    Your opinion is and contributions are always well respected, friend!

    May I ask why you believe the quality of shoe leather has declined over the decades. My cobbler and I have talked for quite some time, expousing various theories. It's great to hear from someone who has worked with shoes for so long. I'd be fascinated to hear your perspective, as one who has MADE shoes for quite some time. You have obviously handled the various raw leathers through the years, what's your take?

    I figure everyone needs a black captoe shoe. I tried several and settled on this one...

    1940's Hartt Captoe Blucher with 2x sole.

    ^Double soles and metal eyelets -- you won't be using these with light-weight suit fabrics, right?

    These look very much like Armani (and a few other European designers) in the late 90's. The larger round toe is ideal with a fuller, draped pant. I could see these with a nice chunky tweed pant or a full cut flannel. Very nice!

    Many thanks, friend. All I OWN for fall/ winter is heavy wool & tweed pants (along with some denim)!

    This is very interesting and explains why I have trouble getting a good fit. I don't understand why some MTO makers won't throw a tweak in here and there - even with an extra charge it'd be worth it to me.

    F - the shoes are nice, but I must say that something seems to be amiss in your leg or ankle - can't quite pin it down.
