1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    kcgreg, check email reply

    Alex,
    The new calfskin from Italy will be +$100, so $280 plus shipping at $15-20ish.

    We can do the model you showed below. Let me know, there's enough premium leather for about 3 pairs left at the moment. Despite the cost differential, I firmly believe that this calfskin will put our shoes at a comparable level (in terms of leather quality) with top-level brands that cost well over $1000+ for custom fit.

    To the gentleman above me: http://schubertcustom.blogspot.com/



    Order form can be found there. For my past purchase and sales reliability, click here for eBay feedback. Current prices (US$) are $215 and $230 for boots. $50 instant discount is given to first-time customers, as an incentive to go through the self-measurement process: we will store your custom last so that repeat ordering is fast and easy.

    Seok, if i read this correctly i can order my first pair for $ 165 dollar of $ 180 dollar for boots.

    So for 180 dollar i could order this model: [​IMG]

    Is it also possible in that colour? Otherwise i like the colour of the santoni your posted [​IMG]

    just received my order and they look great! they fit better than any of the shoes i own. i rate the leather at AE level for seok's normal calfskin and Grenson MP for the Italian calfskin. these should be $1,000 a pair shoes with the custom fit, but it looks like you can pick up 3-4 pairs for that much money at Schubert.

    i don't have a digital camera handy but let's see if other members get their shoes soon! i'm gonna be dropping the Ferragamos. i'm gonna re-order soon.

    I ordered penny loafers, wingtips, and plain-toe balmorals. I was the "ballsy" guy from AA. Fits a little tighter on the loafers for sure, but seok tells me that that's how it should be?

    Even though I don't qualify for the first-time customer deal, I think these are still great values for $210 (normal) or $310 (premium) ballpark. My next order is supposed to take longer and I would not be surprised if prices go up with all the orders. I'm getting my right side toebox a tiny bit roomier next time.

    Did he let you know when your shoes had shipped? I have two pairs coming and when I read that you've received yours... I ran to the back door to see if they'd been delivered and unfortunately they hadn't.

    Is it just me or is this whole thread starting to smell a bit fishy? One guy (with two total posts) has received his shoes, and nobody has posted pics after multiple requests.

    a member wrote saying i may have mutiny on my hands if i don't post pics soon.

    sgl23 is the only member whose shoes have been shipped out, he posted on the temporary SF at AAAC before. he placed his complete order a good few weeks before others.

    i will take some sample photos of the shoes are they are made, but i need you guys to be patient here and have some faith. thank you.

    I agree with the poster who noted that this thread looked fishy. I had pointed out earlier that Seouk had represented himself as the representative of the shoemaker, but often answers questions as if he is the shoemaker. I also took note of the number of posts of the sole recipient of these shoes.

    I truly hope I'm wrong, but I really don't think this is going to end well.
