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.

    All, I have sent a PM to all people that I knew were interested in the Whiskey Skye GMTO. If you are interested and you DID NOT get a PM, please notify me immediately, so I can send you all the relevant information.

    Price is £700 (with VAT) or £562.50 (without VAT - People in US)... £30 for shipping plus if shoe trees are desired, they are an additional £60 (with VAT) or £50 (without VAT)... So for US people, the shoes will be approximately, £592.50 (~$975) shipped.

    The specifications would be as follows - if you want to try and veto a decision, please let me know.
    • Crockett & Jones Skye 2 Wingtip Boot
    • Last: 335
    • Upper: Whiskey Shell Cordovan
    • Sole: Double Leather Sole
    • Eyelets: 4 Exposed Brown Metal + 4 Brown Metal Hooks (Similar to Lindricks)
    • Welt: Storm - Possibly flat if possible
    • Edging: Antique

    Have a good Tuesday!

    -Mike

    Justin,

    The Skye is Crockett and Jones' Shortwing Boot. We are going to be doing it in Whiskey Shell Cordovan.

    The Harlech is their Cap Toe Boot and I got a pair from the recent batch (came in probably a month ago).

    Their info page on the Skye:

    I am going to be sending out instructions here today with regards to getting into contact with Lauren at C&J to get this rolling to the next step!

    If anyone else is interested, PM me ASAP so that we can add you in as it appears that these will be getting done! :-D
