    I'm surprised that it's more expensive than the Thorpe with it's apron stitching. Is it due to the fact that it's a wholecut with one seam? And where is the seam located?

    It is a wholecut and the seam is in the back.

    They were delayed due to some problems with one of their suppliers.

    The Soller last is slightly elongated as well as wide in the forefoot. For specific fitting advice, please e-mail us att [email protected]

    Now that I've diacovered the wonders of Carmina cordovan, I require more. Anything coming? Or did the shortage torpedo everything?

    That is beautiful. Never would have considered a wholecut in suede. Color does it for me and interestingly the medallion is a nice touch. Hardly noticeable from afar but a nice addition close up. Wholecut and laces make it quite a unique MTO.

    I like Suede Chukkas on the Skoak site as well.

    Frank is incoming within a few weeks in Burgundy Shell. Frank as in Frankenstitch. Please email us to be on the waiting list, we expect this to sell out really quickly.

    There is still a shortage in Shell due to lack of horsehides in the US. Horween is looking to source hides from Europe now to get around this shortage, or so I have heard anyway (unconfirmed). We can do single Shell MTOs but RTW lines will probably not be available until maybe mid or late 2015.

    Hmm, details? Don't remember the last, sole, etc from the last run. Any large (i.e. 11.5UK) sizes?

    Oh so tempting, Leaves. But I'm hoping you have another boot for me soon.
