    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.

    That's why you will more than likely own more than just one pair eventually.


    I ordered my second pair not too long after receiving my first pair.

    My favourite SC model that might be next on the cards (pic courtesy Zimmerman Kim):

    I cannot imagine a sexier form.

    Was thinking of varying the leather type on the saddle and the rest of the shoe....same colour leather but normal crust for the body and shrunken leather for the saddle part (or maybe the other way around)....what do you guys think?

    I think it will turn out great. I agree on staying with the same colour and the varying of the leather will make a contrasting yet subtle variation. Added with some polishing (with little variance in shade) will make it even more interesting

    Box calf with croc saddle. Or hippo, elephant saddle.

    Light-colored variants of crust leather do stain and scratch easily.

    right here, for now
    I think you're dead on the money with your idea, i've been thinking the same. the shrunken calf - dark chocolate brown would be amazing

    my latest just for idea fodder :

    Yes, I understand they received a shipment.


    Unfortunately I'll just have to wait until mine is shipped to me.

    Good question. I have a pair of Full Brogues in Black Brown and these are much more on the Dark Brown side then that pair. I actually prefer this color at this point so I'm happy.

    I have been waiting an awful long time for my second pair of Crispins. They are either insanely busy, or they are just bringing the whole balance of them with them to the October trunk show for me to pick up.

    I had to wait a bit longer for my second pair as well. First pair only took 2 months, but the second pair has taken 3 1/2 months. This includes 3 weeks were St Crispin took off for holiday in August.
