    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.

    The wild and the pure.
    These three shoes are absolutely amazing!! Didn't anyone notice? They're all of wholecut construction with reverse stitches. With beautiful finish to boot. Only the Lattanzi seamless wholecut blucher posted in this thread can top these. Pure tour de force.
    I have a shoe from the same series, but in a wholecut oxford. I am no fan of wholecuts, but the work put into that shoe is unbelievable.

    To be frank, I find that kind of hidden stitching uncomfortable. It reminds me of a medical condition of some kind.

    Yes, like scar tissue. I'm not a fan.

    I don't like the hidden stitching, either. There is just something about it that doesn't sit well with me. I've seen and tried on styles that I've liked but the hidden stitching ruined it for me.

    A first glimpse of Leffot, a soon-to-be-opened high end men's shoe store in the Village that carries EG, G&G, Weston, Aubercy, and Corthay. It's dark, so pardon the fuzzy pictures.

    Yup, it's on Christopher and Ghey:

    The space is minimalistic, the only display space I saw (thru the perforated metal gate) was the long table, there's no other shelves, may be not yet. As you can see, the shoes they stock are on the safe side, there's no wild color Aubercy:

    Perhaps Gay St. is a harbinger of the type of clients the store will attract.[​IMG]

    Interesting. My old apartment was on Waverly between 6th and Christopher. This store would have crushed my budget during the day. Glad to be far from the temptation.

    This section of the Village is really nice these days. It was perfect as well for getting on the 1,2,3 trains for a ride down into the World Financial Center. Better still was the proximity to the jazz clubs.
