    what would it be? The reason I ask is I have just received a Ladbroke with Southwold toe and medallion(pictures to follow) and I thought in six months time if I can afford another pair,what would they be? I know there are 1001 options but my mind is blank.

    They are Dark Oak,I asked for heavily antiqued but they dont seem any more antiqued than others I have in Dark Oak.Having said that I am still very happy with them.

    It doesn't show up that well on dark brown in general. I did an amateur job on a pair of dark brown monkstraps that I have and you can tell, but only in bright sunlight. Go with the lighter browns (or burgundy) if you want to show-off the antiquing.

    That Kiton was exactly in my mind when I tried to replicate the same effect with Edwardian and burnt pine.

    The first of the two kitons will be mine one day [​IMG] They're definitely in my top 5 for sheer beauty.

    Seems like one should not consider doing mtm until one has a clear idea of ones own style and look. I would suggest spending more time shoe shopping at Nordstrum, Saks, NM, Barneys, etc before even thinking of mtm or bespoke.

    $1240 w/ tax and 20% surcharge included from Saks, NYC. That does not include shoe trees. Proces from others including Sky Valet, Jay Kos and LeatherSole may vary.

    As long as everyone understands that this is not an EG MTO shoe, it's EG bespoke and will run upwards of $3000.
