    Humm, I am embarrassed to say I can't see any such option. I am not entirely sure I am looking at the correct page - I can see lots and lots of preferences but none of them mention a signature! What else should be on this profile page you refer to?

    Sounds like you're on the preferences page.

    You want to be on your profile page (the top L corner of your screen should look something like the attached image - N.B. where it says "Styleforum > BEBOP D's PROFILE)

    Scroll down on that page and you should see it.

    Really appreciate your help Bebop but that is where I was looking and there is no option for a signature. I have emailed my account manager - hopefully it is something they can enable.

    In the meantime some news - we have added 3 new fields to each product page:

    Construction (Eg Goodywear Welted, Blake Stitched etc)
    Sole (Leather, Rubber Studded, Rubber Commando etc)
    Country of Origin (England, France etc)

    Most of our stock should have these values already assigned but we will add the rest in the coming weeks. We hope this is helpful.

    We will also be adding this to the search facility very soon.

    Ordered a few pairs from Pediwear over the years, and have always been a big fan of their prices and service, they went out of there way to do me a favour when I had a financial issue pop up just after I made a transaction, and am very grateful. Thanks once again.

    I bought a pair of Alfred Sargent Howard Brogues from Pediwear last year. Service was outstanding. I just wish the Pound wasn't so strong against the Canadian dollar or else I'd buy another pair from them!

    You need a link to your site in the opening page of this thread and another in your signature.

    Hello Everyone

    I have finally managed to get our signature sorted out. it turns out you need to have made so many posts before the option to create a signature appears.

    I wanted to mention some MTOs which have been arriving with us this month. They are all made in England - from a variety of manufacturers including Sanders, NPS and Barker. I am starting with three styles made for us by Sanders (there is a forth Chelsea boot to follow).

    David and I had a wonderful time being shown round the Sanders factory. It is great to see all the processes involved in constructing Goodyear welted footwear - I never grow tired of this. It is our intention that these styles will be the first in a long time of MTOs from Sanders.

    [​IMG]
    This is the wonderful Pediwear Teddington,

    It is a tan calf leather boot with a natural welt and a studded rubber sole. Perfect for arduous days in the country and casual urban wear alike.

    We hope that this presentation of a tan country brogue has a combination of quality of construction and style which will appeal to our customers.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    In a similar vein we have the Pediwear Bruno - which for those who know Sanders range will recognise. It is a Sanders Bruno, but in black calf (which they do not offer) with a natural welt and matching tan laces (with a bright green option if you are more daring)... I have a pair of these and they are already drawing plenty of admiring comments and orders.

    And finally for this post we have the Pediwear Leicester. We had this made to fill what we perceived was a lack of offerings in this area - this is a very reasonably priced English made black calf toe cap Oxford in a G fitting. I also own a pair of these (testing your own products is obviously absolutely essential) and I can testify to their excellent fitting and comfort.

    Thank you for taking the time to view these - if you have any comments, questions or feedback we would be most grateful to hear them. I have some shots of the Sanders factory which I will up load as soon as I get a chance.

    I'm considering a pair of those Leicester oxfords. I think I actually submitted an e-mail via your contact form last night, but I figure it can't hurt to ask here, as well. Can you comment on their fit for somebody with a slightly wide, flat arch? The only sizing I can offer for comparison would be the Allen Edmonds 65 last, which I understand you may not have personal experience with. I take a 9E in that shoe, so if anybody familiar with the sizing can comment, I'd appreciate it.

    Also it would be nice to get some reviews on quality of the Pediwear brand shoes from anybody that's bought them.

    Edit: Just read somewhere that the standard width in the UK is F, so that your G sizing would be approximately equivalent to my E width here in the states. Does that sound about right?

    I wish you could convince Sanders to bring back the recently discontinued Belgrade longwing.
    The replacement Berne model looks like a poor imitation. It's no gunboat.

    Thank you Coburn, we am pleased to hear you were happy with our service.

    I am hoping to be able to show you very soon, they were due for delivery in September - I am just waiting to hear back from Betty regarding an up to date delivery date.

    Thank you Foxhound, good to hear you are happy with the service you received.

    Hi Perco - yes we wish the GBP wasn't so strong too! Hopefully it will drop back down to more reasonable levels sometime soon.

    Hi, the Oxfords are made on the STET last which is a well used Sanders last (just type STET into the search box on our website to see the various styles which are made on this last).

    The STET last is a standard fitting last which for most will fit true to size. We have had this style made in a G fitting which is wider than the standard F fit. A US E is generally considered to be in between a G and an F. I think that it is likely that the size 9 G would suit you well. I am generally an F fit, yet the size 10 G fits me well, so it is certainly not excessively wide.

    David is our Sanders fitting expert so if you need further information please do email him (though he is not in today). I hope that helps - please let me know if we can help any more in the meantime.

    We just have one black one left [​IMG] but your request is something we can mention to Sanders. Presumably they stopped it due to declining demand, but it would be interesting to know if the Berne has done any better.

    Thanks,
    I had the burgundy version on my wish list for a while.
    To me the new Berne looks far too svelte, while the old Belgrade is a big no-nonsense shoe with a thick sole.
    I have two pairs of Allen Edmonds MacNeils, which are hard to get here in England, and the Belgrade was in that style, but maybe even beefier.

    Thank you, I will reach out to him. Does he have a direct email address? I am hoping to make a purchase decision in the next two weeks.

    To clarify, in your opinion, you don't think it would be necessary to size down from the US 9E to your UK sizing? I thought it was customary to reduce by a half to a full size. I'll do some reading on your return policy, just in case.

    Hi
    Sorry, I should have said 8.5 rather than 9 - I forgot to size down from the US size. We recommend sizing down just a half size from the US size, not a whole size.

    Unfortunately David is off ill and the information I received today suggests that he might not be back for the rest of the week.

    We do have some measuring instructions which we can email you. If we can get accurate measurements I would be happy to confidently advise you before David is back. If you email sales@pediwear.co.uk requesting measuring instructions from Mike we will send these by return and take things from there?

    Did you get through to us about these? Let me know if you have any other questions.

    We have just received our first batch of Carmina. I haven't seem them yet as I am not at the warehouse today, but I will be eagerly opening boxes tomorrow - images to follow very soon.

    In the meantime this week we have received this seasons Trickers MTOs. Two of them were customer favourites

    The Windermere - marron / green boot sold out last time so here it is again ...

    [​IMG]
    And the Bourton black dainite..
    [​IMG]
    New for us is this Bugundy version of the Bourton with a Commando sole. David gets asked quite a lot about the Bourton with a Commando sole - so we are hoping this version goes down well, it certainly looks the part...

    [​IMG]
    But I am going to make you wait for the best - the Cordovan boot. I am still finishing the images for this one, but it will be up on the site and here this evening. It has to be our finest Trickers MTO yet. We have another Cordovan shoe coming from Trickers too but there was a delay with the leather so we will just have to make do with this one for now.

    Thanks flvinny521 pleased to hear we were able to be of service.

    As promised here is the Trickers Cordovan boot just arrived in store:

    [​IMG]
    We've called it the Trickers Windsor for ease of reference. It is a gorgeous boot - please feel free to be very tempted.

    This is our first range of Carmina shoes. I am very sorry to say that due to problems obtaining enough Cordovan, Carmina were unable to produce the two Cordovan styles we ordered.

    Four of these styles are now on the website with full details and the other two will be added on Monday. Please ask on here or via the usual channels if you have any questions. We hope you like them!
