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.

    All I know is that when Lauren gets the last CC # it will be finalized...

    Sorry...

    This is what its like when 2 dozen men, from all over the world, agree to pay hundreds of dollars for a pair of shoes that they have never saw in person, some of whom are completely oblivious to their sizing and specifications that they all tentatively agree on to varying degrees, to a woman in London...

    Thanks.

    After the current (June) Harlech run, the next available whiskey will be September. Perhaps we should start thinking about what we need/want? I would be fine with a whiskey Dundee (with speedhooks - @DavidLane) but would be open to other ideas too...

    Galway will be awesome in whiskey. What'd be even better is if they can add split seam and make it NST (though I have no idea if that's a possibility or not).

    Another option would be a chukka on sleeker last like brecon..

    If a handsewn split toe was added to the Gianni I'd say it would very very hard to resist. But a Lindrick or Skye would be awesome as well :D

    I have requested Lauren to give me a price for a Whiskey Cordovan Chukka on the 335 in case anyone was interested.

    Specs would be:

    Chepstow model in Whiskey Cordovan
    335 Last
    Light Antique storm welt
    Brown Dainite

    Since the harlech guys have reserved the next batch in June, the next batch after would be around Sept as Hoit has mentioned.

    I've seen posts requesting a whiskey chukka in the past so here is an opportunity.

    And to the Harlech guys, you better make sure you send over payment info when she asks for it because she mentioned it's really first group to pay that reserves the next batch.

    I believe Chepstow is made on 325 last. I might be interested in this.

    I requested it to be made on the 335 to get a slightly broader toe area.

    I doubt they will. In any case I prefer 325 last.

    I seem to recall reading that shell can't be made into a split toe such as this.

    I've asked before and apparently they are not able/willing to create a split toe in this manner. I was very disappointed.

    The same with EG, perhaps they can go and learn something from Alden.
