better.

    And so my indecision continues...haha

    If you can attend an upcoming Trunk show, you can likely select a shoe from a much wider variety of styles than Leffot stocks and then pick your last, color and type of leather, etc. I suspect if you go to a trunk show - you will drop a lot of dough on StC...

    Maybe just wait for the Leffot trunk show next month and then pull the trigger.. Just don't bring too many bullets :)
