anyone here cross shop their St Crispins with Anthony Cleverley semi-bespoke? or own both? I have a pair of St C but I haven't had any experience with AC, although the Leather Soul guys reserve the highest praise for AC (they offer both so I assume no bias)
if so your insights would be appreciated
AC semi-bespoke is very under radar but styles are limited. Also, who do they employ to do the hand lasting/welting is also in question.
JERRY... no words.
thanks, this is a good comparison and your input is much appreciated. basically looking for something that is St. Crispin level in quality and finishing, but maybe styled more in the English tradition
i did read about the EG factory "controversy", thanks. i guess i don't care as long as the quality is superlative
jerry. nice boot. it grew on me. the steel toe tap is quite well set compared to similar taps on G&G and Vass shoes that I've seen.
^^^^ Thanks guys! 1st pair of StC boots. So comfortable with all of that arch support.....
Nice boots JB. Is it a special pattern make-up? Can't seem to find your boots in their catalogue.
Check Leather Soul...
Those are very, very pretty. Are they as pretty as my MTO's that just arrived? We will have to wait and see. But I love that color choice for that shoe.
Those are the bees knees
Stc Straight Wings on The Chisled Last
Stc's like to crease on the toe I have noticed.
Do you have insole dimples?
Thanks! Looking forward to see your MTO's!
