    Great to see how bespoke have aged - an important part of the decision making process for observers. Great post and thanks again. Would even be great to see the soles and have fitting comments!

    Thank you. I honestly don't know what the upper leather is, although it looks remarkably similar leather to the pair Simon Crompton commissioned. I went in and asked for a very dark brown pair of cap toe oxfords and they selected what they thought was best. I did however, specify vegetable tanned lining and insole leather based on their advice that it copes with moisture better and it just so happens to offer a subtle contract to the dark brown.

    Nice looking pair Steven! Interesting heel shape, with the tapered back part which goes over to a more cuban heel shape along the edges. Haven't seen that before. Did you specify it?

    Thank you. I didn't specify anything with the heel. Most of the samples in their showroom were quite tapered so I assume it is their house style. I must confess DSC03007.JPG that it makes my G&G Decos look like a pair of wellington boots in comparison.

    Steven: Ok cool. Yeah they usually have tapered heels, but to tapper the back and move towards inwards curved sides (cuban heels when the whole heel has it) isn't something I've seen I believe.

    Ah I see. No I definitely didn't specify it, but quite like it.
