    Do you have the insole length measurement on the Vass Alt Wien's in size 43?

    My Marlow wingtips in size 10 fit well, with about 11.75 in insole length.

    I measure with a tape measure held in inside the very front of the toe box, to the back on the heel.

    I know there have been a lot of questions about restocking. We are talking to some of the makers about restocking (and have in the past) but as a matter of general rule : most of what has been sold and is seasonal in nature will not be restocked for this season. I know people are used to restocks in the fashion & sportswear world with large brands operating with wholesale inventory. There is only a handful of our brands that have standardized collections and therefore potentially wholesale stock on hand for restocking. The vast majority are smaller makers with whom we placed a "cut-to-order" order, selecting styles, cuts and materials. The lead times for those orders are several months so if this is the case for restock orders (again we're confirming lead times), that will take us into spring and therefore a dangerous business decision on our part.

    We're not a large store, we're a small operation in our first season of our first year, so our runs are reasonably short. We don't believe in the prevalent fashion business model that relies on sale seasons for a bulk of their business - we don't overstock, we don't inflate prices so that we can take them down 70% off with a big fat red sticker. We believe in fair prices from day one and we stock smaller quantities.

    That said, there are also many items that are less seasonal, from accessories to footwear or "all season" clothing, and we will place restock orders for those once we get a better sense of which styles and sizes need restocking. 3 days of operations is too small of a sample to start drafting re-orders... I'm sorry if some items are sold out in your size or color you wanted. There is an "out of stock" notification function that is not working properly right now but that we hope to fix in the next 24-48 hours. This will be the best way for us to know what customers want that is not available in their size - so registering your interest for those OOS notifications will go a long way toward helping us place the right restocking orders. I will let you know when it is working and you can use it.

    I can answer this. I don't want to speak for Greg, but from what I understand most likely the sweaters won't be restocked this go around. Not sure about the jacket.
