Very nice once again. However, I'm just wondering how often you get to wear your shoes given that you must have at least one for every day of the month by now. I try to 'rotate' mine but pretty much end up wearing shoes to work from one subset, 'saving' others for specal occasios in another subset and pretty much ignoring others.

U last full brogue is amazing!

Andrew strikes again. There must be rooms full of shoes in your house.

Very beautiful. The full brogue on the U last looks nearly like the Peter Last. I had not realized that the U could get that wide. Is this a medium width??

Please tell me how you see the fit of the U last compared to the 888, 202/606, and 8000?

Good looking pics. I can't believe that Carmina boot was $300ish. Beautiful, beautiful, piece. I would love to get that pair a little spit shine TLC, and a season's worth of wear.

aportnoy, that dark brown wingtip and john lobb bad weather shoe are just spectacular.
that john lobb shoe looks very authoritative. looks like someone who is the team lead of a search party would wear.

and that vass wingtip, omigod. the best.
can you please pm or reply back on how you go about ordering this vass and purchasing. from vass directly or through a middle store?

Andrew, your shoe collection is just outstanding!

You are a man with money and great taste!

Ah, I am wondering if you have any Lattanzi shoes?

Given your collection, I am sure you have your share of handmade shoes from Italy.


I love that Vass and that Edward Green.

Andrew, What can I add. To those of us that love beautiful shoes, there's nothing to be added. Superb!

BTW: You had mentioned Peter Elliot in a previous post. Many years ago I lived at 39 E. 68th, and I left before Peter Elliot arrived on Madison. Have you purchased many of your amazing shoe collection there? I seem to remember Elliot as a small, understated beautiful shop with a relatively small selection of wonderful stuff.

Another great display.

I've got to ask about the quantity though. Do you have a special rider on the homeowner's insurance policy? The total for the Shoe Damage threads would be a significant value. Maybe these posts will help establish value if there is a loss?
