    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.

    I just bought a pair of Wolverine Montague's and love them. My only complaint is that I assumed all the Goodyear welted Wolverines were made in the USA but these
    are made in China. Aside from that, the construction appears the same as the regular 1000 mile boots. I had to size down 1 whole size just
    like the regular ones and they fit like a glove. The leather is Horween and is beautiful and will definitely patina well. The boot is also sleeker in the
    vamp so it ought to not wrinkle as much as other chelsea boots (RM Williams).

    pics of mine are below

    Hope it's alright to quote this post from 2008. The JLP Brooklands is fab. The salesman (Jermyn Street) said they'd stopped making it, then ushered me to the door, right in the middle of a discussion we were having about the Battle of Waterloo. Still don't know whether he was lying, or just didn't like me (hard to believe). The G&G Chelsea is also fab. Lear

    Those look outstanding. As someone else put it, there's just something about Vass suede that screams handmade. That last suits it particularly well. I've really started to appreciate the P2 since getting a pair. It's very well proportioned to my eye, and extremely versatile.

    P2 is underrated in the current craze for snouty shoes.

    Agreed that the P2 is a great looking last. It's quite elegant in real life. Hopefully a 43.5 will fit me. Experimenting with an F last in that size first.

    A last should be chosen because of how it fits.
