    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 had them make this shoe without going bespoke http://centipede.web.fc2.com/gandg3.html

    Use the Kent model as the base and remove the medallion. Then ask for imitation brogueing and punching along the apron. I added steel eyelets and asked to remove the single stitching along the throat

    This does not require a pattern change...thus it can be done via the MTO

    I've found this. Its the Warwick. Looks close? Oh! seems to have only 5 eyelets. Also would need to change the last for a sleeker look.

    Since I dont have any loafers for casual wear I think i'll go for ''Antibes'' in cherry for my next pair. Just need to save up some cash [​IMG] Are they made of calf or pigskin?
    Anyone here who has them? So I can see them on, that would be great.

    Nick and Knezz...I had forgotten about the Warwick...but I still like it without the brogueing/punching along the throat and top line...thus I had used the Kent as my base

    thankfully not available in my size - I can think of a million ways to wear those piggies.

    Really? I prefer calf leather. Why do you like it in pig?

    That shoe looks great for casual wear and the pigskin adds more 'informal' texture and interest.

    +1. Saw them in person a cpl of weeks ago and have been considering them since. I think they'd be better a couple of shades lighter, but still haven't decided.
