    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.

    I should have added that the photo is courtesy of Leffot. I tried them on, and loved them, but they are a bit out of my current price range.[/quote]

    I don't remember exactly, but I think they were approx $1100 or $1200 if MTO on a different last/leather color.

    Yes, these are superb shoes and yes we can use this design on a AS Exclusive spec shoe - we want to find out what other styles you would want, and in what leathers and colours. We can run this as an mto over on the thread http://www.styleforum.net/t/300953/a-fine-pair-of-shoes-x-alfred-sargent-mto-thread if you want or we can get a really good idea then put a stock line order in with AS - up to you.[/quote]

    Very interested but cash poor at the moment. Personal preference would be in a dark brown color like Oak, but would be willing to go with the crowd if someone else started a MTO and it was not something I already had covered.

    From what I recall Leffot had a lot at that price range- AS Handgrade, G&G, EG, perhaps one or two more. They had Alden as well, much lower down the line, focusing mostly on boots if I recall, but not much if anything in the middle where C&J and AS Benchgrade seem to occupy the space here on SF.

    I got my MTO Cooper Double Monks today and they look great. Took forever to get the settings on my camera to capture what they really look like in person.

    The suede is way less neon blue than what is shown on the site which opens up a few more ideas on what they can be worn with in my opinion. If anyone was on the fence about these I hope this pushes you over the top.

    A matter of fit? I think the Ducker & Son suede loafers are absolutely better crafted. I have just purchased one pair, and I am really stunned by their sheer elegance and lightness as if they were blake welted. Great shoes for the Summer.

    The trick is to have a few MTO spaced out evenly.

    They every once in a while you get a completed order to just satisfy the craze.

    If you were a dog, then you'd need 2 pairs.
    And you'd probably just chew them up anyway.
