1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Beautiful shoes. The middle would look great with some summer suits.

    Thanks. Well, the Radica carries a few dollar premium...$335 is the price. Only 9 pair bought in each color, not including the pre-orders.

    Radica is great stuff, particularly that 033 color. It's beautiful and surprisingly soft and supple -- I have a couple of pairs of Gravatis in it.

    For the benefit of geeks like me, Ron, could you tell the class how you would describe that shell cordovan wingtip to the folks at Martegani? I see the storm welt and the sole and heel extension. How would you communicate that?

    Sure...42.24.02FR/ShellCordo Brandy/Tirolese/RPD frescia/8.5

    42 is last, 2 is for oxford, 4 is for Full Brogue, 02 is the quarter pattern detial, F means 'fiore' or medallion, R is the medallion type, material, Tirolese is his term for split-reverse welt, RPD is construction w/ frescia meaning sand edges square for heavy English look, and size.
