    All of the shoes are nice. The two I like best are the Lobb Berkley and the Vass wholecut. At one time I wanted the Lobb William but have since decided I'm not a fan of double monks. I do, however, like the color you chose for the William.

    Ho Hum, just another typical day at the office for aportnoy[​IMG]

    Some of us are eagerly awaiting the bespoke and reindeer hide babies.

    BTW: These are all gorgeous. My favorite this time is the Vass wholecut because of the color ad the beautiful last.

    Don't feel bad.

    Andrews shoe collection has a greater net worth than most of those bitter people in Middle America that have turned to Religion and guns.

    Gotta show the love for the Vass and the Paul Stuarts. Superb.

    What about those of us in nyc who have turned to guns? I have almost as many guns as shoes but even my two hobbies together don't approach the glory of the "collection".

    I appreciate that your shoes show some evidence of subtle creasing before pics are posted. Not all, but most. Is this deliberate?

    The Vass wholecuts are especially beautiful. The colour is wonderful.

    Some of my children are more delicate than others.

    Portnoy, a modest proposal:

    How about now that you have every possible shoe you can, you buy me shoes? I will then lovingly take photographs on an Oriental rug and will give them a good home.

    PM me for the lasts, models and sizes I want.
