I visited Tony and Dean in SF and marvelled at the samples on display. Particularly impressive were the channeled soles, fiddleback waists, and the elegant smaller heels all at a price equivalent to comparable RTW shoes I own which do not possess the same features. I ordered the Rothschild in Rosewood and the Connaught in Vintage Rioja. Both on the Mitchell- TG73 last (classic square). Trees were extra. My decision to order 2 pairs MTO instead of bespoke taking into consideration what I currently wear in my rotation and my budget. To complete my year's shoe purchase, I would like a monk, probably the RLPL Grant.
