1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    Cheers,

    well the price was really good, CAD$ 800 for JL and St. Crispin's, but only 2 pairs of size 5 in there and both were copped. you can email info@leatherfoot.com to check if they have anymore left.

    meanwhile, I have a pair of size 5 Aubercy monk strap for sale now, http://www.styleforum.net/t/523610/...ngle-monk-leather-sole-size-uk-5-us-6-eu-38-5, PM if you are interested, I am open to all reasonable offers[​IMG]

    Emailed leatherfoot, and they have a pair of Phillips II in 5 UK for $700. :slayer: Amazing shoes, and I wouldve 100% jumped on it had it been in a walnut color.

    Manasdirge, GL on the Aubercy monks, they look pretty great but I don't think I can pull them off.

    well I saw that one too, but I don't need much black oxfords neither, great price though.
    Good luck on the hunt for size 5 shoes, Keven! Don't forget to come back and share with us the deals you find![​IMG]

    I'm a US 7 and tried JL in 6E and they were just a hair voluminous. I've always wanted to try them on 5.5E although I don't think they'll fit well.

    Did have a question - where do you guys get your shoe trees? Can't seem to find any that would fit my shoes :angry:

    Here are a few sources:

    1. The Armoury, Hong Kong - starts from UK 5.0. HK$400 a pair when I bought six pairs a couple of years ago. Alas they now stock Carmina shoes trees instead. Size 5 currently out of stock. https://thearmoury.com/catalogs/shop/accessories/shoes/carmina-perni-0001-shoe-trees Cheaper to buy directly from Carmina http://www.carminashoemaker.com/shoe-care/mens-shoe-tree

    2 Herring Shoes - I got their old version when they went on sale. .http://www.herringshoes.co.uk/product-info.php?shoeid=1482&brandid=6

    3. Bodileys of Northampton stocks C&J shoe trees in size 5: http://www.bodileys.com/accessories/shoe-trees/c-jshoetree.html

    4. If you're feeling adventurous, try Taobao:

    Awesome. Do you speak Chinese? Don't think the site is easy to navigate for a non Chinese speaker

    Yes, you have to be located in china and speak Chinese, the sellers are from China mainlands.
