    ^ They're at least underrated in my closet as I only have 1 pair as of now. I plan on getting 1 or 2 from AS. This Autumn Brown seems like the perfect shade of not too dark and not too light. Great for most any type of wear from slacks to jeans.

    let's put it in greg's words: we'll hug it out... ...and we are not in a hurry.

    now enjoy your AS experience.

    you wish

    450 British pounds = 656.41500 U.S. dollars at the current exchange rate. But i think that was the intro offer when Chay was here showing AS Shoes off at the NY Trunk Show.

    I think those who got in on that offer got a great deal. Slewfoot, will you be getting lasted trees if that last works out for you?

    ^ I thought about lasted shoe trees, but I doubt I'll do it. At least not for now. First I'll see if a Woodlore model fits them well enough. I suspect something will. I'm not thinking extravagance with this last. It's more practicality and comfort with a sharp look.

    Look forward to seeing the 1st pair you get made with that last.

    Back to AS: Groover and Chay's pics are great, as is the AS blog, but when will we get to peep the complete new lineup and available options? [​IMG]

    D-

    I'm thinking the whole lasted shoe tree is a little overblown. That said, I have a pair of U last trees that get 24 hours in whatever shoe I take off in the evening - and they make every shoe look bettter.

    ^ Funny you say that as I use my U last trees to stretch and form some of my other shoes and it works like a charm.

    Moral of the story is, the U last rocks.

    Thanks Wes, we are trying to get the new site up within a couple of weeks with all the details of both new ranges, AS Handgrade and AS Exclusive. Along with new Premier and Country pictures a bit clearer than on the current site.

    Best, Chay.

    Any idea where I can see AS Handgrade in person in London?

    The AS factory? You may want to send Chay Cooper a message. He's more than accommodating.
