    That is awesome news. Too bad I already got my Moore's. Guess I'll pay attention to AS offerings again.

    Looking for Oxblood or a deep burgundy. My preference would be for Keats or Henry.

    I'd also like the U throat to be suede, but I know that would be a reach for some.

    I'd also prefer to wait until the Blakes arrive so I can fully confirm sizing on the 48 last. But, you know, those were due in March, so...:brick:

    Is there any place in England - retail shops / factory shop - where it is possible to actually handle the AS higher grade shoes ( I am afraid I am not up to date with the differences/ nomenclature associated with Exclusive vs Handgrade etc) and try them on?

    Many Thanks

    Got the AS Charltons and Sanders bucks from AFPOS today. My other pair of AS are from BB Peal & Co (suede cap toe) so these are my first pair from the AS Exclusive range. Wow, I really like these! I definitely needed something more casual with a Dainte sole so I imagine these will be getting a lot of use with all the spring rain we're having. They fit great, I got 'em in the US in 2 days with free shipping, and Julian & Sarah even threw in a free tin of neutral Saphir wax. Thanks!

    So would pick those up if they were in my sizes. The orange shade would eventually develop a nice patina with wear... AS makes excellent country boots and I would put them very close to Tricker's in such category.

    Hooray!!

    Any special orders planned? Am enjoying the shell Miller boot we worked out last year.

    When is the restock on the Radwell Brown hatch grain in a 9.5 expected?

    Thanks!
