    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 see what you mean from the pic, unfortunately that isn't one that I looked over closely when I was last in the store - but I will get an eyes-on report for you when I next stop in.

    It could be the "finishing" On the box there are different variations of this, for example CRU, or FUN. I have both, FUN is definitely softer and more wrinkle prone and has an interesting luster. I am not sure what the actual difference is though. Something I plan on asking Philip out of curiosity. FWIW, I like both.

    But, I think the idea that any leather that wrinkles more is inferior is misguided. I think it could be, but it depends on what part of the hide it is cut from as well as tanning and finishing.

    Does anybody know if Saint Crispins has done a model like the Edward Green Oundle? I'd like a monk like that made by Saint Crispins.

    Also does anybody know how willing they are to change patterns on the shoes slightly? For example model 535 is a balmoral. Is it possible to get it without the peak on the side, and even by the vamp make the galosh look a bit more traditional?

    Rather than this:

    More like this:

    The patterns they will change as I originally wanted a simply with fake seams that Phillip showed me a picture of though he talked me out of it.

    Not sure on monk

    They will make such changes, at a cost. I have done similar things before. This is what I like most with StC apart from craftsmanship and quality of course - they are extremely flexible.

    I am sure they could, at a charge. What I am not sure is the outcome of the pattern change; are you going to lower the balmoral line to the bottom of the peak? or are you removing the peak and moving the balmoral line up?

    That SC pair's balmoral line is very very shallow and the only reason it works is the downward pointing peak to balance and give some depth to the shallow horizontal line.

    Yeah, I am not really sure. If I went that route I would leave it to them to make it work.

    I have asked Saint Crispins this same question perviously about a similar style in my case it was the G&G Warwick. [​IMG]

    Saint Crispins said they could do it but at the end I didn't order it and just opted for the G&G option. As with any pattern change it's alway a risk how it will turn out.

    spent a few minutes on the phone w/ the 'valley girl' @ LF who helped talk me through the actual coloring of
    this shoe.

    is it weird to carry a St C suede swatch around the golf course while making a decision ?
    seems a tad anal at minimum

    ^^^ Indeed. When you're an inmate of this asylum, crazy is the new normal. [​IMG]

    @SoGent I had hoped to get up to LF yesterday for a trunk show they were having (and to check out that shoe for you) but got stuck in court all day.

    [​IMG] The crime is question was murder, but I was thankfully neither the victim nor the perpetrator.

    Would be pretty scary if you were the victim and still able to post here....or good news because the "other side" offer you to hang out on SF :slayer:
