Welcome and good luck on the new venture!
We need moar Simpson lasted offerings!!
Totally agree. Simpson!! It doesn't get nearly the spotlight it should.
Simpson split toe derby's been on my mind for my next MTO haha...wait was it you who planted this idea in my head with snuff suede??
Thank you Viral!
Finamore shirts now in stock!

EG Cappelli Unlined Grenadine Tie (9cm)
Definitely not me. On my list of things I seldom consider are both split toe and derby. But I did recently see a Carmina split toe single monk in the shoe p0rn thread that made me drool a little.
My idea was the snuff suede (or brown suede to switch it up) single monk. Armoury offers it on the Armoury last for an absurd amount plus shipping and Skoak doesn't carry many sizes and won't be re-stocking unfortuantely. It's so lovely and I want it! Both of them had the snuff suede. If you were to mix it up and go with brown, that'd be legit.

This in Simpson, brown suede.
Also, those shirts look amazing. Unfortunately, paying $500 for shoes is already laughing in the face of what my budget used to be. Those shirts are something I can only andmire and wish for.
That armory suede shoe looks fantastic. I would rock that
Navy Shell MTO that came in a few weeks back, courtesy of GentlemensFootwear.com. Navy shell captoe, dark brown edge trim, flat welt, single leather sole, brown lining.
As I've mentioned before, the entire transaction went flawlessly and Young was a pleasure to work with. Thanks again!
Give me the rest of this month to recover financially (I'm also part of the NPC for July) and lets force Steve to make another MTO. Would you rock it in a darker suede? Same suede as the string loafer for this MTO?
ETA: Here is Skoak's Rain version. They're really close but I like the Armourys a little more. Not sure what you'd call it but the piece of leather that actually has the strap, how it extends forward a little bit. Sells it even more for me.
My wish list!
Black Lizard but in a single monk similar to the pic below it
Carmina Country Calf Derby
+1 for the two eye derby ptb.
It caught my eye on skoak's website when I was going through their carmina makeups. It's simple and elegant.
that derby is awesome! anyone know what the upcharge is for the lizard? that black lizard monk would be pretty sweet as well
I see a new MTO forming here! 2 eyelet derby?? looks sweet! If we can get 6, in the next week or two, im pretty sure we can squeeze it in for the fall delivery!
Is there a firm deadline for the navy shell loafers? Also, wanted to get your guys' opinion on something: to what extent do you guys think it would be possible to lighten the navy shell over time with some diligent polishing/waxing? I'm not talking anything drastic, or anything that would happen overnight, but for a pair of loafers I'd love to "control" the aging a bit (if I can) and direct it to the lighter end. I think I recall seeing some contrast photos from some guys who did that (one went dark, one light) to a pair of EGs posted on the Leather Soul site and the difference was pretty dramatic (and awesome, they both looked great).
ETA: how many so far?
If the navy shell is from horween, it will lighten over time simply by wearing. At least the pair that I own have.
That was my understanding too!
Currently we have 2 confirmed and 3 awaiting confirmation! (one more to seal the deal!) They will be shipped free along with your choice of either abbeyhorn shoe horn or saphir renovateur cream as a gift! We need to order by next week at the latest btw.
