    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.

    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.

    Hopefully, Italy will get me real nice pics tomorrow of everything on hand. Otherwise I will crop out existing shoe pics and make jpg swatch images. On Monday the factory is sending me one of every shell for me to cut swatches.

    As for model....you name it. It's not a bad idea to throw some ideas at me and I will post themed pics.

    Themed idea Numero UNO:

    Best last for Chelsea boot? 3b? 42?

    (I am leaning towards something semi-chieseled, round lasts like 46-42 look more country-boot) Please advise as I ma not aware of all options yet.

    Ah, I was getting ready to post this pic, as I would LOVE for someone to jump on this pattern - with the Treccia stitching (I am going to post some pics of how we do this tomorrow), but to answer your question about which last, how about going in between 3B and the 4- series lasts and consider 35?

    I don't know about a Chelsea on 3B.....what do you think?

    [​IMG][/IMG]

    This is 42.....

    I prefer either 35 or 46....this just arrived for Fall Stock (called 'London'...original, huh?)

    The 35 looks like a great happy medium between the 46 and 3B have you got any links to shots of this last. Ive got a couple 3Bs already ....

    $900 before the discount.....$750 for the pattern and $150 for the hand Treccia (Norvegese). We do the stitch work very nice, also....ties directly into a thick insole.

    I like 3B and curious about 35. Would need to see overhead and profile shots please.
    Is it possible to make instep less prominent? Kind of dial-in instep a little to make it slimmer?

    I will post a series of pics tomorrow on the blog.

    It is a good in-between last.....can't lower the instep though - higher yes, lower no.
