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.

    Cheers,

    FEDEX just delivered my Walnut/Bone Broadstreets. I'm wanting to give them a nice conditioning and polishing before the maiden voyage. I need some advice on best practices to care for these.

    Fabian, I think you are reading my last post out of context. I had earlier written:

    Quote: Fabian, I truly thank you for mentioning the sale - it has driven more discussion between all of us.

    Again, thanks.

    David

    You may want to go with a high price second choice item and buy it at $125 - then sell them on eBay or Amazon or here on the forums. Or a gift to a friend.

    I could sell the Long Branch all day long at $150 plus shipping on eBay.

    Take a look at the list of available stock again and then look at the photos. Something might jar your thinking.

    I was actually thinking of doing just that, in which case the Dalton in grey is the most expensive thing on the list.

    I've looked at every single picture I think, still no luck. Only the Spiaggia in navy is a small possibility.
    The most bothersome part is after the phone call they sent me a new list and the Elgin that I can't have is still on there just taunting me.

    Whenever I hear of a store suggesting a color - sight unseen on how it will appear - I get real cautious. Now I use the Saphir Color Guide, which matches the colors to near perfect by placing the color guide hole over the shoe.

    CLICK HERE

    Or, order one in the mail to keep.

    You may want to keep the Dalton. You could experiment with color waxes to give it a unique shine. And it is a boot that can be worn with just about any pants.

    The chromexcel bayfields are temping with 2 for $250. A player shoe or lubbock would make a good second choice. But I just bought a pair of red wings....

    My heart was set on the Elgin and I couldn't let it go, so I ordered a first quality pair at $197 & and a seconds Cognac McTavish with the 20% off coupon. Dropped the 2 for $250 deal altogether.
