    @JubeiSpiegel I know that you have done some nice work with photoshopping pics so we can get an idea of what it will look like, but this one may take it as the best one yet. The shading that you have achieved with some texture is really something.

    Good point, edit had been made to my post, but I would prefer a rubber sole for this one.

    Noted good sir.

    The program does most of the work, but thank you... :)

    Just throwing ideas out here, maybe a compromise would be a leather sole for the MTO and have G&G make a topy for your pair.

    The few pics I've seen where G&G soles were topied has been nothing but spectaular, cut angular accentuating the beveled waist.

    I will strongly consider it for future seasons but this season I decided to stock the 80391 Adelaide Cap Toe in Polo Suede instead, should come in mid-May.
    Shanklin are supposed to be shipped today from Edward Green, hopefully they will arrive on Friday.
    I'd love to add Alden at some point. Love the style.
    Lovely, thanks for sharing.
    Also inboud late this week. Hopefully Friday.
    Remember you need six first in one width then we can accept different widths.

    I'm planning on picking up a black captoe from Carmina and you are giving me serious indecision as to which one I need.

    Yes, we offer quite a selection of black cap toes these days so I can see your dilemma. :)

    How quickly will you be refilling the EB black captoe? That's sold out quite impressively quickly.

    I have not decided if we actually will refill that.

    I said this before that model would look great in one of the suede colors, dark brown suede in my opinion.

    If you're referring to the E.B. in black (which was discussed last week) I'm definitely interested in one in dark brown museum. Although, I was hoping no one would bring it up until June, as I can't afford another pair of shoes at the time being. Haha :D

    Come June, I will definitely bring it up if it hasn't been organized yet.
