1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

Too Much Going On.....

    For those of us not familiar with the various colors of cordovan, is there a quick guide to see what they look like? Thanks.

    I also have to confess ignorance in that regard, and would love to see the colors associated with different descriptions and numbers.

    It's 3B

    That shoe is called the 'Pisa', and is stocked in black and amber calf....yours must have been a make-up....don't remember who did it in that calf - good looking!

    I'll post a pic of 3B last Chukka in Shell Cordovan in just a bit.

    Ron , are you still planning to be in NYC for the wholesale show? I am only asking because a lot happened recently and your plans might've changed...

    I will be at Hotel Wales from July 22nd - July 28th and will be available for individual appoinments Thursday afternoon, Friday and Saturday morning. I got one of the suites, so should have plenty of room for those of you who visited me at the Hotel Penn. and tried to throw me out of the windows.

    As a potential buyer, I can create a short hand search feature that permits me to, with one click, search for certain designers and manufacturers. I can limit that search to catergories and sizes. For example, I could have a "favorites" search for 16.5 dress shirts limited to Borrelli, Truzzi, Finnamore, Charvet, and Hilditch. The search engine would then pull up all the shirts meeting those criteria and none other.

    The pp seems to be saying that when he constructed a search for shoes that included among the manufacturers Martegani and ran the search, your listings did not appear. I have seen that occur with other sellers for other brands. As to how to fix that, one of the many ebay sellers on this board may have suggestions.
