    Just an update :) pics wont follow as I was sadly informed my Handgrade make up wont be forthcoming seems like AS were too busy doing other things and forgot/mislaid/couldn't be bothered blah blah blah !! Looks like my pennies will be spent elsewhere !!! Such a shame as my other Handgrades were top notch !! Looks like Chay leaving didn't do me any favours !! I would be interested to learn if anyone has received Handgrade MTO's recently (not group exclusive to handgrade last orders) ???

    Have you seen this pair of shoes, made for AS for Herring Shoes?

    They might not be in quite the same colour scheme as the one that you wanted, but in terms of the design it certainly seems to fit the bill, and they do look lovely.

    They were part of the reasoning behind my MTO make up as Chay had advised me they were bringing in some "lovely pin grain" and we discussed a semi brogue Dark Oak Calf & Pin Grain make up and I subsequently placed the order. I'll eventually get them just wont have the AS name on it.

    so much awesome here. this may have been asked before but why leave the top eyelet instead of a speedhook

    Thanks guys. Both pairs have worn well. I should take pics.

    R, the top is an eyelet so that if it's laced up to the top, there's a lower chance of the lace being knocked off the hook. I think it was fairly common.
