    Sutor Mantelassi uses a very similar toe, and there's an English maker that has a similar model to the last boot, but I can't think of the name at the moment

    yeah pretty sure you're thinking of G&G.

    btw lol at the SZ guys thinking channeled sole meant it was glued not stitched...

    Theory? If you like Theory, you may as well just go and die.

    Seriously, if you like Theory, you should be into Filippa K and Acne. It's like Theory, but instead of being for boring Americans who sort of like fashion, but don't really, it's for Scandanavians who want to look "nice". The difference? The average Scandanavian is a lot better looking than the average American. That makes a world of difference.

    Corthay Arcas are known for their beaked shapes, I'd also check out Vass U last.

    Just a word of warning on the U-last. It's extremely narrow and elongated. The Sutor Mantellassi (get 'em while they last, because the company is now defunct) lasts are much more comfortable for most people, myself included.

    I don't wear the U last (prefer the rounder F). I love the pair of Sutors I have though, too bad about the closure. I'll check what Lance got in stock...

    Arcas are also quite narrow.

    From a tailored point of view, Bamford & Sons and Viktor & Rolf come to mind

    Two brands I often see and honestly kind of overlook. But I will definitely check them out. Thanks.

    I tend to wear a lot of Epaulet, WvG, and RRL but have wanted to mix in some of what LA Guy called the OC look with pieces I already have. Have also been interested in some of the "goth wear" and DBSS. What would be some suggestions that could blend those all together.

    The Arcas are beautiful, does anyone make a boot with that toe on a cuban heel?

    Sounds like a thread derail. This isn't 'tell me some brands for my ill-defined style'.
    But last year's Woolrich Woolen Mills stuff, the ones Daiki did.

    Lance is good. Ian (shopthefinest) probably has a larger selection.

    No more pretty blue soles? Sadness.

    Japanese edition:

    If you like Wings+Horns, try Heath
    If you like Dior Homme, try Sise
    If you like Band of Outsiders, try Industrial Category.

    Let's try to get more suggestions. There are hundreds of good labels in the world that we don't talk about here. Jet?
