    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.

    [​IMG] My penny loafers got delivered today. They are factory seconds where the suede is "slightly longer than usual" but it must be ever so slightly long because they look brilliant and for £80 delivered I'm more than happy

    I didn't, I would suggest you message seller and ask for postal service.

    The postal route didn't work for me in Canada. Got hit with $70 in duties. YMMV

    That's 40 percent! I would've thought duties would be 30% max...why do I live here

    Oh I should clarify that duty itself was $32, taxes were $27, and handling was $10. But the cost stacks up.

    I also inquired about the shearling boots to meermin a few weeks back, and am please to see them back.

    Currently undecided about the Galway knockoff vs the jumper for versatility

    Comments on sizing vs other Hiro-lasted boots?

    Is replacing the shearling lining possible when it is worn down? Want to pull the trigger on the Meermin Galways

    The Meermin Galways are quite tempting though I'm unsure about the hiro last. Having wide feet makes everything more complicated...

    The seller is called "goodyearshoes" on eBay, apparently the account belongs to a relative of Meermin or something along those lines.

    Here's the link for their current listings on the UK eBay.

    I can't prove it, but watch out for shill bids with that guy: he is a living case for sniper software!
