    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.

    Does EG do the wavy side panel or are GG and AS the only two that typically do bal boots with that style?

    GGs Canterbury is an 8 eyelet but I really prefer the EG Shannon's 9 - Would GG consider making it a 9 on MTO or would you really need to go for bespoke to personalise that much? I much prefer GG's solework and would never have the money to go EG top drawer.

    Why 9? Would you want a higher boot shaft or just more lace holes?

    Why, I believe Alfred Sargent (AS) and A Fine Pair of Shoes (AFPoS) have a MTO and only have 1 or 2 slots left. :)

    the canterbury boots are great but I think the wigmore is in a class of its own; sexy last, flat leather outsole, textured shaft. all win

    Higher boot shaft (if that is the correct term) I just find it more interesting with 9 eyelets is all - though I do think the Wigmore is perfect

    I wonder if someone signed up for the Alfred Sargent/AFPoS shell bal boot MTO? Would be a nice surprise to hear that it's a go!

    yeah, i would say they are very comprable to one another. IME, G&G seems to uses a softer, more comfortable leather so the G&Gs fit me better. both are on the narrow side
