what are SLGs?
if they weren't made to fit your feet, they don't really have that attraction of being bespoke for you, right?
yup....really can't remember the last time i saw someone i'd say would have been featured in the sartorialist. don't see how hk could qualify at all
leather flat and boring - yup, they really don't finish their leathers at all, so if you want the nice finishing, you've got to do it yourself (see somewhere between page 15-20 of this thread). when i got my black shoes, he had polished it with something that made the leather look cheap and awful. for the entire first day i wore them, i was worried that i'd gotten corrected grain! i cleaned them up at home and they look better now, though admittedly not as good as...

ads on the side, big thumbs down size of the ads, big thumbs down sizing of fonts and borders etc, big thumbs down layout of the threads, big thumbs down it just doesn't look good. size of my monitors at work means i'm going to be coming here a lot less seems like whoever did the redesign has a 30" monitor and thinks everyone else does too.
