Patrick, you beat me to posting the link. Last week I had a kidney remove. When I woke up in recovery I asked where the museum green shoes were. For some strange reason I thought I was visiting TLB. I have four pair in the Artesta line. Couldn’t be happier with them. Found out Friday the cancer was stage 1 and didn’t spread. Time to buy more shoes. Rusty

How long does it take for TLB shoes to be shipped in your experience? I placed an order a little more than a week ago and I have not even got a shipping confirmation. This seems a tad much. The shoes are from the ready-to-wear Artista collection.

I have always had a fast experience, but over the months there have been several people on this thread who said the exact same thing you just said. It is probably that that particular style and size you ordered was out of stock, but TLB is not able to update their website that efficiently. Everyone else you had this problem seems to have gotten the shoes in 2 or 3 weeks, from what I can tell.

Don't forget there's a lot of Easter things going on around here right now. In Sweden for example we have been closed from last Friday until tomorrow.

Emailed Toni about any grey leather options in the near future and he got back to me with this suede. Available for MTO I think you just need to email him first since it's not on the site yet. Probably going to order a pair of cap toe boots in it soon.

From my experience getting 2 pairs of shoes from them (exchanges because of sizing/fit issues, but I digress back to what I was saying) If it takes time, it's because the shoes you ordered, whether from Mainline or Artista, are being created. I don't think TLB makes shoes en-masse and just leaves them sitting around waiting to be bought. I think, again based on my experience, once they receive an order, they create the shoe, and send it out. This all happens rather quickly btw, and as Patrick and others have mentioned -- if you have any concerns, just shoot Toni an email and ask him about lead times, he is fantastic to work with.

It is a shame that his (Mainline) sizing didn't work for my feet, as TLB's customer service is fantastic, and I would love to give them my money.

Shoot him an email.

I'm in the same boat! I've only tried the Artista so far but the sizing didn't work for me, I think I'll need to try some of the mainline lasts before giving up on them though. They make good shoes for a good price, and the customer service seems excellent.

I thought about trying the Bryan, and some of the other lasts, the only thing is.... I am just so :inlove: enamored by the toe on the Alan, it really sucks that it didn't fit

Just look at that toe :inlove: :inlove: :inlove: :worship2:😍😍😍:

I’m looking at the brown suede NST on the Goya last and wanted to confirm sizing recommendations. I’m a 7.5UK in Rain/Sineu/Oscar and 8.0UK Simpson (all fit pretty well) and 7.5UK in L&T S/T/H lasts. I assume I’m a 7.5UK in Goya? Any fit comparisons to Carmina lasts?

What’s the difference in the old English colors, and the museum colors? They appear the same to me???

Might be wrong but I believe their Old England is hand painted crust vs museum which is aniline dyed and a little bit more stable so to speak. Someone else might be able to answer if I’m wrong. Also tapping in @j ingevaldsson to verify since he’d know best of anyone and I see in another thread he’s on

Yup, correct. Both differ a bit between hides/pairs, sometimes they can look really similar, sometimes more clear difference. But when you see them in person it's clear that OE is hand finished and museum calf is not. In general, if you like one of them, you like the other.

I think your size would be 7.5 UK.
You could ask Toni via e-mail on TLB website.

Is everyone going with half size down on their TLB ML and AL loafers?

Also, opinions needed -- Old England Medium Brown vs. Burgundy for a) versatility and b) appearance?
