    Not quite, these are my first pair of Vass circa 2007 via Tokyo.

    PG, lovely shoes ... shoes are indeed for wearing. Maybe I should post a pic of my rained-on shell PTBs I am wearing today.

    Stefano Branchini boots bought from Venice, Italy during the Easter weekend.

    I like those.

    I got these very cheap from E-bay, 92 pounds including new cedar shoe trees and shipping to Sweden.

    They are Alfred Sargent Dulwich, from the classic collection (rubber heel and not fully leather lined). I can't feel the difference in suede quality between these and the AS Thin Red Line suede brogues though, it looks to be exactly the same:

    Real steal - the suede models in the Classic Collection are nice shoes - they seem to use the same quality suede on classic and premier shoes.

    Picked up two pairs of new dark brown shoes in the last month. Borrelli by Sutor in dark brown and my must have shoe that I've been eyeing since I joined SF - the EG Asquith in Dark Oak.
    Both very nice - the Asquith is truly beautiful though/
    My new Bally Scribe Aken in tan (have them in black too but haven't gotten around to taking pics of them yet). Both the leather the construction are fantastic. I could not be happier with them.


    I've not experimented with Bally but they look good.

    When I joined this forum I realy disliked the look of shell - I'm now at the point where posts like these have me saying 'need shell' [​IMG]

    Don't know if you would call these shoe porn, but a new delivery came today. Loake 1880 line Knightsbridge model in Black calf.


    Look good to my eyes.

    I agree. The only shell I've seen in real life is from C&J, but they don't come in these lovely colours, only burgundy or black. I would love a pair of wingtips in whiskey.
