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.

    Dark Chili Burnished Strand, Merlot McAllister, Burgundy Shell Franciscan, Sauk Drive, Red Neumok. I don't have anything in Oxblood, but it shouldn't be too hard to interpolate. Lighting sucks, but it's about as good as I can do at the moment.

    Thanks man. This particular pair is JCrew selvedge in 1040 fit. They're perfect for my larger upper legs and smaller lower legs. i also have a few pairs in the old JCrew slim straight which is similar to this, and their Wallace and Barnes low-rise dark rinse, which doesn't work as well for me.

    I also have two pairs of Gustin in the classic fit, which don't work too well for me either, as the thighs are a little too tight and the rise is too low. To get a pair with decent upper leg room, I would have to go up to 37, which would be like 3 inches too big for my waist.

    I'm still new to the denim game. My previous job required suits and OJC fits, and I was told last year by my current boss that I was overdressing just wearing wool trousers, lol....

    Ok, so celebrating the REAL Walnut Wednesday with what AE briefly called "Dark Walnut Cordovan" (otherwise known to the rest of us as simply "brown")

    Jeans or chinos. But I'm only in that office (school) three days per week. I'm home the rest of the week.

    Btw I'm liking the wing pattern on the Sauk Drive. Much less "coneheadish" than Dalton/Long Branch.

    Word. I can work from home myself, I was home yesterday but it gets boring at times. I think I"ll do 3 days office 2 days home when the weather really gets cold. When I'm home I'm in home clothes so my nice attire doesn't get worn.

    I'm moving away from dressy collared shirts to button down since there is no need for them

    Do these look like real shell? I don't own any.... they're on eBay in my size, but need new soles I think.

    Yup. I would only wear non button down shirts with a coat (blazer, sportcoat, suit). Anything else button down is needed IMO.

    Will probably just try and find out for myself, but can anyone say how the overlord compares against the mctavish or black hills? Larger or smaller. Thanks a lot -

    So what have people done for their cordovan special makeups so far? I'm interested in perhaps doing the Cornwallis in burgundy shell... but I don't know my size in that last yet - I only have experience with the 5, 8 and 1 lasts.

    I am always amazed by the creativity of SF members.

    Could you enlighten me about the fit oxford vs derby:
    If Park Avenues (oxford) fit me really nice so that the quarters almost meet when tightened, does the McGregor (derby) have slightly lower quarters so that the shoe quarters have more space between them when the shoe is tightened? Thery're both on last 65.
    (I have quite low instep so usually if a shoe fits otherwise, the girth of the shoe around instep is too big and the quarters meet so the shoe can't be tightened properly. With the last 65 oxfords the girth is perfect for me. I'd love a pair of longwings though but haven't ever tried on a derby on 65…)
