Stilmacher has sold a lot of stuff, and I've heard numerous complaints about him being late, but never one about him failing to deliver. I always just figured his lifestyle as the heir some sort of Bavarian royal fortune got in the way of his "follow-through." I mean, you're on the Autobahn in your Alpina, headed for the post office to send some guy his Lobbs, when the model / wayward princess in the back suddenly suggests that you pull over and watch her snort coke off the even hotter girl you sprung from Le Rosey less than a week ago. What do you do? It's easy to forget about the shoes. Seriously, I don't know if the Stilmacher lifestyle is real or just bullshit, but I wouldn't worry - I think you'll eventually get your stuff. I've suspected that the delays I heard about were the result of him acting as a middle-man and selling stuff he didn't necessarily have in hand at the time - he has to go pick it up before he can ship it. That's just a guess on my part, with no factual basis at all, so TIFWIW.
