1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    Cheers,

    Well you can't satisfy everyone. :) The MTO fee is only 15% and about 3 months production time so hopefully this will encourage a lot of people to chose this path.

    Hopefully you'll change your mind once you see the finished models [​IMG] Otherwise, as Leaves mentioned, MTO surcharge is only 15%.

    I recognize the button boots that one can find at Leffot.

    Will the Button boots come with hooks to do-up the buttons?

    Yes Bonafé makes the Aubercy button boots although I'm unsure if there are any design features that set the original Bonafé button boots apart from Aubercy's.


    Yes they include a do-up hook.

    Very interested in mto, any thoughts or info on lasts? Specifically wide fittings.

    Hi Wallcloud, we only did a quick fit in the factory, we'll wait until we get our stock in April and post a fitting guide then, after we have tried out the lasts more extensively. We're getting the 946 (chiseled, I think it's this last that the Austerity Brogue above in the picture is made up on) and 363 (round) lasts. We'll post a fitting guide once we receive stock.

    Hopefully there's more people on SF who could lend some insight?

    The round 363 last is actually the most beautiful round last I've ever seen. Perfectly balanced IMO. It reminds me a little of the EG 82-last.

    I have some interest in the button boot, and I'm glad you chose the Black and Grey.


    However because it is a button boot, how hard is it to get a good fit? You wouldn't really have the flexibility like you do with laces? Specifically either a bit tighter or a bit looser like you can with laces.

    Sorry, only the one we posted!

    This is a new model for us, as soon as we receive our stock we will try them out to be able to help you with fitting as best we can. I can't imagine it would be much different to lace-ups though.
