    How do you look this stuff up? Might have to make a webapp so all this stuff can be archived.
    I searched Google for ' crockett "297 last" ' and ' crockett "last 297" ' and found results on Pediwear and here, IIRC.

    I have the A-E Belmont in brown & white and black & white. Not the classiest spectators in the world--the white part is plain leather, not suede or buck--but they only cost me $79 a pair at the outlet. I wear them about eight days a year in the summer and early fall. I'd wear them more often, probably, but my wife loathes them, so I don't wear them when I am out and about with her.

    The few I've seen go by on eBay tend to go for higher than average prices, so somebody's buying them... What I don't get is why most wingtip spectators are balmorals considering they seem more casual than single-tone shoes? [​IMG]

    i have brown leather/suede ones from Barker Black. I like them. i dont like contrastic spectators. The same color suede on these makes them less spectatorish I guess..

    I purchased a pair of factroy second AE McClain Borubon/Bone spectators at the Port Washington Tent Sale this past Friday. I thought the price of $195 pretty competitive.

    I think the styling of the McClain works more in the spectator model-looks good. Like Vanilla fudge swirl ice cream.

    I'm of the opinion that spectators look better underneath drainpipe or full-cut straight leg trousers.

    these spec's are quite nice!![​IMG]


    Often I find that Japanese or French customers get carried away when ordering custom shoes but I must confess these are Stunning to say the least. I have almost never (if even once) seen them done like this seamless manner, which makes them even more "summery" or desirable. This shoe in white & brown or ivory & brown combination would be a genuine eye candy. This won't be nearly as unique if executed in usual calf suede combo. Part of its charm is that it is all suede or fuzz.

    It is such a simple design (cap-toe) but no one ever makes two-tones this way. All of them are wingtips or some other bastardization of classic cap toe design.

    Kindly provide all info as to who made these shoes and have you ever seen this done in MTM type of a program... or know of a manufacturer than can?

    very unusual... very unique & certainly appealing to my eye.

    thanks for sharing

    the shoe are made from the people that have the webisite which i got from centepede one time so i am sure a lot more info could come from him!

    as to who could make then i guess bespoke anyone can and will on a made to order perhaps EG, Vass, maybe even G&G i guess it just depend on how flexable they want to to be!

    here is the website run thru' google
    http://translate.google.com/translat...language_tools

    which does not give much more info but makes thing a little clearer

    regards
