    Are the shoes in pic 9 in size 12 from the Masterpiece line? If anyone has seen them, what's the word on the way they look in person. I think they might be the Aberdeen Feathermaster but I'm not sure. Thanks gents. http://benniesshoes.com/grenson12.htm

    I know Bennie's says all shoes are from the Masterpiece line, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Some clearly are not from that line. Best bet is to call and ask if the shoe you want has the smooth, channelled sole (no visible stitching).

    When I ordered my chukkas Chris freely admitted that they were not Masterpiece. I think the contention has been that the leather soled shoes are Masterpiece, others likely are not.

    Chris will be open on this issue and it's obviously best to ask. Looking at the stitching on the welt in comparison with the true dress shoes (which are Masterpiece), these may not be from the Masterpiece line. If you haven't talked to Chris previously, he seems to "perk up" when you tell him that you're a forum member.

    Thanks gents, but Chris informed me that there is nothing in my size. Oh well, better luck next time I guess. Too bad, I love the Stowe model.
