Has any of you experience of a wholecut style shoe? I have pasted a Tricker's Harrow model to show an example.
Do the inevitable creases after a few wears ruin the smooth and shiny look to an unwearable level?
Needless to say that someone would use trees and polish, but even so creases appear where the toe bends.
Any pictures of your own pair?

I don't think the creases are too much to handle, but you have to know that they will appear at one point or another, no matter how gingerly you walk or how much you moisturize. Here are my wholecuts; judge for yourself.

To my eyes, a few creases, developed through long use and mitigated through the attentive care and maintenance a gentleman gives quality foot gear, provide a shoe added character and desirability. HISMES PARIS, those shoes look incredible!

It might be a fit factor. ?? too wide, not wide enough, too long, not long enouch?

I have two wholecuts from Pediwear (this new one Crocket and Jones, The Weymouth in brown antique calf, Last 337):

And these Tricker's Harrow Jermyn Street Collection.


The new pair I've worn a couple of times now with no visible creases. The Tricker's I've had for some time and they only have slight "wrinkles".

If you order from Pediwear, and I recommend their products and especially their customer service, make sure you look at the special AskAndy Members offer on the Recommendation Page linked in the upper left.

I am particularly attracted by the Tricker's Harrow and yes I was considering Pediware.
Can you tell me the last they are on?

i have a pair of grenson trents in cognac - they're just very very fine shoes..
I agree. I'm wearing mine now :icon_smile:
I've been on a real Grenson splurge recently and there are still several styles I would like to add to my collection including the Trent. It does look like an excellent buy for the Jacksonshoes price as always. I love Grensons!

Hello,
The Harrow is made on the standard Jermyn Street collection last which is the 6038L.

Hope this helps,

Chris.
It helps a lot. I doubt that the local retailer of Tricker's shoes has the Harrow model in stock. I can try another pair on the same last to be sure of size and fitting and then be adventurous on a mail order. With such a model the two wings should touch together when laced up, in order to look nice. You can't be sure without trying them on...and I have a high instep...sigh...
