    it is a metal toe tap that lies flat with the leather sole, not placed on top of it. looks nicer, and is more comfortable to walk on. :)

    oh, oops, lol. i guess each maker uses a different style tap, so they look different than yours.

    i think they use the same style, but i guess its slightly different depending on the toe shape/size.

    Looks awesome, the St. James is one of my favorite models.



    Anyone can actually do those, it's a MTO option (and a surcharge of course).

    Contacted Nick to start the process of getting my Wigmore boots. Not a bad first shoe from G&G! Sadly it will take about 3 months to make. This fall will be spectacular: G&G Wigmore (hopefully), AS whiskey shell Ramsey, AS cognac shell Miller, Alden whiskey shell LWB, Alden whiskey shell wing tip boot, and Alden ravello shell Day Tripper.

    Yeah, I think I should be good for the next decade... :slayer:

    I'm not the biggest fan of boots, but the wigmore are absolutely fantastic. Great choice!

    That's a shoe orgy there.

    I luvz my Alden whiskey LWB.

    Kinda heavy on the light colors? No?

    Not that I don't really like light colored shell.

    Do you already have the AS shell shoes in hand or are they on order? I am very impressed with the one pair of AS Exclusives that I own - would be very interested in seeing how well they work in shell.

    And lastly - you indeed will not NEED any more shell shoes for more than a decade. But in my experience need has little to do with it.
