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.

    With the Finsbury did you size up or down from the 348 at all? The 348 fits me like a glove so Im tempted to order the 341 in the same size...thanks

    I took the same size in the 341 as I did in the 348. Although I must admit the 341 was so snug at first that I didn't think it was going to work out. The issue being the width at the toes. So I would say the 341 is just a smidge narrower than the 348 at the toes.

    I have black suede Mertons but would not wear them with shorts. My brown suede Cavendish are fine though.

    Do you know if ordering from Robert Old to the US with standard shipping (what do they use?) results in customs fees?

    definitely no mertons with shorts, but I am wearing the beechnuts with a pair of dark slim jeans and they go very well

    Agreed, particularly the color and level of polish/care.

    I'm looking at some BB Peal & Co. bals. I have AE 5th Aves in 11D. The fit is good, maybe a little tight in the toe box at the end of the day. Any insight on whether to go 11D on the Peals or size up to 11.5D?

    Has anyone else previously ordered from Robert Old to the US? I'm trying to find out if I will be hit with customs or not.

    Best way is to contact them and ask who they use as a currier. Honestly, there is always a possibility of getting customs fees. The issue is that certain curriers (i.e., DHL) charge handling fees that are excessive (in my opinion). Once you find out who they use, search the frequency people had been charged customs.
