    That would be great, thank you,

    Thank you for the reply. That's what I'd suspect. Unfortunately, suits and flannel trousers with shirts and ties are the only things I wear. Although, I think I'm interested in a pair in dark brown in museum calf.

    I own a pair of Grenson Stowe "wholecuts" in dark brown suede and calfskin, distributed much like the shoes in your link. I wear them for business casual with flannels and get compliments whenever I wear them. They're different from other shoes in a very subtle way and I really like that.

    The shoes you linked are SWEET!

    Good news: My shoes and boots are done and shipped...

    Bad news: They were shipped to my old address in NYC and now I live in MI...

    Does anyone know which location Mr. Kuti works at? Is he in the Haris köz 2. or 6. shop? Thanks!

    X-post from the NMWA thread - for my birthday yesterday my wife finally gave me the Vass she had hidden away from the NMWA sale in Oct. My first pair of Vass and I'm loving these!

    Merry Birthday Fred, love da shooz!

    My U last black caps had their first outing yesterday. (To a funeral so no pics :(...)
    Very comfortable even though I think I probably need a 42 wide instead of the 42.5 regular I got: Tiny bit of pinky toe crimping and a little creasing into the cap area.
    Overall fantastic shooz and I can't wait for my next pair!

    I just acquired my first pair of Vass from NMWA! :) They are antique cognac austerity brogues. I am looking for anyone's experience with or recommendation for the appropriate color Saphir creme polish for antique cognac. Any insight is appreciated.

    those are lovely. I've been thinking about getting the full brogues from NMWA. Brogues are perfect this time of year!
