    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.

    I bought these boots from Charles Tyrwhitt. Can anyone comment on how well (or not) they might hold up in the rain? Not to use as rainboots, just if I get caught out in it.

    Would recommend getting a silicone based waterproofing spray (eg Redwing) and treat them before going exposing them to rainy weather. After the initial 3 spray treatment, you should have no worries for a while.

    I bought the same boots and have had no issues since doing the above.

    Hope this helps.

    How did everyone get the Loake-made CT chukkas? I tried grabbing them yesterday but every size was sold out!

    Suede shoes are rain shoes.

    I'm kinda new here. Is that sarcasm? Or are you serious?

    That's the only pic that it would let me post and it wouldn't let me put up a link either.
