    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Yeah, 5" is extreme, but you'd need at least 4" to do a standard 1.75" cuff as Murl said, which means any inseam thats 33" or longer and you're out of luck, especially if you wanted a bigger cuff. 1.75" tends to look pretty wimpy on me. I've even posted pics with 2" cuffs and all the feedback I've always gotten is that they still look too small on my frame, which is why I started going with 2.25" most of the time. I could probably do a faux cuff, but that would be it

    That makes more sense now Greg. I must have longer legs as well. I'm just a shade under 6'2" and I have 33" inseam on my trousers. So I need ~37.5" for a 2" in cuff. Even with a 1.75" cuff I need ~37". Bollocks. :brick:

    Faux-cuffs are your friend

    Yeah, I guess so - but not a fan.

    That now explains why I frequently have so much trouble finding trousers that are long enough.

    So for reference, for a 2" faux cuff I need ~3" extra (2" for the "cuff", 1/2" for the "faux" and another 1/2" for the underside)? Or no?

    Yes that sounds about right. I have several suits with faux cuffs, and I find them just fine especially if the tailor adds the kick tape to give them a little more weight and protect the inside

    The bolded part seems to be what I'm missing when I get faux cuffs done, maybe that's why I never liked them in the past. I'll look into this next time I get pants that aren't long enough for a real cuff, thanks!

    Or I could just have a couple of inches removed from my legs like Ethan Hawke did in Gattica.

    Ehm, the opposite. He got his legs lengthened, actually existing and excrutiating procedure, think invented by a Russian or so. Basically the bones of your lower leg get sawn into several segments, the whole stabilised with bolts, nuts and bars set into the bones. Then the stretching process begins where bone mass fills in the gaps over time, the same way broken bones grow back together. Sounds fun, right?

    PSA : we just added a pretty big restock of Vass shoes. In particular, the ultra-popular scotch-grain Norweger is back in all sizes.

    If you see something you like, in your size, get it now - don't wait until it's sold out and then ask us when we'll be restocking it ! [​IMG]

    Another big shipment to come in a few weeks that will include also new styles. [​IMG]

    We get a Formosa shipment at the start of each season. We're expecting the next one to be early to mid September, but it's too early in the production process to be totally sure.

    I visited the NMWA office yesterday to nail down my size in several items. Greg and Kyle were very patient and helpful, as always. I highly recommend a visit if you live in NYC or are visiting.

    Not sure what this means :confused: , but I have a feeling I should have waited a day or two before placing last Cantarelli order :facepalm::embar:
