    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.

    Robert Talbott buckles will match nice with the Horween belts.

    Typical for those horse strap buckles to come with a custom Bridle Leather belt. Strap buckles are a

    Very English country look and not American business at all. Really your only buying the shell strap and the 450$ is a choice deal for single piece construction on a strap that will fit tons of great buckles. obviously I'm jelly

    Interesting. I was thinking of going with a 7.5D in Van since I'm a true size 8, and I dont think the van has a huge heel cup like the aberdeen last?

    woah, those are beauts. Must be the guys at moulded. Groovy make-up, but i'm always partial to speed hooks (the out of box laces are too long and floppy otherwise.) Modified last suede is sho nuff funky. be nice in snuff too

    Aberdeen cups my heel much more snuggly than Van. I think it may be because the Tassel comes up about 1/2" higher on the back of my heel than the LHS.

    Just took trees out of these, so the shape of the heel might be more representative of the shape of the trees than the respective lasts.

    Edit: 7.5D may very well work for you. 7D was simply my "best guess".

    Thanks for the insight. I suppose i may go through the trial & error process since I don't have a retailer nearby with smaller sizes. 7D might be a viable option as well, since suede will be a bit flimsier than cordovan/calfskin.

    I have found that it borders on absurd. The last time I inquired of a model on the email list, I was told (1) that they had it, (2) that they didn't have it, and (3) that they had it. The third response came about 5 days after the second response.

    And I have asked to be placed on their auto-email list no fewer than 6 times, and I still don't get the lists consistently. Seems strange that they wouldn't employ a more efficient system.

    And I like, and patronize, TSM.

    Call them to be added to the list--it is more reliable.
