    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.

    Then call me sacrilegious! I'm a big fan of LWB on double sole split reverse welt but that doesn't take away from my appreciation of the MacGregors. In fact I'm wearing mine today.

    Thanks @harlequin782... Please forgive the socks - I was going to go with my Brown Distressed Pine Rivers and changed my mind at the last minute. [​IMG]
    I did have on an olive button down and brown tee, FWIW.

    I know there are some nasty blue suede Greysons absent from that family pic too, right, WI? Dale is the man.[​IMG]

    Haha good eye. I haven't taken a shoe-fie (is that even a word?) of the navy suede Grayson yet. I need 8 more pairs of shoes to get to a 6x6 grid collage.

    BTW, someone mentioned a shoe store (Altman's) closing sale in downtown Chicago that I did to slide past today at lunch; all AE 40% off... Went looking for the good stuff; could only find a black shell Macneil and black shell Leeds in my size...Running about $400, and not in pristine condition (the Macneil was in dire straits). Will go back tomorrow to scrounge for calf and suede! (No Alden in my size.) Folks wearing smaller sizes (8-9.5) would prolly have a shoegasm in there, though... Display models had lightened and #8 shell looked like cappucino; the red was almost totally faded out. A years old #8 shell Bradley made me eager to sit my new Brads in the window for he next few months/year. I can't put the color into words. Maybe a call would be fruitful for some of the smaller footed members here..?

    That's hilarious!!! I was thinking of the symmetry of your pic and wondered if it was intentional!!! OCD even in your shoe-fies!!! (it's officially a word). That's why your suggested MTO's catch fire!!!

    I got these Cronmok boots as a gift in Navy Color and I am not a big fan of that color, so decided to change the color by applying one coat of mink oil on the tongue and I really liked the outcome and this is the end result. I thought it might help/deter someone before doing this same process.

    I presume you've tried this then? I haven't treated my Banchorys at all.

    Those Cronmok's look great with the darker blue, really nice.

    Question regarding Last's -

    Both the Mctavish's and Neumok's run on the 5 last. I recently had to exchange a pair of Mctavish's to go down .5 a size because they were too big.

    Is it safe to assume that I can order Neumok's in the same size and that they'll fit the same as the new Mctavish's?
    Would hate to have to go through the exchange process again (local AE stores are kind of out of the way for in person try ons)

    McTavish is an odd ball. I size in a 8.5D in the 5 last. I tried to size down and it just didn't fit right. Next, I tried the Neumoks. They fit like my other 5 last shoes, maybe a little more comfy, so I bought a pair.

    Look what arrived just now. These are awesome. I sized 0.5 up from my normal 1 last size because of my experience with Indy and these fit perfect.
