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.....

    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 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.
