1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    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.

    I wear a size 8.5E in the Barrie last. I have an opportunity to purchase a new pair of LHS (cordovan) in a size 8.5D for a great price. I understand the Van and Barrie last are very similar. Will they eventually stretch wide enough to be comfortable? I wouldn't normally take the risk, but the price is tough to pass up on.
