1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    MH71 i think is the best option for the Westminsters in VO - bit more forgiving than the TG73

    these look fantastic. Definitely keepers. More I see the 70 more I like it: v. similar to Vass F from above, tho in profile the toe box looks lower

    Do they fit TTS? and u know does Bespoke England offer a toe tap option? shame to see them wear

    Yep, plenty of styles close to mine but with captoe, St James I and II, Hughes, Harrow, Kensington etc

    They do fit true to size. I was a bit worried having read stuff here about them being a little tight but I am a 10.5E in Lobb, AS, C&J and EG and these (10.5E as well) fit great. A little more snug than my others in the body of the shoe but not tight or uncomfortable anywhere and no pinching at all in the toe box, I can move all my toes up and down. I think when they soften up with wear a bit they could well be my best fitting shoes

    Great picks! Seems like you prefer MH71 and some of those exotic bespoke lasts.

    what i like is not so much the last shape, thro on some of them it is as they are my shoes, but the overall look or the design, also something/ shoe for every occasion that i might find my next pairs are very simple

    actually, the shilouette is one of the reasons english shoes don't do it for me, anyway.

    So yeah, squeaky G&G heels... Anybody have this issue? What can I do about it? It feels like it is the insoles. Do they just need breaking in?
