    Obviously not the case but i thought Cleverley had the sole rights to MTO Russian Deer and New & Lingwood RTW or something like that.......

    Fantastic monks btw

    I believe Cleverly has the first right of refusal. I have seen Panerai watch straps and wallets made with this stuff.

    Congratulations, those are some particularly lovely monks. I've recently ordered a more pedestrian version in suede, and if mine turn out as well as yours there will likely be multiple re-ups in various leathers and colors.

    Wear them in good health!

    They look nice, but i usually prefer single monstraps. As alipera2011, I would also like to know which shoes are on sale and their price. Thanks.

    Was informed by Mr Car that the wooden pegs are used as it gives more strength to the waist of the shoe.

    Check out this pic for their Pret customized line. Not sure what the upcharge would be (if any)

    I've probably wooden pegged more waists (and foreparts) in my career than even the pegged shoe disciples have seen in their entire lives. I like and admire pegging as a technique. I have shoes and boots that are pegged both in the waist and as the only means of attachment (full pegged).

    But while pegging will stiffen the waist, it will not measurably strengthen it.

    More, pegging damages the insole in a way that welting will not. Welt can be taken out and replaced/repaired almost indefinitely. Three or four resoles using pegs and the insole is Swiss cheese.

    Semantics here, but to make it stiffer makes it stronger?

    No. Nothing to do with semantics...simply definitions--meanings of words.

    "Stiffness" refers to flexibility. "Strength" refers to resistance to tearing, breaking, falling apart.

    Wood, for instance, can be stiff but brittle and break easily. The willow versus the oak.

    I'm sure you can think of multiple other examples.

    Leather is generally regarded as flexible but strong.

    Putting multiple holes in leather, however...even if you fill them with hard rock maple (once upon a time the gold standard for a premium peg)...reduces its strength.
