    As Unipair Guy just posted above, they ship to the US and they have some very nice looking women's makeups. Hopefully when my financial situation stabilizes a bit, I will pick something up from them for the wife.

    Also, Epaulet has a small amount of stock left and it's significantly marked down. Sizes are limited, but you can pick some up for a steal if they still have the size you're looking for.

    I originally purchase the 922 dark brown wingtips in a 7 UK. I subsequently found they were 1/2 a size too big, but I also wanted to purchase the burgundy captoes Mr Yoo offers on his site. He wisely proposed that I wait to receive the burgundy captoes in a size 6.5 UK, so I can compare, then make adjustments for the size of the wingtips accordingly.

    I'll let you know the fit once they arrive if you're interested? Did you find going down the extra 1/2 size helped?

    Edit: never mind wrong boot, sry!

    I could definitely see myself getting in on a MTO for those.

    We do all we can to maintain then but it's the marks of being worn that give the shoes their character.

    If there are white marks after being worn in the rain then so be it. I've not had that experience with any of my shell shoes though.

    Did the dark brown loafers get enough members to go?

    And.. advertising again for the MTO in my signature. I no longer have the money for it thanks to Luxeswap, gentlemensfootwear and Mes Chaussettes Rogues but I'm still in because it's awesome. I'll pull some bills off the money tree.

    Have 3, need 3 more.
