    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.

    I've had the 633. It is an awesome shoe. Way better than the 575.

    St. Crispin's fit me far better than G&G, and IMO the quality is better--and the wait shorter. Never had the opportunity to work through fit problems with EG.



    Any chance you could post a few pics of yours?

    Very nice! I was previously completely opposed to a Ghillie but the style has really grown on me. May have to pick up a pair. Yours look fantastic. Thanks for sharing.

    Quote:Ghillies get a lot of hate on SF - never understood it, but don't particularly care. I think they make a terrific smart casual shoe and are a stylish choice for someone looking to add something special to an established rotation. The shoe landscape is rather well populated with plain old PTBs. Thank heavens for something different. I will now step down from my soapbox. ;-)

    Haha - I agree with you completely roger. I think the above is a very elegant take on the model. I do not have anything from St. C so I may go with the ghillie for my first pair from them. I may exercise restraint and pick them up if I meet some professional goals this year. Cheers.

    As much as I like them - I think you are experiencing the same wild creasing I am...

    I just think the heavy burnishing is emphasizing the creases

    It is crust leather, most of the color is from the polish. It lightens up in the creases. Photography enhances it.
