    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.

    His supplier told him that, unlike typical patent leather, this old patent leather needs to be maintained like regular leather with creams and what not.

    Picked up my pair from Marquess yesterday. Very happy with the fit and result of these.

    Lovely stuff. Shoji's a good friend of a good friend over in Japan, so I'm always glad to hear he's doing well. He's an honourable fellow though from what I gather, and wouldn't show a you anything he wasn't happy with himself.

    Shoji is very nice to work with. The leather is an old stock freudenberg, and it was extremely nice and smooth. Can't wait to wear them and to see if I need any changes for the next.

    Looks spectacular. Almond Freudenberg has an aged chestnut leather feel to me. Congrats with your new Marquess!

    Yes the Japanese have taken the craft to a whole new level- the finishing is just spectacular. I get the same feeling of awe in this thread as i did when I first saw high end (C&J) shoes
