    Agree with Roger...quite stunning. I don't usually associate SC with shell...may have to consider that make-up for a future MTO.

    I'm happy to share with you my vers 1st pair of SCs. Saw these boots in leather and tweed (Novello last) on their Facebook page and it was love at first sight.

    Since no SC dealer in my neck of the woods I contacted Mr Philipp Car directly and explained my shoe size in different other makers. He suggested a size with no warranty of fit as I had not tried the pair on before but I took the risk and am glad as they fit perfectly!

    Icing on the cake, I ordered the shoes in Sept , announced delivery was mid Nov but I received them end of Oct!

    So without further ado here are some (lousy) pictures of my boots

    Very cool. I have seen a similar pair at Leatherfoot - extra awesome in person. Congrats!

    Love your boots Alex...I went for a more traditional configuration on that model. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Very nice boots gentlemen, thinking of ordered a 105 in shrunken crust / shell combo once I get my first pair on custom last

    The austerity brogue boots are just sublime.

    Did you insist on a custom last? I got dissuaded by Philip to just using PRET.

    I definitely got the impression from him that he thinks bespoke isn't necessary.

    Ah that's what I meant, just waiting on the PRET fit before ordering another pair

    Ah okay.

    Same here. I am waiting for my PRET to show up. Not as courageous as pB to order more pairs before receiving the initial order.

    Did you order during the trunk show? I hope my order will show up before mid December...

    Yes, one day before you did I believe. Phillip told me first week of December hopefully but before Christmas for sure

    Feel pretty confident fit will be perfect, went with the simply as I didn't originally plan on getting a pair but had to once I saw the shoe. Was going to get a variation of jerrybrowne's boot but have enough boots for now.
