Fill in those gaps now.
Get'em, Get'em while they're HOT!!!LOL
I got gaps she got gaps together we got gaps.
Shoe trees arrived today...looks like boys in customs may have been playing soccer with the box but the trees are A OK.
$2400 for TD.....that is rich. They better be willing to make a cordovan galway at that price.
Supposedly EG won't. Something to do with the shaft if I remember correctly.
That's almost the cost of 3 stock models yikes.
That's St Crispin's territory for me.
I am up for this.
I think only the simply wholecut is in the price range perhaps a cordovan boot but general st.c prices are around 1600-1800$.
I know, I haven't purchased that many but I did buy two of them. One was a Cordovan and Russian calf boot and the other was a double monk. I'm just saying if I were to spend that much St Crispin's is were I'd be looking first at this point in time.
I think they are two different aesthetics but I agree at that price point I could more easily justify the premium. One of the reasons I prize EG of JL is the cost along with MTO options.
Agreed, they are a totally different aesthetics. Maybe there might be advantages for going EG top drawer which are worthwhile but I haven't found one yet. I've only purchased one shoe from JL and I have yet to really want for another at this point. So at this point in time for that price mentioned I would much rather get something from St Crispins.
Certainly a valid view point.
Can we do a MTO for a GG boot? I am thinking Wigmore in burgundy with some sort of grain shaft with dainite sole?
I'd be in for Wigmore on TG73. How about vintage burgundy, burgundy highland grain shaft and dainite soles?
Or perhaps a Rioja hatch grain shaft?
