    Some pairs from the recent trip to Barcelona. Nothing crazy, just some essentials:

    What line of Santoni are the shoes on the middle shelf. I really like the the double monks and the shoes to their left, but I am unfamiliar with the quality. Goodyear Welt? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    In London today, so picked up my Greshams kopped during the sale a few weeks back. Wore them out the door and headed straight to Cleverley. Amazingly, they still had a few Anthony Cleverleys on sale in my size, was tempted by a 3-eyelet derby but passed. I'm really, really digging the Greshams... may have to double dip in another color.

    btw, also spent 4 hours at the AS factory with Chay. Will post pictorial on the AS thread....

    Greshams are great [​IMG] My favorite is Dark Oak for them though.

    LR,

    Those double monks are indeed Goodyear constructed, on sale at the time for €380. The ones to the left are probably Blake construction.

    ^ you're missing out. At least you could give a dark brown or dark burgundy a shot with navy and grey. I'm thinking you may become addicted.

    I have a pair of black Corthay wingtips that have a touch of burgundy in them and that is a bit much for me. Many friends tell me I am missing out on the brown thing, but I just feel that black shoes look cleaner and more "striking". I have nothing against them and I appreciate them when I see them, but to me I think almost anything, in particular suit-wise looks better with black shoes. Maybe I am just afraid that it will become yet another addiction...[​IMG]

    +1. I have to go to NYC to try on to see which lasts work best. Well, of course, I don't go there just for the shoes.

    Hi, first time poster long time lurker here. I've just received my pair of Bally Made-to-Measure Scribe shoes last week and am posting their pictures here.

    I know Bally (at least the regular line) doesn't get much love from this forum but I'm a big fan of their styling.

    For this particular pair, I love the way they were painted. Also, compared to the RTW Scribe that I have, they seem MUCH lighter. Almost like walking around with cardboard shoes. Still, they feel very solid. I'm really happy with my purchase.

    I have been in the market for a new pair of clunky bluchers. I wasn't really looking for these, but when brand new C&J Peals come up on eBay for $30, I can't refuse: [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    For that kind of money, you can paint the house in C&J

    $30? I've gotten a couple peals on the bay for around $150 but that is just ridiculous.
