    You're right, I'll do that 2morrow from work if necessary. It feels initially sometimes like email is easier for everyone, I don't mind waiting a few days but clearly at some point you got worried it got lost. So thanks ...

    CHANGING PROPORTIONS

    Hello gentlemen,

    We hope you all had a most productive MTO ordering spree during the promotion. We have just received new samples at the store, so you can now see other make-ups, leathers we did not have before on display, such as the dark green, navy suede or deco black.

    Amongst the most interesting new samples we have received are two different strands that show two completely different ways of making the same shoe. This leads us to what we think can be a most interesting topic of debate: How altering the proportions of something can completely change its feel, formality, style or the way it is used. We’ll start with an example and see what your opinions are on the matter.

    On one side we’ve got the moderately classic DG70 last. It’s round, yet sharp and modern but subdued enough to not catch too much attention when paired with a business suit. On the other side, the Deco. Our most striking, svelte, elongated last, one that will surely get noticed and transmits urban elegance and refinement.

    The only difference, pattern-wise is the medallion on the toe. Every other disparity one might appreciate comes from the change in proportion. What do you think? How important are line and proportions for you when choosing a garment?

    MTO order placed week before last - deco-lasted variants of the four below: Mitchell (because I have 5 already and so why the fuq not? :lol:); Gable (with a straight cap a la the Caldwell); St James; Carnegie (my first monkstrap that I'm excited-yet-nervous as hell about!)

    Can't wait to see these and all the other MTOs on parade on this thread when they're finished! :lurk:
