Well www.sonofsandlar.com is off the web now.  Anyone know if they're still in business or not?

Suckville.  I'll never get the pair of Sandlars I've been jonesing for if they've changed them that much...oh, wait...you're talking about the booth, not the boots.  Phwew!

I never got the boots I posted about two years ago:

I just called and left a voice mail to them.  Since it's Faire season I'm expecting a call back sometime around Thanksgiving but still - I just want a pair of bog standard brown peasant boots.  Nothing fancy.  We'll see what happens.

Good luck - he doesn't do custom orders for the most part anymore.  You have to buy from existing stock at the Farie's he has boothes at.

I love these boots, I just can't wear them because my calves are to big to fit in the start size 10's I need. I've been trying to get a pair of custom boots done for about 3 years now and I always missed the Que, so sad.

You didn't miss anything, he stopped doing custom work years back, just what's on the shelves.  If your calves are too big see what he stocks at your local faire in low rises or pick up a pair and then have a leatherworker eithe rshorten them or widen the leg - I've serious doubts you'll ever get a custom pair out of SoS.  Their work is fantastic and durable as all get out but what's on the shelves is all you have a choice from anymore.

I wish that they'd stock a wider calf.  I kow that we're not the only ones that would like them.  There's been so many postings over the years that are asking where to get a wider calfed boot.  I for one, love my pirate garb, but it'd look much better with a pair of Sandlar buckle boots.  ::sigh::  Bob's fit me, so I might just buy them and try to stretch them.  I only need another inch or so...

Per the weekend report of my Super Secret Spynet that infiltrated the Faire this weekend Sandlar is not even doing brown anymore, just black and just what's on the shelves..  Brown is now a "custom order" which, translated from Sandlar Salespeak, means they're not doing it at all. 

Mutha effah.

Actually Ana has the same issue. So she ordered one of their Catskill knockoffs and they are adding leather to accomodate... She has a custom pair from years ago... But getting them to do custom pair of their normal styles is nigh impossible now.

It's a shame gas is so expensive, I'd take a drive to where ever they are located in Georgia and put in an order in person.

heh, and then you'd have to wait probably two years to get it.  I gave to them a minor repair last year and didn't recieve them until the day before the faire I work at opened.  The specifics as to the why's for taking so long I'll keep off the board, but if it took them that long for the repair, it'll be at least double for the custom ;)

Sandlar is like Moresca... If you go into the the booth and like something, BUY IT! Don't even bother ordering something...

Great stuff, awful customer service.

We gotta open Customer Service School on a few of these vendors.  Dmitri, fetch me the infinate roll of duct tape, the 20 pound live halibut and the 5 gallon tub of Cuitlacoche.  We'll get them to understand why customer displeasure is a bad thing.

Were they the Sandlar style or their Catskill knockoffs?
