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.

    My EG trees are unstained, I think having colour matched trees would look fantastic

    In this years dressing room project I'm planning on having some shoes on glass shelves as display items and the trees will obviously be pretty visible too.

    I'm off to email about having my shoes redone!

    I never saw these when they were originally posted, did you get these from us, looks like our make up with the single Dainite. Anyways, great pictures. Awesome color reproduction.

    Much appreciated but in the meantime can you tell us in what colors reindeer is available. I am eying Falkirk but I am undecided about the color or leather material.

    Roger, the Westminsters look great.

    The original color was pretty fugly. Maple is perhaps the elusive Band-Aid color Manton once wrote about; it looked like undyed leather with just a hint of burnishing.

    Thanks Leaves! No, they were not bought from you, since your stock was unfortunately exhausted by the time I got my eye on this make-up. [​IMG]However, they are in fact made on a single Dainite sole and with the awesome doak/walnut CC combo. I am in heaven each time I use them.

    Thanks for kicking this off, CT - great history and information. I daresay that the old Lotus' are not a bit poncey.

    Cheers. I guess one good thing that can be said of Maple is that it makes an excellent canvas for any number of different custom looks.

    No problem, I'll try and get a pic at the weekend of the old zug next to modem day country calf so you can understand how hardy the old zug veldts were/are.

    If you search the thread you'll find pics of an old EG pre-Galway veldt boot that I posted, recently sold as part of a clear out. They were zug/Heather gorse...otherwise let me know and I'll try and dig out the pics again...

    No doubt! Less color to strip away before working on the new color. Reminds me of the 'raw' shoes Septième Largeur offers for custom patina work: http://www.septiemelargeur.fr/homme-r-fr.html?couleur=NATUREL&taille=

    Is EG tends to run size bigger?

    I feel G&G UK9E too narrow but 9F in EG a bit big. 8.5F is okay.

    BTW I am waiting for my G&G UK9F Deco green, will reflect

    ^ Depends on what last shape you're referring to. On the topic of widths, EG shoes run narrow, so a D is more like a US E, and an E is more like a US D width. Of course, this is more pronounced on the 82 last than others, such as the 202/606.

    My G&G are more "snug" than my EG in the same size (6.5E)...not enough to size up or down though.
