    No, they just ignored me. So I had to sell the boots on B&S.

    It is a store in San Francisco, they also have an online presence http://wingtip.com/ I ordered some items from them but I have feeling you will find some stuff for yourself there too.
    Cheers

    @chobochobo when something like that happens you can dispute the transaction with your credit card company.

    @laufer, in retrospect, yes that's what I should have done.

    they do not stock them but they did have pair in every size (something like from 6UK to 11UK) and several different widths to be able to nail down RTW fit

    Interesting. When Wingtip used to carry Alfred Sargent they had both stock and trial shoes. Didn't know they have trial shoes for Saint Crispins but do know that they dont stock SC.

    Just wanted to post yet another great St. Crispin's experience. I recently shipped back a pair of mine to get a resole, and an inquiry about if anything could be done to some damage due to extreme wear (severely beat up sole, and cracked lining and such). I got them back and I almost shit myself. They look brand new, newer than some of my others that have come back with only a new sole. On this well worn pair the entire sole had been replaced (not a half sole, which is normally done), and the lining had been completely replaced as well. I am not sure, due to the sock liner, but if they replaced the insole as well that would have been a serious undertaking being that welting the insole is probably 75% of making a shoe. Also, since I am a huge black shoe guy, my new sole is polished a glossy black as a nod to my taste I'm sure. Hats off to Saint Crispins.

    I don't know how they did it, but even the stitching of the lining to the uppers doesn't appear to be messed up. It is almost as if the new stitches went into the old holes and didn't create new ones. Maybe that's just the product of using a sewing machine for uppers.

    Almost a shame to wear em again, frame em!

    Nah, with that quality of product and service they should be worn proudly, as I'm sure they will!

    So what's your real name and why do they have CG pinned to the waist?

    Many people on Style Forum are disappointed when they find out that my real name isn't Patrick Booth. A large majority of them still call me Patrick, or Booth, IRL though and they refuse to call me by my real name.

    I'm not disappointed...I'm just curious--I have an analytical mind (I suspected foul play or something untoward when I saw the bottoms of your shoes.)

    Do you ever let slip your real name...or the dogs of war, whichever comes first?

    I've never let it slip on here. I'm not against people knowing who I am or anything, I'd just rather not have it plastered all over the internet for many reasons that I am sure you can guess.

    I'll also add that the mystique of pB is much more interesting than the real pB (I'm a pretty simple person).
