    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.

    Maiden voyage today for the reverse chamois lwb I picked up from Winn Perry. I haven't heard much about these on here, so my guess is they aren't for everyone. I'm pretty far on the casual side of things so they work for me.

    -Horween Reverse Chamois
    -Antique Edge
    -Double Waterlock Sole
    -Barrie Last

    Very cool on so many levels! I don't know that I've seen a reverse chamois makeup lately that isn't awesome.

    Amazing as always MrDV. I'm also happy for all of you who getting their Ravello CT boots from either A DC or Leffot! I just sent a payment for my Ravello PT boots on Modified last to Anatomica and Charles is amazing to deal with. Even got shoe trees for Modified last included hehehe. I ended up paying approximately $262 US more for this pair vs buying a pair of shell boots from Alden DC or Leffot after $CAN conversion/shipping and Ontario taxes. So it's all good and I can't wait to receive my first pair on Modified last. Have a good day all.

    Always regretted not buying your dover when you posted it.


    I guess at least I know my wallet can rest a bit knowing the dover preorder isn't around the corner just yet haha

    Picked up my blue suede tassel loafers yesterday and couldn't resist some nice, bright red and blue houndstooth socks to go with them.

    Good comments.....

    To be clear, my comment about PT boots was general, and had nothing to do with the boot in question or the modified last. I buy nothing on the modified last.

(picking up 2 suede and 3 shell) / in the past couple months I got in on 3 pre orders +that crazy beautiful ravello PT boot (coming soon) +1 Viberg pre order and + basically new&badass #8 chukka thanks to @michiganPlanner.

    I hate to do this to you and sound like enabler but once you see a unicorn, grab it.

    good luck

    Yes - they are the camel MTO Rudy from @Epaulet. I absolutely love them but I think I am going to take them to the tailor tomorrow and have them shortened just a tad.

    27. Started with Indys five-ish years ago. Then my next couple of pairs were purchased at random sales (like Haberdasher's sale yesterday). For a long time, I refused to pay full retail just because they were so expensive.

    Now I'm on a half dozen lists and just got off the fun with Charles at Anatomica (who was incredibly helpful and friendly!) and bought the Ravello PT Boots.

    Also - I work from home and am either barefoot or in workout clothes 90% of the day.
