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.

    Is Grenson Masterpiece still around? It looks like the highest Grenson line is called G Zero. Is it the same thing?

    My understanding is that Grenson still produces shoes for Paul Stuart to Masterpiece standards. I have both the Grenson for PS and C&J for Brooks Brothers/Peal, and the PS Grenson's are at least as good as the Peal C&J's. However, I cannot confirm that this is going to be the case for the particular boots being discussed here.

    Thanksm, but my question is about whether Grenson still produces a line called "Masterpiece". I can't find any info on their website. The highest line they produce is called G Zero. And they retail for abut $1k.

    Nope, no Grenson "Masterpiece" any longer. They have rebranded all of their stuff, and decreased the quality of a lot of it through outsourcing production. There are a few SF threads on this, for example:

    I think it's old stock, not sure, but the quality is OUTSTANDING, especially for the price.

    oops I even looked at faq section for return policy and didn't see that. I'm sure it will work out.

    Pulled the trigger on the Paul Stuart Islay Boots. These will be my winter and all around every day/weekend boots. I'm really fired up.

    Did you find those in store? I haven't seen them on the website in a long time. Nice pickup.

    I'm not sure I believe that. I've been checking the site just about everyday to see if there were any C&J adds, and I think the brown Hallams were $339 or $349. Maybe they dropped to $229 for the last pair or something.

    Correct. The Flatiron shop to be exact. These were on sale for 50% off plus an additional 30% for spend more save more. C&J Shell boots for $349.
