Ordered Aug 1 and you got it after Nov 1, so 12 weeks? I've never had an order go over 9 weeks. He seems to be going on an incredible run of trunk shows. I hope everything is okay. Luckily I got most of my pairs but I used to appreciate how quickly they could be made.
Beautiful! Very bold but stylish purchase.When did you order them? I heard the factory has been a little behind on getting deliveries out.
I think I'm a half size smaller in StCs but then again I may have been sizing up in G&Gs for more width.As time goes by I'm more and more convinced that prospective first time buyers (who want to MTO something customized) should seriously consider either trial shoes or ordering a personal last and making your first order at a trunk show in order to dial in the best possible fit from the beginning. It's not exactly the most convenient process but part of the beauty of these...

I finally had an opportunity to wear my rig last weekend to a wedding in NC. While it rained like crazy it survived traveling to and from the event. It needs some work on the shoulders but otherwise for the first wear it worked out well. I also added ribboned laces to my patent leather Aldens. The pic was taken before I had a chance to tuck the collar behind the bow. Also at the wedding I noticed most of the younger people in black tie has some kind of contrasting...
Wish I'd seen these before I ordered my bal boots.  I like the punch detail up the area parallel to the lacing (throat? instep?) and the top edge.  Thanks for sharing!This is the internet, it can be hard to control how people take things.  Absent the knowledge that you don't troll much--if at all, it could be taken either way.(Emoticons help if you're into them.) We can agree the boots are nice!
