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,

    I imagine they're making much less per pair than the retailers. VOLUME :rotflmao:

    The Massdrop is tempting but I really don't need any more boots. If there was a grain option, that might change my mind. Hopefully this is the first of many Vass x MD MTOs. I'd be down for a F last cap toe or adelaide.

    You might have a point there.

    I guess I won't be ordering then. I wonder if there was some sort of misunderstanding and Vass just thought it was a group buy for 20 pairs, not a 20 pair minimum. With a 7-8 week turnaround on single MTOs now, I would be surprised if they were prepared to handle an order of 100 boots in addition to their usual schedule and still make that Feb. ship date.

    Congrats to all who got their orders in though!

    I saw that in the discussion. I'm guessing, as others have said, that there was some miscommunication. This is a GMTO, so relative to others, 20 pairs is already a very large order.

    On the brighter side, I suppose closing at 20 orders will help avoid longer lead times times for those of us who order direct or from a 3rd party. I would be bummed out if Vass quoted me a 12-15 week time all because they received a GMTO of 50+ shoes.
