    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.

    The Saphir No. 6 (Navy) worked a treat on these....(excuse the shitty phone pics). I will get some daylight shots and spend more than 5 minutes polishing...

    Received my Vintage Cherry St. James II from Nick at Bespoke from the sale. I got them a lot quicker than I anticipated since they were already out of stock when I ordered. I was honestly blown away with the quality. Let's just say I'll be placing another order with Nick in the near future. I'm thinking of picking up the Vintage Rioja Canterbury.

    That navy polish is a force, I'm glad it worked out. Can't wait for some daylight pics :lurk:

    Does the bleaching for black deco calf leave brown or grey tones? For example JubeiSpiegel's wigmores:

    I can tell you that it looks like a muted red/brown that is showing up from underneath:

    I will try to take a pick of it under direct sunlight later for you.

    I think we should give Nick ideas for fee-free monthly MTO. I am thinking about something in black pin grain? Anybody has any other suggestion?

    I would, but I'm holding off give any ideas until I finish my current MTO :(

    I would be interested in a black calf Sinatra on the TG73 last in the future though. Should be the last black shoe that I will need...

    The more pictures I see of it, the more stunning it gets. Was there an upcharge for getting deco calf on your boots?

    Flake...it just seems to work out that way for me. Fit is such a personal thing as evidenced by so many threads. All of my G&G outside of 2 pair of loafers on the KN14 last are boots in DG70, MH71 and TG73....I do have flat feet and maybe the extra half size up helps in the toebox for me. I think I fall between sizes anyway so in boots I can get away with it. So I wear 10.5UK in the boots and 10UK in my loafers. You'll only really know once you try them on for yourself.
