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.

    Depending on the price, I could be very interested!

    Would you happen to know what last they are on?

    They are on the 606 last.......shipping to Oz will be expensive, but I'm sure we could work something out. Check your PM!

    you should be able to get a cobbler to take off the heel piece and add an extra layer onto the heel. Should fix it.

    This story just reinforces a lot of the negative comments about EG I have seen made on this thread and others over the years. No way those shoes should have even left the factory.

    Usually TD has a fiddleback. Did he specifically request a non-fiddleback waist?

    What! It is a disgrace that those shoes ever left the factory and a 100 times worse that they don´t refund the original buyer or give him new shoes. My growing interest in EG took a dive right now. Everyone makes mistakes but it´s in the way you handle those that show what you are, as a person or in business.

    He should have sent the TD shoes recorded delivery to Hilary Freeman

    As a EG customer it does concern me, especially as I am thinking about going the mto route for next 2/3 shoes.

    I have had dozens of EGs, the majority MTO and never had a single problem. Those are pretty bad though. I'm shocked that EG won't fix the issue. They have been extremely responsive in the past.

    From my experience, EG have been brilliant; however, those shoes are concerning. Forgot why EG will not accept them back, how it left the EG factory is shocking.

    First, perhaps a hair splitter, but I thought you just paid postage.

    Moving on, the Sandringham issue seems like a rare issue with EG MTO given other experiences here (I've only had EG RTW), let alone a second similar MTO issue experienced by the same original purchaser. You seem to be awfully negative towards EG, e.g.:

    http://www.styleforum.net/t/257353/st-crispins-appreciation-thread/165#post_6011461

    Yet, G&G, being an "English MTO/RTW" brand is ok? I thought they were overrated?

    -and-

    http://www.styleforum.net/t/236162/gaziano-girling-appreciation-shoo-porn-theard/6405#post_6013672

    even though...

    http://www.styleforum.net/t/257353/st-crispins-appreciation-thread/165#post_6011461


    Look, I really don't personally care what shoes you prefer (if fact, I love Saint Crispin's as well)...but as HRoi said:

    So, having gone out of your way to trash EG and, frankly, G&G, what's the deal?

    Mind sharing where you are getting SC's for EG prices? I've found EGs for $1100-1200 and on sale for $650 and up.

    I almost never see SCs on sale and they're $1600 at LeatherSoul.

    I'll just let this fact stand on its own: Leather Soul's latest SC MTO offering, the PC Boot, is $2,300 with lasted trees.

    It's LS MTO.

    SC were structured to produce shoes at or below JL/EG prices, not sure if its still the case after Michael Rollig left in 2009.
