1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    Suggestion from me:

    Prepare all details of the shoes with sample photos and when you repost with updated name of interested folks, put those details always, it helps getting visibility.
    I'm slowing down on my boots game and haven't seen design that's in 'must get' list.

    Maybe zippyh can help on design ideas.

    This sounds good to me:

    black calf/scotch grain
    last 4444
    fit 6
    natural barbour welt
    black danite sole (fine with leather channeled, gumlite or micro sole)

    The rest I'll let y'all decide, I'm probably good with whatever after ^

    The only thing that can be different are the shoe sizes. Widths must be the same.

    Hi,
    I'd be interested in the longwing on 4444 last,size 5 width,especially with the red lining.I'm not sure a Commando sole would look good with this shoe but I'm not totally against it if that's what the others want.

    Barring confirmations about details, it looks like we have enough to go through with a fitting 5 4444 last. I'm going to take the lead and say we'll end discussion on Monday and bring forth our proposal to Richard and send out PMs to interested parties.

    Okay this group order is definitely going ahead for those who want a fitting 5.. The deadline to register interest is tonight US time as I,m going to send the details off to Richard tomorrow morning early European time. Those who register interest will receive PMs tomorrow detailing where to send your shoe size, details, £100 deposit tomorrow early morning as well.

    Below, we have the basically final summary since there have been no objections


    Summary
    Black Scotch grain / black calf shoe
    4444 last
    Natural barbour welt
    Red lining
    /dainite sole
    Black pull tab

    Interest:
    Fitting 5:
    Feji
    Mchigan
    Slonukhi58
    Oven 1969
    Blackmaged

    Fitting 6:
    Badeggcat
    Magdaddy
    Knucks

    We can also do a run of fitting six shoes if there a THREE more people interested.

    not the biggest fan of the black pull tab, but if the majority of the others definitely want it then it's not a deal-breaker.

    are we going ahead with blind eyelets?

    EDIT: also, is there overwhelming interest for 4444 last? i've only messed around with 4497 but i'm worried that 4444 would be a bit too wide and clunky

    EDIT2: decided that the black pull tab is really bugging me, just seems like a frivolous add-on with no real function

    Richard has said that as soon as the orders are confirmed that it will go ahead.

    If, however, you have not yet expressed interest, don't worry, because the order will be OPEN for another couple of months until the final confirmation with the factory later in July. So if you're on the fence there is still time to get in on this, however, for e purpose of actuallu gettng the order throughh, un,ess there is overwhelming dissent, I think we should consider the style and model finalised.
