    ^ If this guy wore shoes, these are what he'd be sportin' . . .

    My favorite Pebble Grain Wingtips. Again, not your "every day" grain, but this'll certainly keep you regular.

    Meister...thank you for your kind words of appreciation

    Fritzl said it well...double monks are the ugliest out there

    I love this monk and am glad I stayed away from the Goyser stitching

    Meister, in case you were wondering, I have a black calf wing tip version of this same monk...and its the most comfortable monk I own. Its not aesthetically pleasing to your tastes...but IMO, these shoes rock [​IMG]


    Fair enough...just a comment on the shape ...nuttin' poisonal...that's you and that's beautiful.[​IMG]

    Hai Guys. Got a new camera and though I would take some pictures of the new kicks. Also snapped some pictures of older shoes, but thought I would include those in here as well! What else is one to do with a new camera than take photos to upload on teh StyleForvm. So a package arrived, and inside were these beautiful bags... [​IMG] But inside the bags... [​IMG] [​IMG] Seamless! [​IMG] [​IMG] And a fit pic. [​IMG] And on to the other pr0n... [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Compared with my older pics I am pretty pleased! [​IMG]

    Excellent photography & excellent shoes. I really like these, a classic style. That toe and top stitch is beautifully done. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Nope they are just a really crazy color of green. They are made by Happy Socks. I got them as part of a 2-pack of green socks on joyofsocks.com. The other green color is more of a hunter green.

    The photo was taken with my iPhone but the color is pretty true-to-life.

    Thanks isshinryu, I really like yours as well. I have been debating buying a more 'Italianate' shoe for a while, particularly one with norvegese stitching, and those shoes that you have are kind of what I have been looking for. I will keep the thread updated on my quest!

    Some nice shoes you got! [​IMG]

    Thank you! Not bad for a 23 year old eh? (I have been collecting since I was ~18 or so).

    nice score, wear them in good health

    Thanks fritzl, I am proud to finally own a pair of shoes that are fritzl approved. This is my first foray into the A-H shoe 'world,' and I have to say, I prefer these to pretty much any shoe that I own. They just have so much charm... a word I never thought I would use to describe a shoe! They just feel handmade, if that makes any sense. Like someone actually spent time crafting them. I look forward to visiting Austria (I hope) this summer, and possibly visiting some other shoemakers of the A-H ilk.

    you're welcome.

    i'm really glad for you, that you took the chance to discover, what i've been talking about ever since.

    when you have your travel dates available, please let me know, probably we can have a drink, if you don't mind.

    Combination of several factors really. Working for a clothing company throughout college and getting free clothes, having zero expenses and college scholarships / law school scholarships, and working since I was fourteen. Everyone has their hobbies. Really, as long as one waits and rewards themselves every once in a while, the damage is not terrible! Also, I was fortunate enough to score those Vass from B&S and the G&G's from Edwards of Machester during the 'low pound' period a year and a bit ago. The G&G's were ~<800 if I am not mistaken with trees! And my folks / lady friends have known what to get me for birthdays / christmases / graduations for quite some time!
