    Did someone (relatively) recently post pics of a pair of wingtip bals without the typical St. C notch in the side broguing? Maybe I just imagined it, but I went back about a year in the thread and couldn't find them.

    Does anyone know the differences between these 3 models: 508, 575 and 633. Thanks in advance. I want a split toe derby in suede as my first Saint crispins model and was hoping someone could give me some insight. Thanks!

    Thanks. I've looked at that, but it's difficult for me to see the differences. For example, the 508 and 575 look the same to me. The only difference I see with the 633 and the other two is machine sewed apron vs hand sewn. That seems like a small change for an entirely new model designation.

    When you have identifierad the difference with the split toe seam where the iconic 633 uses the skin stitch method look on the vamp next

    The sides on the 508 is sewn on top of the toe box while the 575 is sewn in the very same way as the split toe (on 508 and 575) with all leather pieces level
