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.

    Just saw what appeared to be a BB version of the Dundees in oxblood or dark chilli. 40% off retail price, I'd say that's a really great deal if you are in the market for them.

    Wearing my oxblood Strands today and I started thinking I should get a pair of brown shell ones. Love the design and I think the dark brown is really underrated here. Now, I just need to find some cash.

    Those look killer. Straight bar lace them though, will look cleaner

    Thanks, shamefully I haven't invested anytime looking at lacing methods.

    I travel a lot for work and getting through airport security is so much easier with this lacing method instead of bar lacing.

    I don't see them as part of the 40% off sale. Perhaps I am missing something?

    Same as others. 34 should fit you. I'm a true 34 and I'm on the second to last hole in a 34 belt after break in.

    Sadly, I must teturn my last shoebank purchase and haven't had to before. There was no return slip. Does this mean I need to call and get a RA or something?

    Bought the Walnut Strand Double-Flap Briefcase for $237 (second) for my brother for Christmas . . . but it's going to be really difficult to give it away! Just got it in the mail today and it's beautiful.

    My wife bought me one for Christmas - told her "you're getting me what's in this box." It looks great as well. I strongly considered one of the messenger bags. The lack of a handle was a deal breaker for me. I do like the way they look however.

    Also have to return mine :'(

    The toe was deformed and the upper totally misaligned - "garbage" seems to have creeped into "seconds" status.

    Awesome. I put the strap on the briefcase, but it seems a little short. Even on the last "belt" hole (making it the longest possible), it seems a bit short for an over-the-shoulder bag.

    Mine were merely scuffed a little. The real problem was that exactly where they were creasing was where my big toe was. Anytime I took a step walking any direction other than perfectly straight ahead, the side of my toe would get pinched. It felt like something hard was bruising my toe, and initially thought there was a defect in the lining. On further inspection, I determined otherwise. I guess you could call this a fit issue.

    I suppose I'll wait until the next sale and grab a pair of firsts. I was also considering a brown pair of McGreggors on clearance. Any thoughts about brown long-wings with odd trousers and jacket? I'm on the fence with since the color is so dark. I'll probably just wait and get a dark brown FA. I would prefer the Thomastown if they came in brown.
