    wow, when people post pics of their collections I always find a few questionable choices (including mine, in retrospect), but yours is absolutely perfect

    I always feel better about myself (and my purchases) when I see people posting their shoe collection.

    Out of curiosity, has any one pair garnered more compliments than the others?

    Thank you!



    Perhaps the Oakhams and the Canterburys are the ones I've got most compliments for, but three of the shoes are so new I haven't worn them so much yet (the midnight decos, AC Bodie and the Shannons)

    How does the AC Bodie compare with the Deco range in terms of sleekness, finish, and quality? I know it's a splitting hair difference but if you (or others) can tease out that difference, marginal though it might be, it'd be appreciated!

    Great collection Claes. Did notice that the St James didn't look that red, is it the picture or do vintage cherry get darker with time?

    Thanks!
    Thanks Frank! I think it is more the picture, I took it with my cell phone so the colours are a bit off. They are a lot redder IRL
    The Canterburys are on a dainite sole, the shannons are on a double leather though
    Thank you Stitchy!

    Reminds me of the time when I was in DC and tried to buy a Marcella bow-tie at Brooks Brothers and was told that all the Marcella bow ties were sold out because there was some white tie party and according to the sales man they had the stuff for years and it didn't move, and in a matter of two days, everything was sold.
