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.....

    Well, have made first post on new blog (http://italianleathergoods.wordpress.com/)
    but I cannot seem to upload any pics....on either site. I will continue to get into that, but in the meantime you can see the offer, price list, etc.

    Spoke with the factory numerous times today, and we have decided to simplify the price list (basically is $700-$725 for shoes and $725-$750 for boots) and for this offer we have agreed to take $100 off every order and, most interestingly, are going to combine the new lasted shoe tree program into this offer! Free lasted shoe trees with each order ($95 will be the retail outside of SC orders) and Saphir choe care products will be in the box! I think it sounds very interesting, as all the initial orders we hope to take with this will be specials. There will be no make-up charge with any of the orders placed with me by July 15th.

    Now, if I could only manage some pictures.....

    Here are a few more shots of samples delivered....

    This sounds very interesting. Can you explain a bit more? We can basically order any color SC (what are the exact options?) and any style (which ones?) in our size? Are they made on specific lasts? How do we figure out our size? Thanks!

    Yes...everything is made to order....whatever size you need!

    Yes...any color I have on-hand. The blog lists all available colors. Any pattern in my archives...any style we can do, really. We have a large variety of lasts...if you have not worn our shoes before, the process usually is:

    you send me some ideas about what you would like
    I send some pic files back and we decide a little bit more what you would order
    You tell me about your size/fit issues
    I send some try-on shoes after the deposit is made and you call me and we discuss.
    I place order, we wait 3-4 months and then we deliver the shoes.

    That's kind of the condensed version...let me know via email what specific questions I can answer for you.

    Thanks!

    Brand new wingtip pattern! Yes, 46 last - it looks good, I think...a little different for us w/o the perfed quarters.

    The chukka looks much better in person....had a hard time picturing that for some reason. Mahagoni with gold cream shows off the brown tone of the leather that I don't think showes in the pics.

    The last one, either as a plain toe or an Oxford would be my choice. I'd like a pair of boots first of all, but something taller than the ankle boots shown before.
