    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.

    EB Walnut Suede Derby Wingtips came in the mail today, from Skoak odd stock (talk about a ridiculous deal). So lovely. Even better in person.

    I'm also now in love with the 363MOD last. Fits like a glove.

    I'm usually 10.5D/E US, depending how high the instep is (mine is rather high). I went with my usual to 9.5UK and they fit great. My spectators are also 9.5UK on the 846 last, and I'd say they're just a little bit more snug than these are. I think the high EB instep is works well with my feet.

    For $253 + free shipping I feel like I got away with some highway robbery here. There's a little discoloration around a couple of the eyelets on one of the shoes, which is why I'm assuming they ended up in odd stock:

    But I'm not going to complain about that. These are going to be my fall/spring workhorses and out in inclement weather given the dainite soles, so it's not a big deal to me (especially given the price).

    Tell me about it. Its always a good day when you luck out and get a pair from odd stock. Of course there are no guarantees your size will end up there. But it sure did about a month or so ago when I got my pair of EG Shanklins that way.

    Have basically been traveling for the last month and the intra-thread searching is not the best, so apologies for a question that I'm sure has been asked, any news on the timeline for the GMTO of the Simpson museum calf?

    If you're talking about the recent 905 chukka gmto in burgundy museum calf it's apparently October?

    Judging by the latest run of Doak Dovers that I have received, we might be in luck.

    The definitive Galway. The definitive derby boot, for that matter.
