I love it. Preferably on some type of last like Riva and not the Classic.
With shell, that Riva last should pair more seamlessly as it's more casual.

I'd imagine someone would have already ordered it on the Riva last. Pictures in the library?

What are your current other commissions?
Ongoing. .. A pair of loafers from Ramon Cuberta, apron front derbies from Castez Ermili, Pigskin SpTDs from Gerald Thibaut, captoes from Atienza, captoes from Saskia Wittmer, apron front derbies from Kiyo Uda, Chukks from Winson.

Mostly all I'm waiting for further fittings, and confirmation of leather color.

Then I have a hold on a pair of loafers from Winson. Hoping to begin a loafer commission from Perticone.

So once all of those get sorted out, only then I can begin to think about ordering another pair from StCs.

"waiting on other commissions" sounds like a massive understatement. lol. Your other commissions can be compared to some people's entire collection.

I guess perspective is everything
That's true actually.

Those are outstanding and not in my possession, so they don't count against my tally..
That said, I don't want to take on any new commissions until those are sorted out. Exceptions can be made for the right maker. StC would not be that maker as I have a fair amount from them (6 pairs).
