    No pictures at the moment, but the AS Milton in Dark Blue Calf will be fantastic with almost black burnishing on the toe - they will be very special indeed.

    Sizing for the 48 & 53 lasts will be the same as for the 109 last you have in the AS Armfield.

    OK folks, here is your chance for AS MILTON MTO. Very nice dark navy calf.
    A lot of you asked for it and it is time to step-up to the plate. Great shoes with a chance to order size, fit and some nice options. By the way, lasted shoe trees are included with the Milton.

    2 orders confirmed, need minimum 4 more to start production, more is better.

    Half way there now, just need 3 more gentlemen to order to reach the 6. Here are the details and pictures for you.

    AS EXCLUSIVE SPECIFICATION MILTON. This is a stunning wholecut shoe with medallion toe, normally reserved for Handgrade customers of AS Only.

    We have secured the very unique opportunity of using a handgrade style for this MTO programme.

    The shoes will be made in spectacular dark blue burnished calf leather on a choice of two handgrade lasts. Last 48 or Last 53. In addition we will also be able to offer customers a choice of 3 widths, E (slim), F (regular) or G (wide).

    The price is £490 inc VAT (£408.33 ex VAT) - these are £795 inc VAT in Handgrade specification.

    As a special thank you for SF's continued support, on this MTO programme only, AS have offered a free pair of lasted shoe trees with your order!


    Place your order by size and once the deposit is received, we will email you regarding your exact requirements including your choice of last shape and width. You will be able to add your name inside the shoes at no extra charge. Metal Toe Taps can be added to your shoes for an extra charge.

    Those Miltons look superb. Has anyone thought about an Austerity Brogue, in calf, year round color?

    That Milton looks great, love all the extra goodies.

    Miller boot- did our boot have a wingtip? Or medallion?

    I have.

    I didn't want to start it b/c I didn't want to commit the funds right now, but if someone else did, I'd have no choice.

    Here is the AS Blake.

    Personally, I'd be looking for calf in a mid-dark brown on the 48 last. Prefer something darker like Oak.

    Calf should bring the price down a bit compared to shell, which other than the Miltons seem to the favorite choice for MTO.

    Wingtip looks great. Really hoping the MTO crew went with a wingtip
