    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 haven't kept track of the frequency, but it's a heck of a lot more frequent than on any of my Alden's. They do dry out quickly.

    with all dude respect, the caps are gleaming, but the creases seem to be bloomin like an outback steakhouse onion. Is that the paste wax build-up you're referring to, or did they just not mind the creases?

    I'm 32 and think I'm still too young for tassel loafers.

    25 here, have been wearing tassel loafers for awhile. I'm planning on picking up the marlow tassels if they're 30+15 off. So no, I don't think you're too young

    if you think you dont look good in tassels now, then you probably never will. only difference is that youll be older and just may not care anymore. lol

    I am 32 and I rock two pairs of tassels. Cordovan is to prefer.

    For me the curious thing is that I used to like tassels when I was younger, now at 26 I absolutely prefer penny loafers, but not for a matter of age, just pure aesthetic.

    I don't understand the thought behind "I am too young to wear X". Are you afraid you'll be mistaken for a 70 year old? Not likely. Are you worried that your peers will make fun of how you dress? They probably do already. Do you think they won't look good? Then you shouldn't want to wear them at all.

    No lo comprendo.
