    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.

    Those wholecuts are nice. Bally Scribes are the most underrated shoes posted on SF. They are as good as EG and better CJ or Aldens.

    Anyone ever seen these anywhere online?

    Stemar Moreschi Limited Edition Punched Derby (AFAICR)

    [​IMG]

    Absolutely stunning up close and personal in the shoe department of Brown Thomas in Dublin; poor quality iPhone shot doesn't do it justice. A gorgeous mixture of red and yellow. But, they're not 962 euros gorgeous, which is how much BT is charging for them.

    Have tried the Moreschi site and Ebay and some other sites but no sign of these. Any pointers or suitable substitutes appreciated.

    ^ If I am not mistaken SF member MalfordofLondon has had some experience with Stemar.

    Don't think I ever posted these on here: MTO Edward Green Oundle in Edwardian on the 888 last. I specified light antiquing and burnishing with metal toe taps and a 1.5 sole tapering to a single. I like the way they turned out the in-real-life color is a touch more tan. The middle photo probably gives off the best impression of the actual color. They've been a pain (no pun intended) to break in which is odd since I have two other shoes in this style (suede Oundles and black Grants). They finally seem to be getting there after numerous days around the house. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I like everything about the Oundle. I like saying Oundle. I wish I could use it more.

    Thanks! Try using the word somewhere in mid-sentence in a business meeting this week. I promise you won't get any funny looks.

    Congrats, David. The Oundle is one of the most fetching monks, IMO. I like how you left the toe plain as well... such clean lines.

    I'm not a fan of shoes with buckles but if I were to get one it would be those. Congrats!

    *ahem* So lets talk about sales for the 2nd quarter. Id like to see more Oundle in your delivery. You can definitely Connaught some more cash if you just Oundle a bit more.

    Oundles are plain toe usually
