    ^^^^ Very nice! ^^^^^

    I particularly like the contrasts in leather texture.

    Gorgeous last shape. I agree with the comment above about the different textured leathers as well. I think I'd prefer laces personally, but those are very nice and unique.

    You FINALLY did it manz!

    You'll be a happy camper soon enough I'm sure.

    Nick is great, he'll make sure you're happy.



    Here's today's arrival for me. (Cross posted to the shoo pron theard)

    (Double click to enlarge - sorry I'm still not a very good porn photographer.)

    I sized down a half from my first pair and I'm even happier with the fit than I was on my first pair.

    Time for me to start contemplating which Decos I want. This may take some time.

    Must. Resist. Urge. To order. PLEASE LORD GIVE ME STRENGTH...oh who am I kidding, the lil' red guy with the pitch fork always wins over me in the end...sigh.

    Pretty nice example of how clients can take advantage of the MTO-program. wingtips, faux laces, material mix, extra punch line, it's hardly the same shoe as the original Byron.

    Thanks Shire! I'm very happy with them.

    The quality of the leather is super - soft buttery feel, deep rich dye saturation, and a very unwaxed finish. Exactly the same quality as another pair I bought last month. I believe they will both patina beautifully.

    Minor adjustments are permitted, as long as a pattern change isn't required.

    The small single punching brogueing along the balmoral line was accommodated because it did not cause a pattern change.

    The original Byron design had a different material on the upper to contrast with the lower...so this design worked within those parameters.

    Much less the short wing tip is imitation brogueing...so a new wing tip pattern was not needed.

    Overall, the design was in line with the Deco ranges minimalist aesthetics (with the exception of the imitation lacing).

    There was an upcharge to make these adjustments...but it helped that Tony liked the design :)

    Totally digging. How long do you think it will be before you wear them? I had the itch to try mine this past weekend, but just did not find the opportunity.
