    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.

    The finish... involving perfect sewing is what I like about Spigola. [COLOR=A74345][​IMG] [/COLOR] These look very 1920s USA. I would like to see them from above.

    Great photo as always! Nice original buckles! I also love color / texture of the leather. Looks like horse-hide to me.

    A nice little picture of Enzo Bonafe, his son Massimo, with Yohei Fukuda, during a reception party (for Bonafe) held at Fukuda's showroom.

    Winter sales in Japan usually starts right after the New Year, and first up on my calendar (and worthy of mention) is the annual Guild Family Sale! (1/2~1/3) @ Guild Ginza Store

    Bespoke, Semi-Bespoke shoes, and leather accessories (briefcase etc...) SAMPLES would be offered at 30%~50% off!

    You have a nice collection of Llama skin shoes! Still annoyed that none of the UK makers can get a hold of any.....

    Not exactly related to shoes, but Nakata Hanger, the maker of some of the most beautiful (and most expensive) wooden hangers in the world, is starting their annual sale today (12/26). Their 'fukubukuro' sets are basically 50% off retail. Highly recommended!
