    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.

    Good morning, all.

    I recently came upon this brand but I know nothing about it. Does anyone have information on it? How's the quality? How are they made?

    Thank you!

    Thanks, but I see that thread is moderated, if you will, by the company's management. I wanted some off-the-record information. You know, I don't expect the owners to give me an honest answer about the quality. SFer's on the other hand, you guys are a reliable bunch. So, anyone?

    I assume you're referring to the loafers. They copy the look of Belgian Shoes at a much nicer price point. Unbel wrote about them here. Sky Valet carries them in DC, and I have been tempted to buy at full price. Carson's sale price was a steal, but it appears that the loafers are back to full price.

    Wow. But I am not as interested in the loafers as I am in the shoes...

    Update: I visited their store today and pretty much bought out all their shoes and slippers that were on clearance. Expect to see them in my F/S thread in the coming days....

    Review: the shoes are gorgeous. The store is really cool and the staff is helpful and friendly. Overall five stars!

    Hi. Since it's UK sizing, I'd go up about half a size. Thus, the pair of Bow Tie shoes I'm selling here is marked 7UK, but I'm selling them as 7.5 US.
