^^^ Much better picture!
I believe what you're seeing there is the untreated flesh of the leather. After a thorough polishing it should be more concealed.
To rebel222 and distinctive:
I thought that you guys might appreciate this: http://the-shoe-snob.blogspot.com/2012/01/2012-year-made-in-moniker-loses-its.html
All the best with your line, I wish the brand much success. Always good to see other individuals who truly care about good shoes....
Very kind of you Justin, thanks for helping get the word out!
Lovely polishing jobs, btw.
I am torn, I definitely want the word out on these great shoes, but then again I don't want to lose the great customer service as you expand.
Just received my navy Porters in the 102 last last night (was on vacation).
They look stunning. Definitely more of a midnight than a "navy", but they look fantastic.
Initial fit, much more snug than my C&J 348 (7.5E). Similar to how my AE PAs (No. 5 last) were before break-in, as blasphemous as comparing these to a pair of AEs is!
But I won't be able to wear them for a few months. It's snowy, slushy and very salty here
Big thumbs up to David - top notch guy, very responsive with inquiries throughout the process.
Buy with confidence here guys. Terrific quality shoes at a great price, with excellent customer service to boot.
this shoes are great, however this pic, with the flap of leather used to cover the top part bothers me. there has to be a better way than this, this way just looks like patch work. any suggestions for improvement? possibly just using a typical inside out folded seam like the rest of the back would be best.
^ good catch
Yes, agreed. This is a purely functional piece and discreetly hidden under the trousers. I have told the factory to use the "dog ear" method of construction from now on and was put into affect on the Porters:
The service will not be lost, I assure you
Thanks for the kind words! I think you will find that the 102 breaks in quite nicely after the second wear or so to mold to your feet and be very comfortable.
consider overshoes- tingley
Are you planing to add any boots to your offerings? Bals or Chelseas?
Perhaps in the future...stay tuned.
