    Andrew, I love the wholecut. Such a clean, refined look!

    The Budapester in Burgundy looks great. Looks as good as the U last version [​IMG]

    This re-inforces my decision to go with the U-cap for my next order. I wonder how they would look without the broguing though.... [​IMG]

    The middle pair, in scotch grain, are beautiful. I could also see getting the half boot version of that with Alden's commando soles.

    Beautiful shoes. Those wholecuts are gorgeous.

    On a sidenote, where did you get that rug? It's ubiquitous. I see it in department stores, office buildings, law firms, everywhere.

    You need to be institutionalized.

    I like the wholecut and the adelaide, but the budapester, for me, falls between two stools. A shoes like that doesn't want to be in a sleek last like the F.

    Andrew, have you ever bought a pair of shoes and found out that you already have a pair exactly like what you just got?
