    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.

    Bloody hell. Lesson learned here. I queued for well over an hour when arriving just after opening time. Still, can't complain as I did have a successful visit.

    Nice pick-ups! I really like the Grant but I have a pair of Wigmores and the toe pattern is just too similar. I'm a big fan of the Austerity brugue so I'm definitely jealous. :)

    Very quiet. Had a chance to chat with Dean G and Justin. This morning was just crazy. An hour queue for me.

    Both of those are absolutely fantastic, I'm extremely jealous. Those Arran's with double sole are perfection. :slayer:

    If the price was right I'd be down. I don't have a PTB (although those aren't really bluchers).

    Is the chestnut hatch grain really orangey? I generally hate orange tans but that one looks like a rich lighter brown with more red than orange if that makes any sense. Might just be the lighting.

    8.5E. Dean thought they would stretch and also offered to stretch them for me so think I'm holding on to them. The Mrs loves them for some reason...

    I think the question should be, why wouldn't she love them [​IMG] Seeing all these pictures makes me even more annoyed that I won't be back in London until Monday, worst timing ever!

    Went back today as I heard a rumour Timothy Everest had restocked.

    Thought that whilst I was there I'd check out what was left in the G&G room... and ended up buying another pair.

    Will post a new picture a bit later when I get home but to whet your whistle, they're a pair of Mayfair double monks in vintage cherry on the TG73.

    As an FYI there are still some shoes left and some absolute gems in 8 - 8.5 too - would love to be the owner of the Rothschild in midnight blue that hadn't found a home yet - this was an 8.5E (unfortunately just a little too tight for my feet).

    Bought a couple of pieces from Everest too. No suits, which is what I was hoping for but did get another white shirt, camel jacket and bespoke trousers.
