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.

    For anyone's who interested. I thought that it would be nice to put the pictures in the same place.

    Last, AS 53 - Style Name, Carrol.

    The wholecut is named Milton, the Adelaide brogue, Carrol and the loafer, Keats.

    Not sure what this one is (and apologies for the repeat post).

    I've basically lifted these from the "other" site.

    As I gather, they're available now, if you ring the factory directly. I'm sure Clint knows more than I though.

    The brogue is splendid, but why make it in Tan? Crockett & Jones do the Handgrade "Clifford" on the 337 last in that colour.

    Dear All,

    AS Handgrade shall be available for order from the first of March, unless you are planning on seeing me in NYC this week, looking forward to meeting some of you!

    Best, Chay.

    All of the styles are available in a broad range of colours not just the tan, there are also three new lasts, any style can be made on any of the lasts in any fitting so there is quite a degree of flexibility within the range. Best, Chay.

    I like the 53 last!

    I reckon a pair of a 3 tie Derby style with a skin stitched apron in and mid-dark antiqued brown would look the business.

    Actually, I don't know that much (apart from the snippets I've "stolen" from various sources). I guess that you're nearly right about the availabilty as March is only one week from now.

    I see so many lovely shoes on this site, I guess I like what I'm seeing with this manufacturer. Plus, I've had a very good experience with the staff (read Chay). But I'm sure I've already said this over and over and over and over......[​IMG]

    I'll be happy when I get to see them in all colours and styles. Then I'd be able to see what AS has that I haven't got and see whether I can rob the bank to buy any [​IMG] .

    Bris, I think that you could do far worst than confining your feet to Edward Green. But variety is the spice of life.

    Cheers

    How does the price compare to EG and C&J?

    I love that Adelaide punchcap.

    If you see me on the thread you know it's reasonable!

    The price is £450 inclusive of VAT. I have been asked this question elsewhere, I have posted what I wrote below. Thanks for the kind comments all, very much appreciated!
    ............................

    The price is as you suggest introductory and may possibly increase in the future, that said we will always offer value for money. We are driven to making shoes that people enjoy, that's the inspiration.

    All customers who place orders before the end of April shall be guaranteed the same repeat price for one year from date of purchase.

    All the materials used are top quality, from the fine calf's to the oak bark soles there has not nor will there ever be any compromise.
    Customers, as displayed by members of the forums, know their shoes -it would be foolish of ourselves to think otherwise.

    Undoubtedly, our competitors make some wonderful shoes. For people to say our shoes are comparable is flattering and very kind.
    We welcome people to come to their own conclusions on the quality of our shoes and welcome any feedback, good or bad!

    Kind regards,

    Chay.
