    ^^^I like them, but they seem taller than most other high boots I see.

    Thanks.

    They're from Rider Boots, and I worked with Ron to come up with the pattern. I haven't seen them IRL yet, so I'm interested to see whether they're really that tall. Looking forward to getting them. The turnaround was six months - three to work out the design, and three to get them made (including the Christmas break in Italy.)

    A little before SF and after SF comparison. It has been about 6 months since I joined (and I have bought and sold about 5 pairs that didn't fit correctly). Sorry for the crappy pics, not the best photogropher or camera.

    Top (L to R): Grenson Masterpice for Paul Stuart Timothy in Cognac, Allen Edmonds Delray in Chili, John Lobb Ashley in A Chocolate Brown, John Lobb Towcester in Black


    The chocolate brown loafers caught my eyes straight away. They are beautiful.

    I looked at your description, and they are now my 'grail' shoe.

    Where can one find one of these on the net?
