Oh OK. Maybe that pic was just for color and not for last. Thanks, SFTG.
That is what I thought.
Can't get enough of the Isham. I have one pair on the MH71 in Vintage Oak on Dainite and it's so bloody great. Have two more Ishams on order (Vintage Chestnut and Kudu).
That's KN14. The Isham is usually made on the MH71, with a storm welt but it looks better without it IMO. Our version is without.
Got a pic of vintage chestnut? Any F widths coming with your fall order?
Correction,the loafer is on the KN14 last, but i have come to really love the MH71 last. It is a finely crafted last, truly gorgeous in person, you just can't appreciate it's full awesomeness in pictures. As far as the Isham, even the GG06 would probably be good, and would be more comparable to the EG 202.
The Isham would probably be ideal on the MH71 last, but I think it would look good on any GG last except the TG73. GG has incredible flexibility, so you can pretty much chose your last when ordering your MTO. Which is why most models can be found on various (if not all) last options in online pics...
Tavistock in Rioja in F and we'll probably open up for pre-order too in different widths, but thats still a few months off.
^^^ Cool. Thanks.
Well that timing won't do. I could be tempted on a gmto, but a more traditional color than blue...
Got two great styles from Dandy Shoe Care to offer, single pairs we've sent down for Alexander to work his magic on. Both available in UK 9 only.
Carmina Single Monk by Dandy Shoe Care (EDIT: sold)
Carmina Chukka by Dandy Shoe Care
I would have totally broken my "no more for 2014" plan if that suede honey was an 8.5. Sweet!
Leaves - How durable is Alex's work? Looks great in pictures but I'm wondering if the coloring fades over time? Obviously the shine will go down but does the patina?
Hmm, I much prefer the Dover over the Mh71 Hove. I just like the country like feel on the Dover. Hove is more city which would be good if it was an oxford... Just love the round goodness of the 202 Dover.
Oddly though, I do prefer the Thorpe over the Nevis though. The Nevis stitching seems weird to me. The apron seems more squarelike and blocky and it reminds me of Carmina's split toe shape which I hate.
Mine are holding up very well, but it hasn't exactly been forever - close to a year.
Mixed media Thorpe would be superb. Thinking chestnut pin grain with a smooth leather on the shaft and vamp. MH71.
Or maybe the Isham in chestnut pin grain?!
Those "shit kicker" Thorpes you posted were on the TG73? Looked pointier than MH71.
I love the side profile of the Isham, reminds me of the Vass OE II model. So clean.
what color suede are those ?
