I had my shoes in status 'Awaiting Dispatch' for 2 weeks. I couldn't understand what the problem was if they were ready to go. I wrote them a polite email suggesting that this was my first purchase and if this was going to be an issue then could they cancel the order and I'll go with plal. (not far from the truth as I was prepared a little more). Shipped next day I think most people would agree that there is nothing more painful than waiting forever for an order.

To complete my own thread and to add to the knowledge bank regarding Loake shoes. My Loake Dorchester's in the 1880 line on the Mayfair last size 9.5F UK arrived today. I purchased this shoe as an everyday 'beater' to wear to work. I know Loake are not highly regarded on this forum however in the village I live in of 4 million, I hope it will beat the 90% of fashion forward square toe cement jobs made in China.

The closest I came to 'authentic chinese' cuisine' I think (outside of china) was in an eastern block country that had for political reasons accepted alot of chinese and packed them into condensed high rise dwelling. The Chinese Restaurant downstair served food that was not as 'colourful', 'sweet' or 'glossy' as the food you get in the west.

Looking for comment on Authenticy of Chinese Cuisine prepared in N America and the West is vs Chinese Cuisine back in China. I am under the impression most dishes have been either created or manipulated to match western tastes with an example being Mongolian Lamb and Beef.
