    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.

    They are not seamless, Tony has made me 2 pairs of seamless shoes already. The skin gets stretched in the process so I am doing it anymore

    I love them! What's that colour? I assume that they're bespoke but colour is presumeably discussed with reference to the same swatches as used for MTO so is it possible to give an approximate reference point from the MTO options?

    Tony calls this colour Brandy, to create a mottled look the colour is stripped back, I assume with alcohol

    I don't believe the same colour is available MTO

    Thanks. The base colour does seem to be available in MTO if it's the same Brandy.

    I went to the Bespoke England site and used the MTO ordering tool on Nick's site; I took it as far as "Step 4 - Pick your colour" and "Brandy Calf" is the third option on the colour picker (in between "Bordeaux Calf" and "Burgundy Calf"). I suspect that if they're willing to do it at all then on MTO there might be a surcharge for the extra labour involved in getting the mottled look, and I'm sure that for bespoke they are more picky about selecting the absolute best hide they have available, but if it is the same Brandy then we MTO customers might be able to get close to the colour.
