    Lovely shoes. I saw that Will of ASW did a shoe like this but on the GG06 round last, (and of course there was the Foster shoe that inspired Will's.) Why did you go for EG as opposed to GG? J

    Well, I wasn't planning on keeping these, but once they arrived I may have changed my mind: No, they aren't Vass, but I had an extra pair of trees. They are a perfect fit. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Maybe its the rugged style but Trickers always look well made and finished IMHO.

    +1. I really like those.

    J very nice, you are a man with simular taste in shoes as me balmorals and adelaides

    Agreed! [​IMG]

    Several of my MTOs have been influenced by your bespoke creations [​IMG]


    Lovely shoes. I saw that Will of ASW did a shoe like this but on the GG06 round last, (and of course there was the Foster shoe that inspired Will's.) Why did you go for EG as opposed to GG? J

    I do recall Will's 'City Shoe', but this was back in the days before G&G reduced the length of their toe caps. Had it been based on the same proportions as the Warwick, I have no doubt that I would have been tempted.

    I like both makers equally and I guess I just decided to place this one with Green. I have no doubt that I would have been equally satisfied with a modified Warwick.


    jjl5000, not nice. [​IMG]

    Ahh come on... In time I know you could grow to like them [​IMG]

    I've often wondered why Grenson didn't trim the sole waists closer with the MP line.
