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.

    I remember someone in the AE MTO thread got them to line his Patroit in natural shell during the trunk show madness. After all the required remakes due to errors, I bet they were wishing they hadn't wasted the leather doing stuff like that...

    Yeah, I have considered that as well. It would have to be sewn together in a tasteful manner, patchwork and what not.

    I read here on SF where @stevent was talking about trying to get one made.

    Thanks.

    More of a dream. I could see bomber done if a few pieces stitched together? And sleeves would probably have to be calf.

    Maiden voyage for these antic cognac shell cordovan bals - so comfortable. The P2 last combined with Vass' soft insole/sockliner = heaven for my feet. For sizing reference, I took these in P2 last size 41, and I wear 41.5 in U, 8 UK in Simpson, 8.5D in most AE lasts, 8D Alden Barrie/Trubalance, 8.5D Alden Aberdeen/Hampton/Grant/Plaza).

    I ordered these last August in person in Budapest, and they arrived in October. Haven't gotten around to wearing them yet, but today is the day. Specs are = Model 5200, Antic Cognac Shell Cordovan, P2 last, HAF (double-to-single) sole, rubber toe tap with brass nails.

    Has anyone tried to convince Vass to make a modified OEII model like Edward Green's Oriel (not necessarily featuring faux seams)? A wingtip version of the OEII.
