    I do not like austerity stitching and feel that plain monks are boring. I also do not like grained leather.

    HOWEVER, this is not austerity stitching!!! [​IMG]

    After a good three years lurking around here (thanks for all the free advice chaps!) I've finally registered in order to share my pleasure at picking up these beauties in the sale at John Rushton on Wimpole Street:

    Both pairs made by Alfred Sargent for overseas retailers, Shipton & Heneage, Paris, in the case of the chestnut semi-brogues, Regent of Japan for the antiqued tan wholecuts. Beautiful leather, outstanding quality all-round. The semi-brogues are on a narrower fitting than I normally go for but I'm letting them sit on a fairly wide set of shoe trees for a while to stretch them out - I'm sure they'll be fine.

    And the damage? A mere £95 each. Add the usual pleasure of a long shoe chat with Mr Rushton himself and you have a very successful afternoon. [​IMG]

    Jawohl, Herr SpooPoker!
    What about a calf-wool co-respondent?
