1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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 might be down for that tanker—antique storm welt, Dainite, Oscar/Soller last—but in black calf or black pebbled grain. Any chance to get it with 7-8 brass eyelets?

    Of course, I'd prefer this in black shell. I've wanted a black shell tanker with antique welt for ages :(

    Why do you have to rub it in.
    I wanted shell jodhpurs, and I missed this run.
    Now no one will do them because they have a high failure rate.

    I definitely want another pair as this one is sized a half size big. Maybe Meermin or St. C would do it?

    I have confirmation from Meermin and St C.
    The design is different though.
    I got a ballpark price from St C at ~2500 and Meermin was ~750

    Yeah the carmina version is optimal, maybe Carmina will change their mind in future?

    Thanks to @RogerP for encouraging me to rummage through my closet this morning. Too bad I can't do them justice like his photos do.

    Skoaktiebolaget shows a brown museum calf oxford, but it seems like sharing same source with Meermin. May get interested if they can buy navy museum.

    BTW, good news is...

    ^ what is Carmina even trying to say? The "No, MTOs are accepted on Cordovan leather" could mean a few different things. I don't see any reason for optimism there.

    Quote:I was speaking with a Carmina retailer last week and I was given to understand that at present, Carmina simply isn't accepting shell orders of any kind from their retailers or anybody else. So if I understood that correctly, MTO, GMTO would make no difference. What retailers have in stock at present (which includes orders previously accepted but not yet delivered) and whatever Carmina makes available directly through their web site will define the available shell options going forward until they say otherwise.

    So you are saying instead of "No, MTOs are accepted..." this should read "No MTOs are accepted..." What a difference a tiny fraction of an inch can make...

    I really don't know what they mean -- I think there may be some language issues at play. It is confusing and - based on the recent announcements - I'd put very little stock in an ambiguous, grammatically dubious IG remark. I doubt the shell shortage, so recently announced, has miraculously ended. If it did, I doubt we'd all learn of it on IG before the retailers knew. I could be wrong tho...
