    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.

    Almost all my Aldens have this issue, only one C&J does but it's minor. None of the handgrades or Cleverleys rtw have them though

    Stevent, yea consider CJ Benchgrade is still a handmade shoe, minor flaw is to be expected. I just want new buyer of CJ Benchgrade to know they shouldn't expect perfection. If the same flaw were found in CJ Handgrade, EG or JLP, I think you will also see a R or Sub stamped to the shoe.

    Getting ready for summer.

    Just ordered a pair of Hamptons from Ben Silver. Sure hope the 337 Last works for me.

    I just can't wait to get them.

    Like I said, I just hope the Last fits me.

    Cross post from recent purchases; I took delivery of my C&J Ludlow boots:

    Revisting my last "Hurrah!" big clothing purchase for a while. Just received them today, wore them for an hour or so around the office, and they are, in a word, fantastic. fyi: I got them from member Gyasih who was generous enough to work a deal with me, I can't say enough about how well the transaction went.

    Harry usually digs my new footwear, he seems bewildered with these. Finicky cat.

    The Ludlows look great and they look very similar in shape to my Hastings, although I think they're on a different last. Nice boots!

    As far as last/shape, I actually think they're almost identical to my Cliffords (also in Oak) which led me to worry about redundant crossover (why have 2 pair of essentially the same shoe, one as a shoe and one as a boot?). Obviously, I talked myself through it - plus the balmoral shoe vs. blucher boot helps distinguish them a bit too. I'll also note that the medallion between them is different (the Clifford sports a traditional [ahem] "cock and balls") which is nice so they don't have the same toes.

    If I remember correctly, the Ludlow are on 348 (which is probably the most popular/common HG last). Sharp boot and I am still sad BNY did not have my size. Wear in good health.

    Thank you very much! It´s a tiny bit of Saphir dark brown creme in the bottom and then a couple of layers of mid brown pate de lux. I think it turned out well :)

    Wish it wasn't on the 348, $360 for that boot was a steal and I've been wanting a rainwear boot for a while. Finishing on my pair was iffy too, vamps were way off on one pair.


    Old news, been like that for a few weeks now
