    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.

    Wait, I thought we went over this all a few weeks ago? Basically how for Kolecho's most recent round it was $650 for calf due to the Euro. They are normally $700. That includes worldwide shipping.

    I have a pair of those, also bought from Sartoriale. If you need MTO proxied, I recommend kolecho, he's destroyed my wallet many times.

    Kev, the model you want is called a French Oxford.I would recommend a 41.i bought the boot version when i was there this week and had to size up from a 41.5 to 42 as its in the U-last.Fits me perfectly,I would post some pics for you tomorrow.

    If you want to proxy, I have a friend in Budapest who is 10 mins away from Vass.Mr Vass knows him and has met him and he gives good sizing advise.He will proxy it for USD600 and accepts Paypal.Plus he brings sketches of your feet and discusses it with the sales manager there.

    I saw a navy version and it was drool worthy :slayer:

    This is likely P2. The toe appears to be longer and narrower at the end than on 3636.

    I've been in touch with Rezs┼Ĺ today inquiring about a potential order. Turns out that they've temporarily suspended the production of cordovan boots, bummer.

    Unfortunately not. I guess that it might have something to do with the availability of cordovan since it's only temporary. Then again, he did say that they were still making cordovan shoes. In any case, I sent him another email asking if the stop was just for high boots or if it applied to ankle boots as well. It's a shame in any case, I want a pair of the austerity brogue boots that Pikachoo posted earlier in the thread.

    I've been lucky enough to place an order on the same boot as you are reffering to with some makeup, whiskey shell*.
    That was 3 weeks ago.

    *That was a choce between saddle, whiskey and cornac and Rezso stated that whiskey had the darkest shade.

    Nice NAMOR! Coincidentally I also ordered a pair; however, calf, since I wanted to get the size right. Mine, black calf Austerity wingtip with a curvy thing on the side: [​IMG]

    Learn your technical terms man, that is a curvy thingy. I would have thought that by now you would have learned a little something around here. You are such a dissapointment to me.
