    The new Porters, don't look like the Claytons Spoo has. Is that the same leather? I might have missed it somewhere.

    which last is more elongated, the 101 or the 102? It is hard to see the difference between the 2, can the OP give an answer? also, what are the pirmary differences between the lasts?

    does anyone have any pics of themselves *wearing* the porter on their feet? need to see that before making a decision. thanks

    It is the same leather, just different lighting. I believe Spoo's are in direct sunlight IIRC.


    The 102 is slightly more elongated. I'm going to try to put together a pictorial reference sheet with lasts , leathers, etc. sometime soon.

    Will also get you an "action shot"

    are the 101 and 102 lasts as elongated as the C&J 348 last, cause the 348 is one good looking last and will be hard to beat. if so, then i am definitely interested in a pair.

    So here is something special that has been in the making for some time.

    Back when David first started the DC Lewis shoe line, he approached me for some preliminary feedback. As you can see by my subsequent purchases featured in this thread, I have been very pleased. Expectations were actually exceeded. That said, I wanted him to create me something special. David has had me test drive a pair of black calf double monks for a while now, seen below (please excuse the shitty photography) :

    ..and for me they are the perfect dub monk. Sleek lasted, extremely comfortable, and a fit that is really awesome. David can correct me if I am wrong, but I think these are the 102 last. I would compare it best to the Carmina Simpson, or the C&J 360.

    So after wearing these trial monks for a bit, I wanted to move on to something more....exotic. After back and forthing with David on some skin choices and layout, we decided on a semi-matte finish belly cut alligator. David sourced two identical skins and sent over some pictures. We both agreed the quality was that of the highest order and we proceeded to start our "bespoke" journey.

    Over the course of 6 (agonizing) months, David kept me updated with the process the whole way - how his shoe team was handling the skins, what the layout of the tiles would look like, the color of the buckles, the fiddleback sole, etc. It was a really easy process and I had say to tweak anything that needed to be tweaked along the way. At first, I was hesitant to drop a lot of money on a pair like this sight unseen without a test pair first, but I have full faith in David and I let him run with it.

    Needless to say, last week the end result finally appeared at my doorstep - and WOW. The quality of the skins is excellent, really along the lines of the best I have handled. The soles are just gorgeous. I really could not be happier with these. Anyhow, without further adieu, I present to you the custom SpooMonks by DC Lewis. Thank you David!!
