    Just thought I'd share some pictures:
    - Nice..
    - Please post in a few months after wearing as I 'd be interested in how they age as to date.

    Great looking shoes!

    I am not familiar with Corthay. What is the price range for their oxfords?


    At Leffot in Manhatten they run about 1,100.00 plus trees.

    More Corthay eye candy...

    Wait, you smell that?
    Beautiful color.

    How come Corthay doesn't do a bevelled waist?


    very, very nice. corthays definitely on my short list.

    I was wondering the same thing about the bevelled waist and fiddleback sole. Not that they aren't great as is, but I always think it's a nice touch to have both.

    The antiqueing job on those shoes are a marvel to behold

    The design of the shoe...part stitching and part brogueing is hideously Parisian...yuck [​IMG]

    These are beautiful.

    I could quibble that some of the detailing isn't quite to my personal aesthetic taste, but overall, these are just stunningly beautiful! [​IMG]

    Congratulations & wear them well!


    You hit on what I was thinking. Still gorgeous.

    They are indeed the KlÃ[​IMG]ber. The patina that was applied is called "vieux noir". I actually saw them before the process. They were uniformly light brown. I think the work StÃ[​IMG]phane did is amazing. Styling may not be to everyones taste, but I think they are quite restrained for Corthays. I am curious as well how they will age...
