    This pair is #8. Cleverley does some finishing to the shell so it looks different than standard #8. Same for a pair that they made for me out of #4.

    They're just hard to photograph perhaps due to similarity in color to the welt

    Crosspost from the Japanese thread.

    Had a fitting for my second pair from Marquess the other day. Was quite pleased with the fit, but Shoji wanted to improve it further. He changed the last a bit and made another pair of fitting shoes express, and had a second fitting yesterday. It will be slightly further improved.

    First, I was going for a full brogue. But because of my slightly wide forefoot it's difficult to get a semi slim front, so I changed to an imitation brogue to avoid the double layer under the wing.

    I think Shoji executes a wonderful imitation brogue (and full brogue, half brogue, quarter brogue and plain cap toe for that matter), and look forward to see the result in a few months time.

    Toe width marked in cut up shoes. Basically my three middle toes are about the same length.

    Pinky hit the side slightly too much, so the last was widened a bit on the right shoe, and lengthened slightly to keep the line.

    All you shoemakers and super-bespeakers, I have a question:

    A knee high boot for hunting, offering hard wear and protection, but with maximum breathability. What would you suggest? Light leather like kangaroo? A canvas shaft?

    Perhaps this is like asking for a waterproof dress sandal, but I'm sure your hive mind can muster some innovative solution: I name this The SF Safari Field Boot.
