    Hello, what size would you recommend in AS? Size down 1/2 step or a full step from my US size? In particular, I'm interested in either Armfield or Hunt.

    My US size is an 8 regular fit (Guess around EU 41 - 41.5). I wear the Allen Edmonds Fifth Street in an 8, also Alden in an 8

    Shall I go with UK7.5 or UK 7.

    And how different it is between Mahogany and Antique Cherry?

    Thanks.

    We think probably a UK 7F in AS Hunt & AS Armfield as these are both on the AS109 last, and perhaps UK7.5F in the AS Ramsey on the AS99 last - sizing is very much in line with C&J.

    To be sure, send us your feet measurements by PM and we will check for you.

    I feel that whiskey shell goes great with more casual styles. The Culford or Havant in whiskey shell would be my suggestion.

    What would be the price estimate for a group MTO?

    The AS Ramsey in Whisky Horween Cordovan will be £490 per pair inc. free international shipping - Chay Cooper from Alfred Sargent mentions that they only use the best.

    So, if you can decide on one style and 6 people agree, we can then confirm size and organise invoices - when all invoices are paid we can place the order for your shoes and approx 16 weeks you will have your AS shoes made to exacting standards in Horween Whisky Cordovan.

    May be interested but want to clarify if the £490 quote for Whiskey Ramsey includes VAT or not. I assume specifications will be that of the Exclusive range? I own numerous Horween Whiskey and it is a stunning leather.

    Of course, £490 inc. VAT & free international shipping (£408.33 using NOVAT code in checkout). They will be full AS Exclusive specification including closed channeled oak bark tanned soles, fully leather lined and look amazing.

    Here is the link for you http://www.afinepairofshoes.co.uk/products/alfred-sargent-exclusive-ramsey-whiskey-cordovan-mto

    We have decided that a 50% deposit should be taken when choosing your size, which is fully refundable until six orders have been placed. Once the six orders have been reached, the deposit becomes non-refundable and the order is placed directly with AS and production starts. We will notify you as soon as the six orders have been received.

    This price is keen in order to start this MTO 6 Pairs minimum program, so hopefully other shoes or boots can be made up in this way.

    Any questions, please advise, and either Sarah or myself will do our utmost to look after you.
