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.

  2. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    New Vass shoes size 44. U last, old london, aged cognac. With shoe trees and bags but no box. Shoe measures 12.25 inches long and 4 and 1/8 inches wide (outside measurements). I wear 44 (11) in mantellassi and 10 1/2/11 in RLPL. These are very tight for me; now I know I'm a 45 in U lasts. You should probably be a size 43 to fit in these. They are gorgeous. I bought them for $845. Since the going rate is $750 shipped, then I'll take a loss and $750 shipped it is (domestic).

    those are gorgeous.

    havent seen that color before.

    yes, for the U last, you must size up a half or full size.

    i got a 43 once before and i am a size 10 and the 43 does not fit! it is extremely too tight.

    43.5 would have been a fully snug fit and the 44 is very comfortable on me as well.
    i would get these but i am in the process of getting several pairs myself at this moment.

    trust me 750 is a DEAL on these.

    Agree, these are great looking shoes.

    Brian, were the 43s tight in the lenght or the width or both for this last?

    I believe there was a pair of suede, or partial suede Vass that I saw in perhaps one size. There weer a couple of pairs of Lobbs, I believe for $499 in three styles, 1 pair of loafers, and a couple of their more countrified walking type shoes, (sorry I did not make note of the models), and there was a Zegna leather and crocodile shoe, in 3 sizes, for $899. I did not ask if they expected additional stock.

    I think there is a thread on the Forum where someone posted more detail on the sale, but I think, and the other psoter thought, that the sale was unimpressive.

    yes, this was at 603 Washington.
