    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    WRT Brooks Bros. Peal shoes, I've seen references to AS and C&J lasts. Is C&J Crockett & Jones? Who/what is AS?

    C&J = Crockett & Jones
    AS = Alfred Sargent

    Both firms make currently shoes for Brooks Brothers under the Peal label.

    Love the first two from right,what stores do carry Bontoni?What do you think the price range would be for these two?$1000?

    Wilkes Bashford in San Francisco and Bergdorf both carry Bontoni. Bergdorf has a very attractive double monk in stock. I find the finishes on Bontoni to be very exciting. They offer a bit more flair than a traditional brown and tan although they may not be for everyone, for sure.

    I bought this pair of Church shoes (I hope) not to long ago. I can't find any information on them like model or whether they are pre/post prada. I would like them to be pre prada but am not getting my hopes up to high. I think they have a classical look to them and I enjoy them. I am just starting to get a collection going and feel like this pair is a great addition. Comments? advice?

    I think each Wilkes I have visited carries Bontoni. SF, Palo Alto, and Carmel so far

    Some new models are up on the JLP website. www.johnlobb.com

    Creative but uninspired. Mostly mediocre.

    Another Parisian bespoke shoemaker: mego.fr

    new cleverley crocdile for JK - i must say that both the shoe and the finishing looks a bit behind the normal standard, very rustic[​IMG]


    Rustic? I dig the colour. The punched cap is too much, IMO.

    well a little slap dash with the finishing - i know they are handmade but still is not any reason to be over rustic looking!

    as for the color i much prefer the last crocodile one of his too, more to the point have you seen that the heel dont sit flat too? after the detailed deiscusion from last time i when an checked all my shoes both bespoke and RTW and the all site flat and some even the soles do too with the tress in

    Yes, but it isn't that bad than on some others posted around. [​IMG] Still strange on a Cleverley, IMO.

    Glad to hear you don't have sort of this issue.
