1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    Cheers,

    Well Gents,

    I am fucking ecstatic on this Friday evening as my MTO C&J's have just arrived...

    Details:
    Model C&J Burnham (Tetbury with a buckle instead of lace)
    Last: 348
    Leather: Navy Grain
    Sole: Dainite

    Review: Doing an MTO with C&J was very easy and definitely turned out great. Will do more MTO's in the future for certain.

    EDIT: I want to add...with C&J, unlike other makers, they are very flexible and willing to make design changes and are open to just about anything. This is something I really liked about doing the MTO with them!!!

    @PCK1 Lovely, great work! Couldn't agree more regarding C & Js flexibility and customer comes first attitude.

    @Shoeproject Looking great man!

    Thanks! My first pair of C&Js. Main difference to Loakes (besides the look and feel) is the feeling I get walking in them. Feels like walking on air.

    Cheers

    True. I feel like I could exchange all my Loakes for just one pair of C&Js

    Thanks!

    The collection (from top left): loake Buckingham, loake Aldwych
    Bottom row: Carmina punched cap toe (armoury last, quite snug), C&J Drummond, loake Dorchester (mayfair last, fits a bit large to size)


    Finally a picture of my brand new Drummonds:
