The St James II looks fantastic in the square deco.Thinking of a St James either RTW or made to deco specs. Is it just the sole finishing or is there a difference in the clicking etc.?
I've asked and Dean said they can do it for an upcharge.The St James II looks fantastic in the square deco.
I'm fairly confident that a non-Deco shoe made on the deco last is just a normal RTW level of finishing/construction.
Nevertheless, I've got a few of each and it's still hard to tell the difference between a Deco shoe and a RTW made on the Deco last, other than the sole and the outer box (and sometimes the bags are nicer).
There is a difference between deco-lasted and full deco spec, but it's impossible to tell from above. The sole work is quite different, but both are stunning. Matter of personal taste, really.Thinking of a St James either RTW or made to deco specs. Is it just the sole finishing or is there a difference in the clicking etc.?

Everyone loves an Arran or a Thorpe (I would personally love to see a Thorpe in a zug leather). The world is also very loafer friendly these days so a loafer GMTO would probably be successful.Dear Readers / GG Friends,
It's great to be back here on Styleforum!
