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.

    Cheers,

    - Upper: Vegetable-tanned cow leather

    - Made in Japan

    The first photos above were taken out of the box. The subsequent pictures represent the loafers presently.

    Purchased from Blue Button Workshop a month ago. They have seen < 5 wears outside, but I have put some effort into having them stretched, to no avail. There are therefore some standard signs of initial wear.

    I have not applied any conditioner or other product to these shoes. They will darken with both wear and after application of such agents.

    Size 6 fits ~10-10.5 US out of the box. I am normally ~11D US in loafers and 11.5D US in dress shoes and these are still slightly too short for me. I would therefore say they are suited for someone who would normally wear a 10.5-10.75D in loafers or 11-11.25D in dress shoes.

    These are not Chromexcel or calf leather and will not stretch the same. I have found they only stretch slightly with wear and quickly return to their original size when not worn.

    These retail at around $600.
    Selling for $260 shipped US
    Contact for international.
