    Anyone has good shots of the Light Brown Double Monk calf taken in natural light, such as outdoor?? Im trying to see if it matches with Uniqlo Light Brown Stiched Belt. Supposedly the belt matches w/ Walnut, and the Light Brown resembles Walnut a lot so I though it might work.


    Thanks

    Oh and regarding duties, mine (Dark Brown) came in by FEDEX without any hiccups - Southern California.

    Did anyone else have issues with the inseam/inside in the heel of the Classic Line Double Monk being so hard? The sizing on mine is fine IMO but I had really bad blisters after wearing them for a while and they are still so hard. Not really sure what to do about them :embar:

    I had some problem with both my long wings and my double monks, but give it some time and they will be really comfortable.

    I'm glad they disclose the timing now. I received a confirmation email rather quickly, then about 3 weeks later an email requesting payment, although even at that point the email said it would be another 20-25 days before the shoes were ready for shipment.

    I am about 40 days into the process and the shoes have not shipped yet, but as others have said, it will be worth the wait.

    Guys,

    Some of the Paypal invoices for the MTO have been sent out; Pepe is busy travelling at the moment and I guess he will have the rest of the invoices sent out soon.

    Good news is that the Radica leather order has been placed with Ilcea and they have started work on it.

    On a separate note, just wanted some feedback from all of you. If you could choose your favourite last from any shoe brand, what last will it be?

    For me Vass U, EG888 and CJ348.
    Own a pair on the NewRey and it's very good too, maybe just a bit on the narrow side, but very nice.

    Just to double check, we're paying 100% upfront for this correct? I am under the impression that MTO orders are paid upfront as opposed to how they handle their other lines, such as paying when the shipment is ready.

    Thanks
