    Kasper, for me it depends on the model. I can't get the Mackay to fit me because when I walk it digs painfully into my toes. I think, as with any shoe, it's a question of finding a last and a size and a model that fits your foot properly. In my case, this is a tall task. Of course, in a quality shoe, the leather is also going to be of a very fine quality, so supple, fine-grain leather is going to be more comfortable than stiff leather.

    ZJ,

    That's a good point, I didn't even know what a last was until two weeks ago.

    zjpj83, that is a beautiful pair of shoes. Are they in dark oak or some other shade?

    Interesting. I actually think I like the RLPL better. I'm not really one for blind stitching on shoes.

    The photo shows a pair of very nice looking shoes, I grant.

    But that rug... a Pak-Bokhara! How could such elegant shoes be shown on top of such inelegant and ugly rug!

    Good God- what are THOSE?

    And, more importantly, what are they on?

    The look like Tony G.s bespoke take on the Dover. That would be my bet, anyway.

    I was more concerned about the gingham thing. Table cloth or trad monstrosity?

    And baiting Bill as usual...

    It's Friday. We usually have him apoplectic by 1PM.

    They are Bremer's take on the infamous Dover. I'm on a suede kick of late.

    The shoe bags are of his choosing.

    How does suede hold up over the long term? My guess is that these won't take 3 resolings and 15 years of wear?
