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.

    Has the Frankenstitch ever been GMTO ran in a coloured calf? Say Navy? I'm too small time for shell.

    Thanks. I saw that second picture last night while I was searching on Google. Is that Nevis in the first one cloud?

    I've seen Frankenstitch in non-Shell and it did nothing for me. We've never made it in anything but Shell.

    That, or Navy CXL with a contrasting stitching was my thought. Also like that new Burgundy casual boot in Burgundy CXL you posted previously.

    I'm sorry, it didn't occur to me to take photos then. It is however similar to something like this. The dyes are definitely applied less evenly than anything I've seen from Horween, almost mimicking the Radica calf except in Shell.

    Is cloud just grey, or grey mixed with some other color?

    @Leaves I saw the Carmina quarter brogue (10051) in black under the New Arrivals. Any plans for this model in brown?

    I think they will be awesome! This complete my Frankentrinity with saddle, burgundy and black Frankenstitchs. I think I'll call it quits for now with 5 carmina jumpers 8)

    According to my conversation with @GabrielOB EG is changing Nevis pattern to include speed hooks now.

    Hmm...speed hooks will be standard on the Nevis? If you like no hooks, all the more reason to get it now. Lower prices and you'd have to go to an Advanced MTO in the future just to delete the hooks.

    You can replace speed hooks with eyelets on Option1 level MTO.
