    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.

    The import tax and duties from the EU to US for men's shoes is 8.5% plus maybe another percent handling fee from FedEx, to be honest, I think this is very low.

    It is correct that Bonafè does not provide a recommended retail price list and probably never will. Saint Crispin's did not either until very, very recently. With StC the problem is more the opposite where you see over priced StC in parts of the world. Carmina still does not have a formal RRP although they expect you to not sell below their online prices. But that's about to change. There will be major changes before the end of the year.

    One reason why I wanted to get some GMTOs in via Carmina sooner than later.

    I know I am late to this, but if others are still interested in a rain lasted tomir sole formal dress shoe in burgundy, I would be in as well.
    I would also be fine with vegano burdeaux (see here: http://www.carminashoemaker.com/mens-oxford-shoes/lace-up-burgundy-80251) or museum burgundy for color.
    For design I would be fine with anything as minimal as this (http://www.carminashoemaker.com/mens-oxford-shoes/toe-cap-punched-80201) up to a quarter-brogue but no more than that.
    @Pbayvip @canadianhockey3 @BingoLiddle @ThunderMarch was there a 6th person interested and did anyone make a thread?

    Hope we can make this happen--thanks!

    I would be interested in a burgundy with a tomir sole if it's either a normal cap toe or quarter brogue.

    Can one do a split toe derby in forest or rain last? I have it in Simpson but I'd like less of a taper.

    Does anyone have pics of split toe shoes in Rain or Forest? Thinking about mid brown, but interested in any colors that are in that range (my current split toes are in tan).

    I'd look at Soller before Forest. There was a recent split toe GMTO on Soller that looked really nice.

    Thanks all. Not familiar with Alcudia or Soller (though the latter is even rounder than Forest which I just saw via Ttown?). Im inclined to Rain if it can be done.
