    Just received my Superga sneakers today. The communication and shipping have been excellent. I followed sizing suggestions that they fit similar to Nikes, Addidas, etc., but find them a generous half size+ too large. I wouldn't wear them because they would be loose.

    How does Massdrop account for a need for a different size? Mine are marked Euro 45, USA 11.5, UK 10.5. I probably need a USA 11, UK 10.

    Generally speaking, we don't do exchanges - since we order exactly what we need for each group buy and no more to keep costs low, there's generally no more stock to exchange with. That said, if you have any issues with your order don't hesitate to reach out to customer support. PM if you have any other questions!

    Another drop of interest for Styleforumites -

    We recently started working with the US distributor of Loake 1880, and are running the Loake Kempton suede chukka at over 30% off right now. Those that are familiar with Loake are familiar with the high value the brand offers, as well as the recent "Loake embargo" that went into effect this year - UK-based retailers like Pediwear and Herring no longer ship Loake to the US, so this price is pretty dang good given the new MSRP structure.

    If this drop goes well, hopefully we can offer many more styles of Loake in the future!

    All of time and space, everything that ever was or
    Any chance of these key cases coming back anytime soon? I'd be interested as the color I want is sold out everywhere. Double interested if you could work a special run with brass hardware.

    Also wouldn't mind seeing the Keng Wang folding umbrellas return.

    No plans for the key cases in the immediate future, but I'd like to think we could bring those back at some point. I'll look into it. They're great - I use my natural shell one every day.

    I think we'll have both the KW folding and solid stick umbrellas up in the coming month or two.

    Here's something else I'd love to get some opinions on -

    As some of you know, we've worked with Justin of J. Fitzpatrick a couple of times, and have had some great runs of his classic Magnolia oxford. We're putting together another MTO run of his shoes soon, this time in his popular single monk style, the Fauntleroy. My question for you folks is this - we're going to do black calf and brown suede for sure, but we can potentially offer one more. Would you rather see dark brown museum calf or gold museum calf?

    A flashy shoe needs a flashy color! Go for gold.

    Not that I'm holding out hope, but any chance of width options?

    I'm not 100% sure, but we were able to offer a wide fitting with our last JF drop and I'm hopeful that we can do the same here. We just need to make sure that everything went as expected during the last run.

    Not sure that style will attract a ton of buyers. His Laurelhurst loafer on the other hand, given the season as well, certainly will. Maybe I just want loafers though...

    Definitely a dark brown museum calf option! That would be fantastic

    That single monk is nice, I look forward to seeing it in suede. @brillopad, what shade of brown suede are we looking at?

    Thanks for the input, guys.

    Also, in shoe-related news: we're doing a cool MTO run of Rider Boot's Duldalk in a bunch of cool makeups. You can see the drop here.

    Hey @brillopad, have you considered offering Saphir brush sets? I've gotten all of my polish from you, and now I just need some brushes. Maybe a couple polishing brushes and some daubers?

    Saphir branded brushes are way overpriced because of (you guessed it) branding. HangerProject brand, TheShoeSnob brand, even Kiwi brushes bought on Amazon work well.

    I like the hanger project becauset hey have a goat hair (very soft bristles, great for shine) brush for $16. Wish I knew that before spending $45 on a Burgol one from Skoak.
