    Just curious, but how many pairs of dress shoes do you own? Over 100?

    these damages incurred by the shoe fairy always bring me back temporarily to my interest in shoes

    Fixed!

    Now on to the subject at hand.

    I love them all Andrew. Particularly the first EG RLPL Herends as to their color and the double leather sole.

    When you get a choice of single or double sole, as in your Bespoke or MTO shoes, do you generally go with a double sole, or is it on a case by case basis?

    BTW: True "This Week's Shoe Damage" fans like myself await the Bespoke rein deer commissions. What's the due date on those babies?

    Great looking shoes! I know I am in the minority here at SF but I like black shoes a good deal and yours pictured above are terrific examples. [​IMG]

    Can't you just give me the illusion that I can keep up? It is so cruel to dash it.

    Nice clean sweep of the EGs for RLPL...when its black, the shape is even more important, and every shoe looks swell.

    Someday we may see an auction of the shoe collection of a 'European Nobleman.'

    Stern and Peering just don't do much for me. The Herend, however, are gorgeous.

    Damn those Herends are off the scale. I should have devoted an entire day of phone time to tracking them down during the sale...

    As long as it takes place on the B&S Forum, I'm all for it!

    The Stern and Peering are fantastic. The Grant is an SF classic. [​IMG]
