    I believe what you're seeing there is the untreated flesh of the leather. After a thorough polishing it should be more concealed.

    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.

    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.

    Gentleman, I will be placing a new order very soon. Unfortunately, all of the limited MTO slots are filled but I will be offering the following models as "pre-orders". As an incentive to those who would like to pay in full up front, I will be offering a beautiful pair of lasted shoe trees and free shipping (discounted shipping for international orders). All models will come standard with the fiddleback waist. The price for all of the following models will be $459.99. Please send all requests to [email protected] Porter, 101, Navy:
