    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.

    Wife comes through the garage door. Even when she can't park our car there due to some boxes and stuff we need to move. The other day I got home about 9 b/c I was working late. She didn't even see the AE box left behind by the fedex guy :) .

    what about cappuccino shell with natural welt sole. The cappuccino seems lighter than the dark brown shell. What are your thoughts on this combination?

    Just received my second MTO. I wanted a dress casual boot and selected an older style called the Taunton. I like the simplicity and versatility of the plain toe. The bourbon color is especially attractive with every shade of brown I have ranging from the lighter tans all the way to the darker browns. Some forumites may not like the chelsea boot style, but they really appeal to me. Any comments on these?

    Hi,
    Any idea if the Park Avenues will be again on sale on Amazon again? I friend told me that they were selling for 220 and you could get an extra 20% just a few weeks back! So sorry I missed it[​IMG]

    I agree. Although I did go with a little darker welt/sole edge.

    Me too!

    The logic that varnished shoe trees would be counter productive makes perfect sense to me as well, and I have subscribed to that belief, albeit without any hard evidence.

    However, in a couple of posts in the thread I posted previously (see posts 31 and 32) the question is posed about why plastic trees wouldn't be just as acceptable to use if varnished trees are indeed considered ok. Nobody really had a clear answer, but John Cusey (SF name jcusey) responded with his belief that there shouldn't be any difference. Manton pointed out that all of his bespoke shoes come with varnished trees.

    Who knows for sure. I'm certainly not a xylologist.

    I am happy with the results I get from cedar trees, and I'm happy to stick with the price point of cedar. Cedar certainly isn't hurting anything.

    Damn. I just bought a pair of Grenson Chelseas, but these just put mine to shame.

    If I lived in Madrid, I would go down the street to the Meermin store to get their black captoe on the Hiro last in the classic collection before I would deal with the aggravation of shipping and sizing issues of ordering the Park Avenue from AE.

    It's funny. I love the Bayfield in shell, but prefer the long branch in waxy calf to the Bayfield in CXL. I think it has to do with my perception of a cap toe boot as being more formal.

    Looks like LeviMay has those CXL's shined up pretty good and could easily pass as formal. Or...you could wear them in the woods like Cold Iron. Seems like quite a versatile boot to me.
