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,

    Quote:Hope to OP sees this as well but I picked up some shell Daltons in 12C off the shoebank earlier this year (however slightly to narrow) but a C width Dalton shouldn't incur an MTO fee if thats what you were wondering. They have the last so it would just be putting in an order and it may take a few weeks.

    I'm not certain about this. My understanding is that if you want a shoe in a width not specifically available on their site, it's an MTO. The Connecticut Ave store in DC quoted me "for a additional fee of $125.00, the Copley could be made in a size 14 AA" four years ago.

    That said, a few months later they also wrote "I have just been informed that the bayfield boot can not be made in a size 14 2A" but I'm wearing 'em right now. ;) It may depend on whom you speak with at the company.

    My concern is I had one shoe made in a size not originally offered and it was a disaster so I am jaded...

    Maiden voyage of these bourbon Dalton seconds I picked up a few weeks ago.

    Also picked up some black shell Leeds and Dundees last night from the sale.

    I'm a 7D in Macneils - would I take the same size in the Leeds? These would be my first pair of shell shoes.

    Quote:Huh, I mean I guess thats plausble. Just wouldn't make sense to charge an MTO just for a size. Leathers and features sure. If that was the case and I had to have that size I'd have lots of even more customized shoes.

    Off-sizes require them to cut and sew uppers they didn't already have in stock or weren't planning on making. Maybe $125 more is a bit much, but it certainly "costs" them more to make you a special size.

    Typically $45 and also expect to pay about $25 from FedEx when it arrives.

    from my experience, shell has a looser fit. The Leeds also fit looser than the Macneils, so you could even be a 6.5. My Macneils in shell 9D are almost too loose compared to my calf ones. Same with the Kenwoods, which I will have up for sale.

    I purchased some Burgundy Cordovan Cambridges in 8.5D to potentially replace my Merlot Calf McAllisters. I tried for some Dark Brown Cordovan Dundees in 9D, but it sounded like they weren't in good enough condition to try.

    In my size I'm only seeing (a) loafers (which I don't buy) and (b) stuff I already have. I would have been sorely tempted by a pair of burgundy shell Bradleys, but no luck.

    is that 25 plus taxes and duties? or the 25 was all that was due on delivery? also do you know if the price goes down with multiple shoes or is it flat?

    I don't want to count any chickens before they hatch, but I'm attempting a legendary KOP... I don't expect I'll have much news on it until tomorrow, though.
