    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.

    Unfortunately I'm poor by SF standards. Carmina and C&J are currently the top of my shoe buying price range. Someday!

    Skoaktiebolaget said it can't be changed so yes. I originally emailed them asking about a 2 or 3-eyelet version but they said no can do. While I would prefer two or three, five doesn't bother me at all.

    I was waiting on the Sinatra restock, but I could switch to the black deco Arran.

    . Yes, I am looking to do a loafer and would consider Antibes, Monaco, or St. tropez. Really looking for a mid to dark brown but would consider anything.

    Okay, so I'm being pressured now by the imminent price increase for EG. Where I'm at now is a pair of Galways on the 64-last. I'm not ready for a two-tone boot yet so it will be one-tone. I am quite attracted to the Brown Utah leather. Any comments on this makeup?

    Also on sizing --- any suggestions?

    - Carmina Oscar last --- UK 7 (perfect fit)
    - C&J 341 --- UK 7E (think I could have gone with a 6.5E)
    - C&J 325 --- UK 7E (think a 6.5E would have been better)
    - Alden Barrie boots --- 7.5D (perfect fit)
    - Alden Plaza boots --- 8D
    - Viberg 2030 --- 7.5 (a 7 also works on this last)
    - Viberg 2045 --- 7.5 (a 7 would have worked better, I think)

    I've tried to give as many comparisons as possible so the more matchups with others will give me more confidence.

    Rothschild mailman shoe GMTO details.

    At this point I see no reason not to use the same details that Leffot used:

    This is a winterized version of Gaziano & Girling's classic Rothschild oxford. With a storm welt and Ridgeway soles, it's tough enough to get you through rain, sleet, snow, and anything else that the season may throw your way. Made in beautiful chestnut hatch grain, it pairs well with blues and greys.
    Features: MH71 last, Chestnut Hatch Grain, Ridgeway soles

    Let's see if i can organize this, Laufer style:

    [​IMG]

    Model : G&G Arran
    Last : TG73
    Soles : single oak bark leather soles
    Color : Deco Black Calf (w/ toe & heel bleaching)
    Price 7440 SEK VAT excluded (approx. $905)

    So far interest has been shown by the following:

    JubeiSpiegel (G width)
    @Flake (F width)
    @Anm1984 (E width)
    @RogerP (F width)
    @othertravel

    If @Leaves can confirm the price and leather availability for this GMTO, and the interested can let me know their GG sizing, we can get something going. Let's see if we can get this done this month... :slayer:

    Woburn is really underrated and maybe you will consider ordering it in green hatch grain? G&G has so many different leathers I believe at one point some forum members were considering ordering woburn in Russian Raindeer?
