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.

    Love the Ghilllies and the shrunken calf loafers.

    I love the comparison! great idea. We should start to do that more often for each major style between the equivalent brands to help us all decide which ones we really prefer.

    Yes I've often thought the same thing.

    In this regard I like what @wurger did with the black dress oxford. However I doubt that many have done or would do what he did with any other type of shoe.

    Just an update on my first pair via the personalized last option: right shoe gave me a blister near the heel; left shoe gave me some slight discomfort near the top line. The Armoury is sending them back to be re-lasted. They're going to lower the top line by 2mm and fix the heel issue by enlarging the shoe.

    The most recent pair was the 581--Des Voeux in CRU 609. I think it's a versatile color that I plan to use again, particularly because I do not prefer black shoes.

    Next I'm looking at a navy suede (BCK) loafer (533/533x) for the summer, and maybe a split toe derby (508/633) in Russian Calf?

    What about you? Any new St.C orders/ideas on the horizon?

    Trying to decide on my next order. Considering the 575
    [​IMG]
    or the 633
    [​IMG]

    I've seen the 575 IRL but not the 633. Anyone own these? Having any opinions on how well St. C does this Dover type stitching?

    I prefer the 575 because I feel that the 663 is trying to be too close to the Dover. I haven't seen it in person but if the stitching isn't the same you would be better to just get a Dover.
