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.

    @BackInTheJox


    I didn't hear back from Lauren today. I wonder if she was off since she's always been super responsive. Hopefully I'll hear back from her tomorrow regarding additional spec options and re moving forward with the order.

    So far I haven't heard from anyone that they want to leave the group (except @bcloudy had offered to switch places with @BackInTheJox ). I will try to send out PM's to everyone as well to make sure. Some of you did reply here in the forum, but I'd like to touch base with all participants individually anyway.

    Looking forward to a smooth and efficient GMTO!!

    If the offer from @bcloudy is still good, I will accept his switch and take a spot among the hallowed 12.

    Yes, I believe Lauren is on vacation right now. I think she's back next week.

    Ok good to know. Thanks.

    To everyone on the Lindrick GMTO:

    Assuming Lauren is back next week, let's try to get this thing finalized as soon as possible. I believe everyone will have to contact her individually and provide their sizes, (individual specs if available), shipping info, and payment info. Let's aim to have everyone's info submitted by the end of next week (or sooner).
    Thanks in advance to all of the awesome participants!

    Import Tax / Shipping question:
    I've heard that shipments coming in to the USA that are worth less than $800 are not subject to the import tax. However, I personally have received shipments (from Spain and Germany) that were less than $800 value and I was charged tax by the carrier (DHL and UPS). Can someone clarify? My dilemma is that if I am part of 2 GMTO's, I can save a bit on shipping costs by combining shipping. However, by combining the shipping I am bringing up the value of the package to above $800. In that case I'll be losing more in taxes than I will be saving in shipping. So if someone can clarify I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

    The $800 limit has only been around since March.
    Previous GMTOs have been shipped with a customer friendly declaration.
    But I plan to have my orders shipped separate just to be sure to stay under the $800 limit.

    Pretty sure this is a standard model? I saw them on sale recently. Forget where, but I think it was posted in the C&J thread earlier this week.

    Really? Cool... couldn't find them in snuff on the C&J website in their US or UK model lists. @alexSF mentioned in the Quintessential C&J thread that this was an MTO that he did (photo was taken from his post regarding it)

    Standard colour for the Cavendish is Polo Brown Suede which is more reddish,
    Snuff is more yellowish,
    Tobacco is also another colour and it's slightly lighter than Snuff.

    What is the name for the standard RL (CJ) Marlow wingtip edge/sole color? I think of "antique" (which is what's chosen for the current Lindrick and Warlow) as a sort of lighter color, whereas the stock Marlows seem to have a darker brown edge. Or are they the same thing?

    There's some C&Js on sale at Frans Boone. Not sure if that's what you're talking about.

    Yep, that was it. Looks like it's the Vincent, not the Cavendish. Both are pretty nice though.
