    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.

    Did you proceed with your single MTO? What are the specs of what you chose?

    Thanks. This is what I get for not checking SF enough over the past few days (work has been way too busy). I'd have been interested in the Brown Willow MTO as well . . .

    Hi guys, an update for the Willow Calf. We'll e-mail a deposit link for the Dover in Brandy Willow soon. We have only one spot left for the Brandy Willow. E-mail us if you want in on the Dover Brandy Willow GMTO or if you wish to do a single MTO.

    About 4 months. 5-6 for Dover, Nevis and other hand sewn models.

    I hate the extra wait, but I think it's kinda cool that the lead time is that much longer for the handsewn models. Makes me feel like I'm getting something extra special!

    Recieved my first pair of shoes from these guys, thankyou very much. The Carmina Cognac PTB's. They're by far the nicest shoe I own.

    I just get a little bit of heel slip, not so much that they come out of the shoe, but it is annoying, am I expecting this to go away after I've worn them in?

    Probably. Double Dainites are often hard in the beginning, and when they soften it should get better.

    Not to take away any exclusivity, but the tannery group Vecchia Toscana who bought Ilcea's bankrupt's estate didn't just buy the name, they bought the whole factory and all recipes, and has continued with mainly the same staff. So the Turin tannery Ilcea do still exist, just with new owner.

    However they have slimmed their offerings, and don't sell Willow grain now (at least not ATM), so these EG-pairs still will be very rare. And it's a bloody gorgeous leather!

    I wish i could support someone's GMTO, but my wide feet make me a spectator, until there are 6 already onboard...

    Indeed I am trying to get GMTO for Falkirk with following specs

    Last: 202
    Color : chestnut calf leather with extra burnishing.
    Soles : HAF soles

    If I cannot muster 6 people I will go on my own. I am surprised there is no more interest for this. Falkirk is unique shoe.

    I'm surprised that there is not much interest in anything but boots and Dovers really.

    Personally, i was having a little trouble finding some other EG styles that i really liked, but i didn't know it was mutual for other people. Aside from the Harrogate, Westminster, & Silverstone, i am not really feeling any other EG models. I might have to give in and do a Dover GMTO one of these days, but i'll wait until we get something like a Utah dark oak Dover on the 606 last going... :nodding:
