    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.

    I have some redundant pics from the Leffot GG trunk show yesterday, hopefully I can post them before the end of the night.

    Leffot people were very nice, and Dean is a class act. it is too bad that I am at my MTO shoe quota for the year (so I hope), but there is a lot of inspiration to see at the GG show.

    I proclaim next year the year of the the chukka. All my MTO's will be chukkas next year. Probably two Arran's, and two EG Silverstones... :slayer:

    and that Burnham, the best boot overall.

    Have you guys decided on specs for G&G Burnham through Skoak. I have not heard any updates yet.

    I handled the Burnham in Vintage Oak at Bergdorf and it is an incredibly light and beautiful boot. If it ever does get going, i'm going to be in trouble. I was hoping to be done with MTOs for the year... :decisions:

    I take E width so I do not count yet. I am not in hurry though if you guys decide to bring that boot as part of the stock you can count on me I am planning on acquiring one eventually so long is it is on the MH71 last.

    It is light indeed, I like it better than derby or balmoral boots.

    Thanks! The U isn't the perfect last for me since the instep in high but the high closure of the chukka makes it work. I still want to try the Arran though although I'm not a big fan of the unlined ankle portion (although I know it helps with flexibility).

    If you want something specific let me know and I'll try to take some later. So has anyone had to resole their G&G's yet? I'm curious to see before and after pics!
