    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.

    Quick question.
    Is the shipping included in the USD conversion app or is just the VAT taken out? Thanks!

    Was about to order a single MTO bal boot but perhaps there's interest for a GMTO?

    Captoe bal boot

    [​IMG]

    Antiqued burgundy upper, 2102 soft chiseled last, beveled black sole

    Black suede shaft, 5 blind eyelets + 4 speed hooks.

    Would anyone be interested in joint for this or something similar?

    ^^^ sounds interesting. I'm not sure the black suede is grabbing me - I'll try to dig up some web pics of similar combos if I can find them.

    I know I would be down with all burgundy calf. Heck, they could just turn that shoe into a tall bal boot and I'd be a happy guy.

    Burgundy with black suede? Not for me, but I do wish you luck. I will definitely be interested in seeing how they turn out.

    Absolutely up for changing to all burgundy calf. Would prefer no medallion but otherwise agree re: changing that shoe into a tall bal boot.

    I can live without the medallion, you okay with the brogueing? I think it would add a nice touch of texture.

    Would much prefer to stick with burgundy or maybe black to keep this a city boot.

    Delete the captoe and speed hooks, and add a medallion and you have the MTO I just placed for a St Crispins bal boot a couple days ago.

    Just bought some new shoe$. Carmina suede cap toes paired with flanells from Incotex and socks from Sozzi.

    I'm also waiting for Bonafé (tan adelaides) and Carmina (navy penny loafers). [​IMG]

    I got more information from Patrik about the options with Bonafe.

    We are currently discussing the following make up:

    - Dark brown calf upper/dark brown grained calf shaft
    - 2102 soft chiseled last
    - Norvegese welt
    - Natural sole edge
    - Regular width

    Sole options:
    - Double leather sole (metal toe taps would be an extra 400 SEK)
    - Dainite sole (extra 200 SEK)

    The price is 4,560 SEK ex-VAT plus 300 SEK for worldwide shipping. This would include a double leather sole, there would be an additional cost for toe taps or Dainite as listed above.
