    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 agree!!
    I can't wait to see it! The black and grey is classy but still stands out as an amazing spectator style.

    That's what I'm afraid of. Feeling bad whenever I see them for no other reason than knowing there is a flaw. Which is a 70:30 at the moment. Either way, will (need to) make that final call in the next few days.

    They are lovely. Congrats.

    Did you request the G&G stamp on the inner heel rather than the stylized Deco writing?

    Interestingly enough I got similar experience as @Steven Cash 's.

    When getting a response of Dean, eventhough I was unimpressed/unhappy, I thought that I was probably overly demanding/perfectionist since everyone else had positive experience with him.

    (you know what I mean, the first time you paid such amount of money for an item that you used to pay much less , your expectation will be set very high)

    Since that accident, I am actually still admiring the design of the shoes/last, but I have less and less confident on the making of the shoes. I decided to only buy when I can try on and feel the shoes .

    I guess it is just a common problem when businesses grow and market will adjust accordingly.

    @Steven Cash

    Thanks for sharing. Only in doing that can we get a feel of the matter at hand and possibly influence something.
    And I'm definitely interested in pics of the misalignment. If on the same boot and side it might indicate a flaw in the pattern, which in turn should be an easy fix going forward.
    Mine came from the same source and no flaw in handling my issue by them whatsoever.

    Suffice to say will also check the inner finish closely next.

    Shame that SkoAB discontinues EG. All my 5 pairs are flawless and just perfect. When looking at StC I have my reservations regards finish and leather quality.

    @NewStart
    Fully with you, when paying that kind of money, perfection is a must, simply mandatory. It can't be that the outcome is anything but. That's simply my expectation. If a flaw is revealed in due course, fair compensation should be offered, from reasonable discount to full refund. I would think that's common sense and standard everywhere.

    PS: Need to add that I have a pair of Ishams, single MTO from earlier in the year, and they are beauties.

    Ttown are you sure those are deco? That looks a lot like the tg73 to me and those shoe trees aren't the deco shoe trees that I'm used to seeing. I could be way off but just curious

    Yes sir those are deco, gatsby is only made in deco last in a Mto. Tree are not color full like red or black because those options are only available to you in London store. If you get them in state that option is not given for some reason. This is what I was told not an expert & box said deco :D
