    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.

    Yeah, I contacted both Forbes, shoesofnorthhampton.com and Pediwear, but they have alle sold out (I'm using 9E as well) - the demand for Bond accessories is apparently bottomless...

    ^Have you tried asking C&J themselves? Even if they're out, you can bet your last quid that the first Islays off the production line will be headed their way...

    I believe you would still be able to get on the pre-order at Christopher Forbes, I'd shoot them an email to their customer service. Also, I found out Crockett & Jones will do preorders, I think you have to put the full amount up front, but I think since it's through the actual company that would garauntee delivery. I messaged with a store rep from the Burlington Arcade location, Yukiko was her name, and she said it would be best to pay now to insure you get a pair. I had already paid my 50% through Forbes otherwise I would have gone this route. Hope that helps.

    Re: those looking for the Islay - Barneys sells the boot. Why don't you contact SF member tacobender. He works at Barneys in AZ. I believe that he will be able to check stock in all of their stores.

    Thanks for all your suggestions! I've also been in contact with C&J (form where I got the information that it was due to the Bond-apperance that they where sold out), og sure enough they suggested me to pay the full price of a pair of boots that might be delivered in February. Out of desperation I tried to contact a German retailer (Budapester Schuhe) where I tried them before, and it turned out they had a pair in my size. Not only that, they where also on sale for 369 euro, AND they provided the shipping for free! Problem solved: I'll be receiving my new Islays by Tuesday :D

    Cheers,
    SKM

    Congrats, and I am sure you'll be happy with them.

    I know I am.

    Thank you.

    The Lindricks are on the 325 last and the Islays are on the 365 last.

    I wear the same size for both boots, and the fit seems to be pretty much the same.

    Yes, very nice collection. Those Lindricks are beautiful. I think I may have decided on my next big purchase.

    I'm certain if you do decide to get them, you'll be glad you did.

    However you may have to be a bit patient.

    They currently only have only a few sizes in Cordovan availible now.

    Just as in prior years they pretty much sell out during the annual sale, so you may have to wait awhile until they become availible again.

    Besides the time to really get them is during the November sale anyways. Normally priced at $1,100, they really are a better bargain at $700.

    That will give me something to look forward to then. I'll put a bug in my wife's ear now and maybe I may end up getting them as an Anniversary gift, the timing would work out well :)

    Has anyone ever used Montana Pitch Blend to care for C&Js? Was considering using it on the tan Grasmere.
