Hi Frank, No, that is true! I have been abscent for quite some time now, but you know, life is like waves... How about this style for the summer. It is made as a Bespoke shoe obviously, but the style is classic... Uploaded with ImageShack.us

Jan Petter, These are beautiful. Many here won't appreciate them simply because they are Ostrich (and full quill ostrich at that...perish the thought) but as a still learning shoemaker I see them more as shoes than as wardrobe additions. I like them. And knowing ostrich, I know that they are supple and soft...to a degree unequaled by any other leather known to man.

JP:

Those monks are very nice.

The ostrich ones are quite interesting. That is one banana-shaped last! I assume the client had an unusual foot(?).
The toe looks really long -- does this client also have very long toes, or did he specify an extended toe? Looks like it is way more than 2 sizes past where I should expect his big toe to end.

Hope you'll be posting more often.

Hi Guys,
The Double Buckled Monks are made in a thin Italian Calf Leather, with a little loose pigmentation, which means it gets slightly transparent over time. Not as durable compared to standard chrome, but beautiful.

Gentlemen,
Here is two other styles, rather flashy, but classic after all. Previously, some one made a comment about the banana shape on the Ostrich pair. That is the whole point with Bespoke, the lastmaker makes the last according to the shape of the foot.

Until next time
