    The Budapester in Burgundy looks great. Looks as good as the U last version [​IMG]

    This re-inforces my decision to go with the U-cap for my next order. I wonder how they would look without the broguing though.... [​IMG]

    The middle pair, in scotch grain, are beautiful. I could also see getting the half boot version of that with Alden's commando soles.

    Beautiful shoes. Those wholecuts are gorgeous.

    On a sidenote, where did you get that rug? It's ubiquitous. I see it in department stores, office buildings, law firms, everywhere.

    I like the wholecut and the adelaide, but the budapester, for me, falls between two stools. A shoes like that doesn't want to be in a sleek last like the F.

    Andrew, have you ever bought a pair of shoes and found out that you already have a pair exactly like what you just got?

    Double damn!!![​IMG]

    My favorites are #3 and #5

    So, you're going to keep us waiting till the holidays for the rein deer skin bespokes![​IMG]

    BTW: Do you have a burgundy ostrich belt? It would look spectacular with your burgundy casual shoes ( think EG Dover or more casual).

    Any newly rich Russian oligarch, or African dictator can assemble a vast and very expensive collection of shoes. But I doubt many if any do it with the taste and knowledge that you display.

    Back to this weeks addition. As to #3, is Cognac Scotch Grain the same as peccary (Sp.) or very close in texture and feel.

    really like the burgundy F-last Budapester

    also like the Italian oxford style, not so much the color
