    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

    Did you buy the shoes to match the phone or vice versa?

    Are they on the U last/bespoke?

    My favorite spectators are these Polo (C&J) loafers (shown next to a Weston 180). I'm really quite taken with them, but most of my friends seem to have issues with the shoes when I wear them. Oh well.
