    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'll go on the record and say your vintage roja boots that you have are hands down the most beautiful shoes/boots/footwear/whateveryouwanttocallit I've seen, Spoo. Seriously.

    These English shoes in general takes a lot of time for first polish. I had spend around an hour and half for the first full treatment (removing polish, colour cream, wax polish, brush at intervals)

    So you still have to wait the 4-6 months to get the shoes?

    I'm confused now, how is this MTO then, if I can't order in my size? Was it a special make-up order placed in bulk, in assorted regular sizes? In that case, i doubt they carry G width... :confused:

    i believe this sounds correct, but if he does only MTO its odd he would have so much leftover that people didnt come through on. he must do some RTW, and MTO is just the name of his shop. just like bespoke england does RTW along with MTO and bespoke.
