    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.

    Justin,

    just a quick clarification, the boot, the grained calf on the shaft, it is a fine PIN grain right? And not the really coarse Scotch grain, is that correct?

    Oh gosh, yes, sorry Julian. - all sorted though, Sarah and I are communicating already.

    Thanks for the great MTO opportunity, it has been a great pleasure to participate and to watch how the whole process progressed so smoothly.

    These are going to be fantastic boots and shoes.

    Very exciting!

    Thanks AFPOS

    Both mto orders are in with AS and confirmed - lots of Horween Cordovan Cognac Shells have been ordered and ready to start the crafting process...

    I will post some pictures when the AS Miller & AS Benson mtos are progressing.

    Any questions, let me know but thank you for your orders and your co-operation!!

    I have a good feeling that our MTO will look very much like the bal boot in this pic... except ours will be shell. :slayer:

    Boots look like this but with an Austerity wing tip toe and the side panel is just a straight horizontal finish and does not have the curve (what the hell is the technical term for the 'curve' thing?)

    AFPoS is very open to MTO orders so if you have an idea and have I think 6 (Julian, please correct me if anything changes) orders with the same style, you're set!

    Yes, 6 pairs minimum order for any AS mto on any AS Exclusive or AS Handgrade style done to AS Exclusive specification is now possible.

    A Wholecut is definitely possible!
