    Guys. Can I confirm what's the approximate pricing for the MTO handgrades again? How do you get to choose the color if you're doing this online?
    640 GBP for the handgrades - they're all MTO but may be an upcharge depending on the modifications u want. re: colours - sites like Pediwear and Skyvalet also have pics to look at

    Thanks man.

    Anyone know how the 48 might compare in shape to the 104?
    Trying to stick to the exclusive line for now, so I don't think that 48 last would be available.

    the 48 in the bottom pic is a 'soft-square', but to my eye there's very little difference between the 48 and 104; IMHO the Wilson's look great

    I do love them all, but, have those employees been paid yet?

    What is this about?

    The cap doesn't seem as offensive as the southwold.

    Now that I've made the switch to imgur, I have some older pics I need to post. Here are a couple pairs of Handgrades, boots in 48 last and shoes in 87: [​IMG] [​IMG] Here with some AS slip-ons made to the premier standard, both on the 99 last: [​IMG] [​IMG] I ordered another, higher boot w/ a cap toe, but I'm waiting until I see Chay and the new lasts in person to decide on a few details. Sad he canceled the SF leg of his upcoming trip. Anyone going to see him in NYC (at Leffots I think) next week?

    Love the colour and general look of those winged medallions - are you going to go with the latest version of the AS beveled waist? I like the look of it for a super sleek oxford

    Thanks. For the boots, I'm thinking Dainite soles, but I agree it'd look great on an oxford.

    Thanks LC. They're "berry."

    No worries, Chay, but I do look forward to seeing you. Lucky guys in NYC.

    Nice! What last are those on? The chisel or soft square? Guessing the former, but they look softer in some photos.

    The soft square but next to my chiseled lasts they look awfully similar [​IMG]

    Did you request a black welt with a natural sole edge? It looks a bit odd IMO.
