1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Well boys, from my mouth to gods ears, our shippment is on the way. I just bout a few hundred pairs this morning, now lets see if they get here. Please don't call me until I have posted the styles and the sizes etc on our site, there will be a special page set-up for the shoes, with picks and sizing available, and all transactions will be handled on-line to make the buying easier and quicker. Please just give me time to get them in, with all hope, and sort them and photo the batch and put them up. Following is the link you can follow to keep up to date, and when they are on I will let everyone know. The price this time around is going to be $250, but the batch is supposedly 95% D width, and all pretty current inventory. We will see.

    Maybe I should forget Styleforum is back online... like anyone reading this thread actually needs any more shoes...

    P.S. Wow, my signature reverted back to its vintage July 05 form. Sadly, I think I've added about six pairs since the Cenci purchase.

    They both missed the first wave of Grenson hysteria. This should prove interesting. [​IMG]

    Perfect. I thought someone revived a thread before the conversion.

    I am glad I am not the same size as Aportnoy or Sysdoc.

    My understanding is they are Masterpieces.....we will see.
    My understanding has been that Grenson stopped production of shoes bearing the Masterpiece name in their own offerings (although evidently agreeing to continue production of shoes of this quality rebranded for certain retailers like Paul Stuart). Thus, if the shoes coming have the Grenson name on them, it will be surprising if they are Masterpieces. Pediwear now refer to a "new Grenson range," with shoes that look to be at the quality-level of the older Footmaster line, a line no longer appearing by that name, although the lower-quality Feathermasters appear to be still available. On Grenson's own website, they no longer use the Footmaster name, referring to shoes of this quality as only Grenson shoes (although the Feathermasters are identified by name), and Shoes Direct (another distributor like Pediwear) follow the same practice.

    This isn't a 'regular' order. In fact, Grenson discontinuing the Masterpiece line only hightens the likelihood that these are Masterpieces.

    Our understanding is the same as they were before, re-labled PS return inventory...they are supposedly Masterpiece quality.
