    Some Meermin are hand welted as well. Point is hand welted shoes are available across a broad spectrum of rtw price points. You don't have to go to a St C price point to get hand welted construction.

    As for St. C versus AC - the main benefits of the former are hand welted construction and far greater ease of customization, including last adjustments. Both make stunningly beautiful shoes. My AC burgundy Adelaides and my St. C medium brown chukkas are probably tied for my two fave pairs of shoes.

    Are these Anthony Cleverley? Or the regular George Cleverley RTW line?

    How much are the shoes on sale? Called the store and was informed the sale price for AC line was still right about £900

    These are regular CJ handgrade, most of them are 325 now from 525.
    You are right, most AC are 900 but there are last pairs at 600.

    I don’t think the regular GC line is C&J handgrade level. I think they’re closer to bench grade +.

    The finishing and leather on handgrade C&J looks better.

    And now, for something slightly different from shoe-porn, DISCUSS.

    Feel free to take it in any direction (last, styling, comfort, durability, value, etc).

    1. Vass Budapester F last in Bordeaux Museum Calf
    2. Edward Green Chelsea 202C Last in Black
    3. Anthony Cleverley Bodie in Black
    4. Gaziano & Girling Rothschild DG 70 Last in Vintage Oak

    A top-down angle would be swell!

    Judging by these, the Cleverley last seems to have the most aggressive curves and defined toe shape. I like it best of these four.

    @VRaivio

    Re: Cleverley. I’m sure @shooman on the other forum would agree with you ..... LOL

    Can you elaborate on how Anthony Cleverley curves differ from (or are better than) G&G which is equally somewhat aggressive to my eyes?

    The G&G lasts I find very aggressive and the DG70 is as far as I would go.

    Have a look at your 2nd photo. See how strongly the leather is lasted around the ball of the foot? How roundly it turns to the sides? How sharp the angles are around the toe? That’s it. I have a pair from G&G on their DG70-last...it is a disappointment as far as curves go.

    I agree with you to a large degree on the DG70. When I went out looking for a dress Full Brogue, I was steered toward the Rothschild in DG70 as the best dress Brogue out there. It is nice but not magnificent. I’ve looked at the full range of GG lasts and can’t quite get myself to cross the line on anything else they have on offer.

    Regarding AC, I must say it is a work of art. I found it initially too sharp a last but once on the foot, it is a delight to observe especially so on a simple minimalist design. I’m not so sure about the other “busy” designs line the Churchill. Too much going on alongside a quite aggressive last.

    The leather is also notably more supple that anything I’ve encountered RTW.

    I think the AC should be reserved for very simple cap toes and maybe a plain whole cut formal shoe.
