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.

    I think we can anticipate a lot of these coming after seeing these pics.

    Well, the Balway looks very very good.
    But I'm not sure if this is veldtschoen?
    The construction looks like a regular handwelt?
    My impression was that veldtschoen construction consisted of outward folded uppers like Norwegian, with additional use of both a leather midsole and welt?

    Pretty sure you're right. Might just be a name.

    I'm interested to know though, what leather is being used on the shaft?
    It looks almost hatch grain-ish, but not quite.
    Looks a little like their "inca" grain leather, but not quite.
    Really interesting texture to it.

    Hey that's interesting. I honestly didn't know EB worked with hatch grain. Or at least never seen any of their models in it.
    Do you know where they get their hatch grain from?

    Not sure, I would guess Horween because EB has Horween Shell

    Am proposing a GMTO of the veldtschoen model. We have two already and need two more.

    Upper: Vitello blue with medium burnish
    Shaft: Blue hatch grain
    Last: 74945
    4 eyelets, 4 hooks with brass
    270 deg flat welt
    Black double leather sole with Vibram topy

    GMTO pricing is $690 through Solegarb.

    The final output will essentially be this minus the norvegese stitching:

    Replied to your post in Reddit that I'm in. Any chance that you'd like to retain the norvegese stitching? I know it'll add to the cost, but it looks damn nice.

    They look great, looking forward to some more GMTO's. Need something other than Navy. Reddit guys keep us posted on here.
