    ^^ WHS.

    Tom Ford offers a very similar model / last which you can sometimes pick up on the bay:

    I think they are called adelaide or something.

    C&J makes one called Westbourne. AS also makes one in their exclusive range and it is available in 3 colors at afinepairofshoes

    I'd call this a punch cap adelaide.

    The version from the Armory has an additional hand applied polish finish and includes a lasted shoe tree. You can get the lasted tree from Bespoke but not the hand applied polish finish. When camparing prices you might want to consider the whole package, including trees and delivered. I honostly haven't compared, so I don't which is the better price.

    You aren't going to find G&G shoes for any discount. Edwards of Manchester had some at slightly reduced prices a month or so ago. But they have raised them up to the same price as at Bespoke England and they don't even offer lasted trees.

    If you wants 'em you gotta pays for 'em. Them's the breaks.

    Yes, Adelaide with punch cap toe. Carmina make a nice Adelaide without the cap in a similar color. Available at the Armoury or in my signature if you're a size 9. (spam).

    Only because I have purchased from the Armoury, not BE, and I love the guys at the Armoury. Not that I don't like BE, I just never worked with them.

    Anything similar (but with a less elongated and chiseled last) at a more reasonable price? I know Cheaney makes one in black...

    Take a look at the Loake Strand, or Tricker's Belgrave.

    When it comes to SHAPE there is no other exactly like the G&G. At least not to my knowledge.
