    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.

    Can anyone tell me what Saphir color is best for using with Vintage Rioja? Just dropped the hammer on a pair of Wigmores in that color.

    Here are clearer pictures of my Girling shoes with a somewhat racy lining.

    Nick of Bespoke England is a real gentleman who updated me periodically on the status of my order, provided advice on how different leather colours will match, and is shockingly prompt in his e-mail replies. Seems really passionate about what he's doing.

    I realized that one probably has to size down on the lazy man shoes though. I orderd my usual Girling size but realized I should have sized down by 1/2. Nothing insoles won't help resolve however.

    Cool to know that you size down on G&G sizes, I often need to size up for G&G in relation to other usual British suspects.

    I have reasonably worn in my hatchgrain as well, you shall see it in the flesh very soon :slayer:

    I size up too. But for the Lazy man, it's different. I think because of the elastic gussets. You went to Uppingham to visit Bespoke England? How was the place? A lot of Girlings there? :nodding::rolleyes:
