    I would honestly assume he is just slammed right now. Maybe an overwhelming response for their product now that people have been posting and sharing their thoughts. Word is out.
    Call them tomorrow if you need a fast answer

    I can confirm that Vince is extremely busy right now. He received a bunch of orders in late September/early October. A few days ago I inquired about an order I placed on 10/8/15 and was told it would be a few more weeks.

    Vince is crazy busy right now which is why he's also looking for help. I don't think he usually does too many emails over the weekend and he's probably got hundreds to go through. Also, he has a gmto through Reddit to fulfill and I think he got his leather shipment really late which through off the timing. I hear he's working some long ass days and nights.

    Yea he seems swamped for sure...my last boot order I paid and told him delivery whenever was fine. I just wanted to reserve the leather. I am hopeful he will stick with the customization and just lengthen the time for delivery. The downside to him being so busy is not delivery time for me just that it will probably be harder for him to release a new boot pattern.

    Not sure if it is possible given how the toe is formed but man a NST boot with stitchdown construction would be just killer.

    Yea, I placed my order 10/2 and he apologized for taking longer. I told him no biggie. An NST stitch down would be killer tho!

    Nice choices. I thought he'd really want to sell you some boots in the long run. ;) Hope they work out well for you.

    Thanks mate, I thought I'd go with the original setting just to be safe, I am not the most creative kind of person.[​IMG]

    I finally made my decision and order a pair of smooth mohawk with black CXL tongues! It's my very first fancy boots :D I think I made a good call on using black leather to give more spice.

    Darkened Natural Roughouts with a collapsing, unstructured toe box. These have broken in very well.

    Sweet. I think I'm going for an unstructured toe also. Just waiting for this leather list to go live. There is some good stuff on it.

    What turnaround times are people seeing now? Is it really 6-8 weeks? I better order my next pair if I want to see them before the summer.
