    Thanks. Haven't been wearing them much yet (just tried) but I'd say they fit TTS. I have Moore (adelaides) with same last in the same size and they fit pretty much similar.


    Cheers! I think the color is called Sienna (brown).


    The model name is Radwell (as mentioned above) and got them from A Fine Pair of Shoes. Check more details from their website.

    And thanks for all the comments, I'm definitely happy with what I got.

    Just got my new pair of Hunts in mahogany from AFPOS. They fit really well, but I think there's a slight issue with the heel on the left shoe--there's some irregularity with the sole/heel and the shoe rocks back and forth on the vertical axis about .5 cm. Waiting to hear back from the folks over AFPOS.

    Here're some pictures--excuse the poor quality.[​IMG]

    Hunts look excellent. Can you elaborate on the heel rocking that you mentioned? Never had this happen to any of my AS. [​IMG]

    Nice Hunts emiristol. I have them myself and have never regretted buying them.

    Agreed those Hunts look nice! I've been eyeing them up for a while although have a couple of this style in my rotation. Does anyone have photos of the Ramsey please after a couple of years wear?

    I'm not sure if others have already posted this, but Gilt has some Exclusive range offerings at good prices. I picked up some Hannover boots for $350. I've been wanting this pair for sometime.

    Aw, man! I would have gotten those boots too if they had my size. Looks like they still have some Charltons left if anyone wants 'em. I'm really liking my pair that I got a couple of weeks ago from AFPOS.

    What size are you? I ordered 7.5UK. I am wearing another AS pair on the 87 last (Dulwich) in 8UK today and they're a bit big (I wear thicker socks and a Pedag full length insole with them), so I'm hoping the 7.5UK will work in the Hannover. 7.5UK will be a whole size down from my US size. The Charltons are a great looking shoe as well! I don't understand though why they are $100 more than the Hannover. I think the retail was or is the same on both.

    I think the Exclusive line has not been out for that long (less than 2 years); however, from what I have seen the uppers have held up pretty well.

    There isn't any visible defect on the heel and sole, but it's slightly imbalanced. I think it's got something to do with the shape of the outsole or something. It's not very noticeable unless I stand straight up, but when I do, it causes a non-trivial amount of discomfort The folks at AFPOS said such imbalances are rare, but that they do occur, but that they usually go away within a few weeks of wearing them, so we'll see what happens.

    I have four pairs, all about one year old. All look great.
