    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.

    Have a pair of Andrew McD's, great shoes for a great price. He's worked with Harnden, and is inspired by artisans like Poell though there aren't many similarities. Great guy as well, with a real cosy store.

    Are they super thick? I'm looking for some real thin insoles to throw in my Guidi baby calf boots. It can't be much though as they're already about my size.

    Also, which color do you get? Might try a pair out

    Probably going to need some for my donkey derbies. Since I sized up to 43.5. Need to locate these super feet!

    Also, do you guys put any protectant (sno seal, etc) on your boots/derbies before wearing? I haven't put any on my Guidi boots and got caught in some pretty heavy rain today. Don't seem like they're affected, but curious as to what you guys are doing?

    I have some tacco leather insoles- I use on my Carpes; they are really, really thin. I think they come in different colors.

    I don't anything- the baby calf on your Guidi's will look great some wear IMO-

    Oh yeah for sure, I look forward to the 'wear' showing.......I just don't want anything negative to happen to the leather though and cut its life short. Think I'll be ok?

    I've had a ton of CPs......don't do that shit. If you want BOOTS, that's definitely not the way to go. I'd say used Guidi is going to be your best bet in that range. You're going to have to be patient though and wait for your size to pop up.

    Neither one of those are worth that price, seriously.


    Eh.....gitman shirts and chinos are NOT going to rock 'rugged' boots at all man. That's just not a compatible look...something like that is going to vibe better with chukkas, sneakers, brogued boots, suede derbies.....all that stuff, a 'softer' look per say.

    Oh the other hand, a pair of black guidis, your APCs, a white v neck and that TOJ would look dope as hell.



    EDIT-Erk those aren't worth retail. On 50% sale, yeah, good choice.

    thanks for the tips man!! i was looking at these 2 but they dont have that solid appeal look. Will Guidi be suitable with my outfit tho ? I usually wear gitman shirts and chino and APC PS, but will be getting TOJ minimalist DR and bomber
    After seeing this, I'd suggest the Ricard boots from Paul Smith.
