    i had a random girl literally come up to me and say "nice shoes, want to fuck?"
    she didn't really mean it then but at least i got her number and it might potentially lead to something like buttsecks.


    That's some Inland Empire shit right there [​IMG]

    I think I'm going to order the black calf jumpers, when will you be getting them in?

    Not for about 6 months.

    Nice. I will definitely be quoting you the next time someone is on the fence about buying a pair. [​IMG]

    Tom, those Jumpers are amazing. I spoke to you last week about my search for a #8 boot, and now I can add those to the list of candidates.

    The thing about the Jumper is that it's hard to tell what the toe height and last shape look like relative to some of the other lasts. I love the Plaza wingtip for its elegance and the Jumper for its ruggedness. To me the NST is the perfect balance, but alas, no 11D!

    I have a request that will take a little work, but I think it would benefit the forum greatly. Is there any way that you could put a lineup together of the same size of a shell Indy, a Plaza Wingtip in #8, a NST boot, and the jumper in #8 and take some pics from the top and then from eye level, etc--the more pics the happier we'll all be.

    I know this is asking a lot of a busy guy, but it would be greatly appreciated by many of us! Thanks in advance.

    I would love to do so but it's gonna be very hard to get everything in stock at the same time.

    I'll think of something...ok, off to La La Land!

    I totally agree, Rick, but I'm impatient and don't want to wait 6-8 months for the restock. [​IMG]

    Yeah, I'd love to see those, too!

    I wish there were a better way to look at all of the pics of a specific boot that had been uploaded across all the forums... Especially the fit pics.

    Double leather, Trubalance, available for order in almost any size but will be stocking 6-12D.

    No 8E or 8EE? And when will it be in stock?
