1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    Hey, I would like to purchase shoes from Otsuka M-5 and Lifegear Trading Post.
    Do any of you have experiences with either? Thanks

    Also to note..Mr. Tim Little is as of January 2005 the CEO of Grenson
    which I am sure manufactures his own personal line..Grenson's new Rushden
    Range will be in Bloomingdale's in NY and Atlanta and the more upscale Rose
    line will debut at Bergdorf's for fall.

    Wow, centipede, what don't you have tucked away on your site! I never would have imagined such clear historical precedent for the G&G shoe.
    And I especially liked this, the 1905 C&J crocodile derby marked b here: http://centipede.web.fc2.com/CATALOG/OMAKE2/2007.jpg
    Please continue to honor us with your posts.



    The Japanese sure are at the forefront/cutting edge of shoe development.

    I think that Johnston & Murphy should be on this list. Fantastic shoes!

    I respectfully disagree. J&M used to be very good, but they just don't make high-end shoes anymore.

    I am really appreciative of you posting this catalog of links to high end mens shoes. For someone that owns approximately 200, I thought I'd seen it all, but this has really been an eye opening experience to and accessory that I love, especially the images on imageshack.

    It must have taken you quite some time to assemble a listing of this quality. Obviously you share a passion for shoes as well. My hat is off to you and this wonderful contribution to this forum. I'll refer to it time-and-time-again!

    Von Rothbart, it is a honour to have been added to the retailer list! Thank you very much. Thank you very much also to Rjman for having suggested it. I would just make a precisation on the shoes we sell.

    We have two distinct lines:

    - the "Northamptonshire" line which is manufactured, as the name suggest, in Northamptonshire and the styles of which are strictly in the british tradition;

    - the "Grandi Maestri Italiani" ("Great Italian Masters") line which is manufactured in Italy and the styles of which are mostly replicas of Italian bespoke masterpieces of the collections of myself and my partner.

    I would be extremely grateful if you could transfuse this in the reference to our site. On our part we will make our best to insert English in as much as possible descriptions on our site. Kindest regards and thank you very upfront. Fra

    \t Man in need of help Quick!!!

    Recently I was recommended by a Style Forum chatter on the matter of high end shoes. Sky Valet shoes in Georgetown was recommended. I went to check them out and I found them very helpful and a keen knowledge of shoes. He knew more than I had ever known about fitting and leather quality. I ended up with the two above, I liked most. What I need is a senior member in shoe Style land with knowledge of the two to help me decide. This is for formal as well as casual dress.

    P.S. I wasn't able to load the picks. The site is www.skyvalet.com
    \t Under Alfred Sargent and Edward Green

    Thanks for the big help Jamo41

    Since the shoe is a single piece of leather, except for the tounge, the lining also is.

    Truly gorgeous, is there some physical fabrication reason other than the piece of leather was too small that you could not make the tongue out of the one original piece as well?

    Capt Ron,
    Thank you for your support and interest.
    As you can see the quarters are overlapping the tongue, that is the reason why this piece had to be cut out and sewn in separately.

    Yours truly

    I really like that, although I would prefer no toe cap.

    If you take a look at any standard american plain toe blucher, they are in effect wholecuts except they are slit so quarters can be inserted. You could say that the design we normally associate with wholecuts are bals, while this below is the blucher version
