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.

    I visited the shop back in April, and walked out with a pair of Carmina black wingtips in Simpson. It was great seeing the shop - and shoes! - in person, and chatting with the guys. With the VAT refund I saved probably $60 - you don't get the full value of VAT refunded as the service charges a fee. That said, it was nice to try on some different lasts, and save a few bucks too. The savings would obviously be more on a pair of StC.

    Second this, and add interest in any shots in the wild of Alentejo, Norte, Sintra, or Violet patinas (not Latinas, as autocorrect would have it).

    Edit: found Norte and Sintra, anyone ordered Alentejo?

    I think, once you hit the 6 (or is it now 8) minimum participants for the GMTO, other widths become available.

    I should clarify, are all Skoak pre-orders (such as the ones posted above) available to order in an extra wide widths?

    GMTO's are tricky if I recall because most don't allow extra wide sizes, regardless of the amount of participants.

    I suspected as much, but those cordovan chukkas looked good enough to ask.

    Back to the old MTO drawing board i guess...

    Is the Carlos Santos 234 an asymmetrical last, similar to the Meermin Olfe?

    I would be interested in the same configuration and also in polo suede. Anyone interested in either or also both?
