well done i-gents
Put my order in for the Miller.
We are at 2 with possibly three more pending.
Here is a post I threw over to Ask Andy that has some pics to suggest what we were thinking
Some folks have been working up a special order for an Alfred Sargent Exclusive Balmoral boot through A Fine Pair of Shoes.
Here are the details
Dark Cognac Shell/Walnut Pebble grain shaft
Austere wingtip. No brogueing anywhere on the boot.
Here is the order link
You can read up on the order and the process. We have two orders in and three more possibly on the way. We need a total of six to start production.
Color should be close to this G&G Wigmore in a style reminiscent of the EG Shannon V
The price point is great for a shell boot. If you haven't seen the AS Exclusive line, they do a nice job.
Gdot, you can be número seis
+1. So jazzed
I went with a 9.5F as I am a true 10D
16 weeks cannot go by fast enough...I will not longer be a shell virgin
4 months so October at the latest. Perfect bal boot weather. Our timing couldn't have been better
Can I take the credit for planting the pebble idea?
Will get my order in tomorrow after my crazy morning rush.
Chay would have been proud!
its yers. I love that our boot wasnt an exact copy of another boot already in existence. Itll be a totally unique boot and I can only imagine how great it'll look. Its like waiting for baby! (never had a baby)
Personally I think it brings a nice combination of the pebble inspiration of your G&G Wigmore and the more recent wingtip patterns of AS' balmoral boot.
Also, regarding the 'shaft' term:
I think it is also called 'quarter' in other descriptions
Well, I am going to enjoy telling women that I have a pebble-grained shaft on my bals
Update - Order count so far for the AS Miller boot is 3 and AS Benson is 2
I want that boot!!
