    Well that's my modest "Purchase of the month":
    [​IMG]

    I always liked Venetian loafers, but that particular style hasn't been in production for yonks.
    When I saw them as new/old stock on eBay, I pounced:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...1045%26fvi%3D1

    Just got them yesterday, they are nice and fit well.

    One fella here, quite pleased with himself.

    it appears as though you've been keeping me at arm's length.
    I had to expect the worst ...[​IMG][​IMG]
    Cheers, buddy. I know you're still looking for the Tavistock and so am I, but the Ormond (on 330 last) is a reasonable substitute for the time being. I was lucky to get the dark brown Cleveland. It actually shows that my first 'Cleveland' was in fact a sample shoe as it is not exactly the same style as the other one.

    My only shoe purchase 2006 was a pair of C&J Chelsea 5 with Dainite soles in Chestnut through Pediwear. I ordered them in December as Winter shoe, but it took them until end of February/begin of March for delivery. They are really beautiful boots, and (un)fortunately Winter decided to stay a bit longer this year (it's Mid-March and we have -4°C and about 1m of snow, when it normally should have disappeared 2-3 weeks ago...), so I even can put them to good use. [​IMG] Normally I would now think about shoes for the summer, but looking outside of the window into the white landscape doesn't put me into the mood for it [​IMG]

    Do the Bexley shoe tree fill in the shoes in the width at 100% ?

    Personally, I love them and think at US$21/pair, the value is fantastic. I currently own 24 pair of these.

    As for completely filling the shoe, the answer is yes. They are split and hinged.

    Every time you post one of these, I hate you more and more.

    After seeing the 2003 Special and Newbury, I had to run to the defibrillator. Absolutely phenomenal.


    Thanks M. The burnishing on the burgundy Newbury is spectacular and I wish it came across better in the photos. Green really nailed both of my special ordres.

    Fantastic purchases, aportnoy. I love grained calf, and that museum gold is gorgeous. But I must say that it's the olive that speaking to me right now. You might want to keep it under lock and key....[​IMG]

    I'm really impressed with the Edward Green "Newbury" in the mink suede. I think that may be the nicest looking wholecut I've seen. [​IMG] I do feel sorry for the poor minks that gave their lives for it, though...

    Mental note: get wholecut in suede.
