    Edward Green and G&G both executes this style to perfection. I've not seen any maker to this day make a finer split toe than these makers.

    I like the way Carmina makes them too, but it's a totally different style, not as refined. I also very much like the clunky way Alden makes a split toe, like in tifosi's avatar.

    I have split toes from all three. They all do them very well.

    While I love GG VOAK (?), been waiting for someone to talk up Isham or Thorpe in chestnut pin grain. Why more shoes don't appear in that beautiful leather is beyond me.

    Coffee suede is quickly making it's way to the top of the list for me.

    Great makeups!

    I have been wanting to get something in Chestnut Pin grain for a long time? Not Isham though I already have that.

    You know what would look great in Chestnut Pin Grain? The Woburn model made into a boot. Now if only @GazianoGirling would make that.
