    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    List of remaining sample shoes are below. Both the 10 and 10.5 Arrans are gone. Special shout out to the Hove in brown cordovan. A half size larger and they would've been mine. :fu:

    Really? Probably a communication issue as I got that list about a week after your enquiry. Unless Dean is sending me a box of rocks.:paranoia:

    Well that sucks for me, as I was pretty interested in getting something. I was surprised that Dean did not respond to my message (it was someone else), so I'd tend to believe him over whoever responded to my inquiry.

    What's the best way to contact them? V Chestnut Grosvenor may be an interesting pickup at a good price...

    Yeah ... ever since discovering Meccariello and Bestetti, and since G&G opened their store on Savile Row where I could try on actual production shoes instead of trial pairs, I've finally confronted the rather embarrassing (and extremely financially/emotionally painful) reality that my entire G&G collection is a size too big.

    :facepalm: :embar: :confused: :fu: :fu: :fu: :fu: :fu: :fu: :cry:

    SO ... I am beginning to embark on a quest of rebuilding/replacing with proper-fitting shoes. Starting with these beauties. A few posts back I had my circle - I'll see about selling those off as well.

    There you have it, guys. Be gentle with me, I'm very emotionally fragile at this difficult time. Breaking up is never easy.

    Thanks, it's depressing to so many of fine shoes that do not fit.
    I was hoping to see Wigmore there in size 10.5. Wigmore on TG73 last is my only G&G mistake. I could not fit in my usual G&G size so I went a half a size up but now they are too long.
