    Did a few searches but couldn't find many threads about Santalum.

    I have a really nice pair of black service boots from them, and a second pair of trench boots in brown on order, but was wondering if anybody had any experience ordering Oxfords from them? Images are very hard to come by.

    The Santalum people sent me the following two sample images:

    The top pair features some unsightly loose grain around the tongue, but having handled their boots I have total faith in the quality of their recent work.

    This post makes them look really boxy, but then again the photography could be to blame.

    If any other users could contribute their own experiences/images that would be great!

    When I Google there are lots of photos of their shoes, the vast majority are very chunky as per your sample picture. Could be ok for casual shoes for jeans or chinos but really don't look up to the job of businesswear or above.

    Do you mean their shoes specifically, or boots? I could only find maybe 4 sets of images of shoes. I wanted this pair for a wedding in November
