    Yup, some of the AS for Herring has all the details, but some of the others (like the Charles) does not.

    All of them are still great models, just not ones I need right now. 2015 is the year of boots and loafers for me :D

    Same. Been trying to justify it to myself, but really should be checking out boots. Anything take your fancy at present?

    Herrings are going to restock with some great boots. I love the Moriarty.

    Nothing specific from AS. I thought about picking up a Cambridge from AFPOS, but decided I probably won't wear it as often as I'd like. Loafer wise, I don't think I look that great in loafers, but have recognized that I probably need a pair or two for the Spring and Summer. I might go through Meermin, just because I can't quite justify $400~$500 for a seasonal shoe at the moment. I do like the AFPOS collection Jaime loafer, though.

    They are pretty cool. I like the peak detail. If I decide to get a pair of black balmorals, I might have to consider these. The Milkshake and Pine is a funky color. I like the Holmes II, as well.

    I wanted to get them, but I have something similar. Looks like they are sold out through AFPOS anyway. Helps reaffirm the decision!

    Pediwear has a pretty good sale on now (click through the banner ad to support SF).

    What are thoughts on Moore in Cherry? I would like a good pair of solid brown shoes for CBD. I have lots of blacks, then more brogues, monks, and wingtips all in brown. I was thinking of CJ Hallam or a standard Carmina brown cap. Hard to find the AS Armfield or similar in Mahogany. Cherry seems a bit bright for the office (to me). I am NOT in London FWIW.

    I have a pair. I work in NYC. They are a little loud, but not overly so. They are one of my favorite pairs. Beautiful shoes.



    Haha yeah, I've been eyeing those, but my size has been out of stock for months. Suede on 724 is pretty interesting.

    They aren't going to carry AS anymore, so they won't be restocked unfortunately. :(

    If you talk to Sarah and Julian @ AFPoS, even they don't have your size up on the web, maybe they have ways of obtaining them for you. In the past, this has been possible but you should ask if it is still the same now.

    Cherry Moores are a beautiful shoe and I constantly get compliments when I wear them.

    Anyone experienced with the Exeter loafer? How do they run size-wise? For reference, I usually take an 8.5UK in AS lasts (99, 109).

    Nice, I like the color. It's interesting to see the difference between shades of what different shoemakers call snuff.

    Thanks - yeah, I know plus there's a number of different shades - sand, mushroom, snuff, tobacco, polo, chocolate and I'm sure I've missed a few in there as well!

    Those suede Cambridge boots are really nice. I am really tempted.
