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.

    Don't be too envious of the shine. Some of that is the camera flash and working the color editing and contrast and they are a great deal more "normal" without it. Hey, if you are going to post "shoe porn" you need to make them look as good as possible.

    I just received a pair of Dalton's in Oxblood and they're beautiful, but felt really roomy inside with dress socks.

    Fortunately Costco has some smartwool-type merino blend socks on sale for the fall/winter, and these thicker socks fit the boots perfectly for me. Now they're very comfortable and fit well!

    I just realized - what do you people in the north use in the winter? Do you ever wear leather soles - even just on the sidewalks - or is there too much worry of salt damage?

    Came across the weybridge's at BCF today. DEFINITELY corrected grain. And didn't even feel like good corrected grain. 99 marked down from 295. I passed. Really cheap feeling and plasticy

    Thanks a bunch! Sounds like I might not even want them for car to office duty then and keep just using the Recon. At -20C, which is pretty normal here in winter it takes a while to get warm in the car and even the Recons can't really keep my feet warm since I'm not walking but just sitting in the car. If I actually walk in them even -40C is doable.

    Saved a search on ebay just now ;)

    And here are the after polish photos. The color didn't change that dramatically - that's due to a better camera and better lighting. But the cleaner/conditioner and polish definitely took away the cloudiness and deepened the color.

    How to these photos look to you guys? I'm selling these on eBay, but I'm still pretty new at photographing shoes. I don't have any burgundy or neutral polish, so I just cleaned these with Allen Edmonds's cleaner/conditioner.

    The pictures look OK. I would suggest a picture showing the soles, the footbed (at least the heel area inside shoe), and maybe a close-up showing the size and style number info.

    Cordovan Shell Westchesters just came in the mail today...can't find any reasons on first inspection as to why they are "seconds," so I
    m very pleased about that...can't wait to hit them with the Mac Method and get these guys shining!

    The fit is fairly TTS...maybe ever so slightly on the wide side. Debating on whether my left foot needs a tongue pad or just needs to be broken in to avoid the heel slippage...

    Very pleased!

    After what seemed like an eternity (8 days actually), my brown burnished Leeds arrived this evening.
    The dark brown combined with the simple design really looks good. I tried them on and they fit well -- although they are not as "snug" as I expected.
    I think I'm going to wear them tomorrow.

    Personally I would not. First - you risk any residue getting on your pants and / or shirt. Second - the belt is probably not going to see any water.

    Just my .02

    Slowly building up my shell collection during these sales. My humble count is up to 4. I hope to add a pair or 2 more in a lighter walnut/whiskey shade and I'll be good. The Dundees are my latest acquisition.

    Do you expect the belt to get wet?
