ah, the reason why i didn't want to spend money on a pair of 'intermediary' shoes was just because i'd feel like they'd be a waste of money. it'd be a single use shoe, basically. I've looked and looked and there's almost nothing that i can find in a last that i like.
i hear the allen edmonds...
Order a made-to-order shoe from one of the better brands like Edward Green, Gaziano & Girling, Alfred Sargent Handgrade etc with a crepe, commando, wibram or similar sole. These makers can produce nice dress boots fitted with rubber soles without taking the elegance away. Many other brands...
If you want to smell like someone in power then you don't want to smell much at all. People in power tend to want you to listen to what they are saying, not take notice of how good/bad they smell. Both the reaction "my, oh my, that guy smells good" or the opposite "what the hell is that guy...
Could somebody please tell me what last shape that last shoe was?
The last shoe (alligator) is a bespoke shoe. So not a ordinary last. I'd say that if I'd compare it to a ready-to-wear G&G last it's closest to TG73.

2. Start a blog.
3. Get in the long line of people who dreamed of making it...
Luk-cha, they're the Hanly. Launched in 2008 or 2009 I think?
I also found out that Gaziano & Girling is going to be sold at Hans Allde as well. They're having a clearance right now so G&G is not available there until next week from what I hear.
I am surprised to see that there is a market in Uppsala for 1000 Euro shoes. Even in Madrid only a few stores run shoes in that price range, and that in spite of the fact that
a- the number of rich people in Madrid is far above the number of rich "Uppsalabor" (unfortunately, also the number of...
... living in Gothenburg I know exactly what you mean (I'm hoping to move to Stockholm this winter by the way). Don't forget about the salt either, I doubt it's healthy for leather soles.
Personally I will use two pair of shoes with Dainite soles this winter, and one pair of shoes with...
