    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.

    ^^^ True but they only order smaller sizes. I couldn't wear them anyway.

    Also, I'm still putting together a list for a Modified Kudu Indy. Kudu is a supple and durable leather, very comfortable.

    Largest size in Modified last at Lakota House in Tokyo is: 11. And they'll be happy to put whatever size you want on a special order!

    I'm still in for the ML Kudu Indy.

    Interesting. That really amazes me as Alden told me they need to have a Modified Last pattern for each style and I didn't think there was a loafer pattern. I can't tell for sure that it is on the Modified Last from that angle, but it is certainly not one of the standard Alden loafer lasts and I will take your word for it that it is on the Modified. Maybe it was altered to make it loafer suitable (as you know from bespoke, loafers are on different lasts than a laceup for the same customer). Thanks for posting that.

    Kudu boot first is my vote. I'm one of the weird ones that doesn't do shoes.

    I have enough boots, so I strongly favor shoes. Loafers are difficult to fit, so I favor lace-up shoes.

    Call me boring, but I need more shoes and would love something in shell.

    Heck, I'll go with whatever we can get off the ground, but the Kudu Indy is my favorite.

    Does anyone own a pair of Indy's and another shoe style on the modified last? I was wondering if they fit more or less the same? I have a pair of wing tips (calf) on the modified last that I love, and I'm looking at getting the Indy 403's. Should I get the same exact size and width? Or is there a sleight difference in fit?
    Thanks
