    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 was just using the picture to show the shape of the bottom part of the brogue facing, where the curve is nicely rounded. I don't really care for the swoosh. I would also like the brogue to include pinking/serrated edge.

    Anyway, to the MTO guys, the 2nd from the left that you guys chose

    is the same as this

    Can I persuade you guys to consider the 3rd from the left, which is more of a chestnut color?

    Guys, it's going to be tough to please everyone on this MTO it seems. What do you guys think of:
    • Model 3200 (I'll ask Bonafé to make it with a peaked heel counter like on the G&G St.James II)
    • No cap, but with medallion
    • 946 chiselled last
    • Vitello Giamaica

    I am in. Not forgetting fiddleback and heavy burnishing on toes and heels.

    U-Wing Boot. any interest in getting this boot made up? it sounds like the outsole is the only outstanding detail. just post what you want the outsole to be and the majority wins.

    i want single dainite

    j. lee, you want the york?

    m6, you expressed interest in a single leather?

    If york would cause any structural issues, then I'd opt for dainite if we're doing single. If double soles, then one piece leather with a piece dainite. As long as I don't need to fuss with getting toe taps installed, I'm happy.

    I'm all for a new Galway GMTO. I was hoping someone would get the ball rolling on this. Only problem is that there are sooooo many nice combinations it's hard to chose one and stick with it.

    Edwardian/Grain?

    DOAK/Walnut Grain re-run?

    Cloud/Black Suede?

    Rosewood Country Calf?
