    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.

    That tassel loafer turned out a lot better than I expected. Must. Not. Kop.

    Those things are gorgeous. I'm feeling wrong that I jumped off that train and almost want to preorder.

    That color is just so damn light. And I'm not sure if I'd ever wear them. Unfortunately I'm sure they'd be pointed out as a gimmick if I did wear them.

    Not that they are, just that the layman would think they are. I'm 25 and not many people that are 25, at least in AZ, wear loafers.

    NAMOR is harmless. He probably just hasn't ordered anything in shell in 24 hours and is feeling the bite. :rotflmao:

    I actually kind of agree about the loafers. I really like them in the abstract, but they're really not in my sartorial wheelhouse. There will be lots of other great makeups, so best to wait for something that you know will work for you.

    ^ ha, i spent 4 weeks in the Phoenix/Tempe/Mesa area just last month; only speaking from experience.

    i can wear shell loafers only because the material makes them less "dandy" imo. last year sold two pairs of suede loafer because the combination of material and style made them too difficult to pull off. im 26 and have no problem wearing shell loafers for work

    I will not be wearing loafers of any material or style, even when I'm old and gray.

    I think that's what I decided on. If it was anything like the AS loafers below, I'd go for it. Darker suede and broguing. The Noix suede is too loud for me, and not as versatile.

    Hopefully you're not judging Phoenix off of Mill Ave :)

    Although I guess the more I think about it, the more that might be accurate. $30k millionaires everywhere in Scottsdale and Tempe.

    And that ruby shell sure is purty.

    I can't wait to see the midnight calf oxfords in real life. They really do look like they turned out awesome!

    Update and some new photos!

    Hey guys!

    Apologies for my tardiness here. Thanks again to everyone who preordered the the last batch of shoes that we received. It took a few days to sort through everything, but all invoices should be sent out and shoes/boots should be en-route to everyone who paid the balance. The last batch came out fantastic! Let's start off with some photos:

    BTW - I've got one extra unit of the Chocolate/Chocolate Jodphur boot available in size 10UK. Drop me an email if you're interested!

    Styles in Work and Ruby Shell PTB

    In terms of the last two styles that we put up, the Noix Loafer had plenty of orders and has been submitted already. It should be in work shortly.

    The Loden suede shortwing only garnered three preorders. Anyone else out there interested? If there's no one else, then we'll have to drop that particular style and I'll put through a full refund of all the deposits placed against it.

    And for the last style, as promised, we've got 8 units available to order in the Ruby Shell Cordovan Rain last PTB. Here's the info:

    I received my midnight adelaides yesterday and they're great. They seem to fit very well.

    I think I'm going to have to get those ruby PTBs. You're killing me here. Too many great shoes!

    WoW! That ruby bal boot is really nice and Ruby-ish.. Should be wearing mine once I get off work today, being subtle is not going to be with Ruby shell?

    They're definitely not quite as red as they seem in Mike's photos...until you step into the sun. I put on my pair a few days ago and thought, "Hey, these aren't bright at all!" Then I went outside and thought, "Oh yeah baby, now that's what I'm talking about."

    Seriously, they're like a small signal beacon that you can wear on your feet. I love it.
