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.

    Sorry I've been a bit cut off!!

    As @Crat said I had an email from Pernilla regarding the lining. It wasn't what I would have chosen, but give the qualities of the zug it sounds like it's the best way to go. I asked her if she would let everyone else know before shipping, which I guess she is in the process of doing.

    Hopefully will have mine tomorrow....

    I am fine with full lining. It will provide additional insulation, these were supposed to be winter boots anyways, plus I have unlined zug from Edward Green.

    My email was received as well and I agree the lining is a non issue.

    Great pics and nice coloring job. I like how the captoe and counter came out on these.

    Crat what was the process for dying them?

    This is going to be sweet...is the captoe stitching similar to the connistons?

    Thanks, @Crat, for the pics. Certainly increases my anticipation of receiving them. And I don't if it's summer; I'm going to wear them.

    I just used dark brown leather dye and after that some dark brown cream. They went quite dark but like with my other Snowdons the original colour will start to show underneath with wear which will create a nice effect imo.

    The cap is quite different from the Coniston's as it is a faux cap. It is a little longer too.

    @Crat - just that longer bit makes they look more balance than the Coniston - Beautiful boots

    LINDRICK GMTO UPDATE:

    Price will be £583.36. Current exchange rate makes that approximately $836.32. Shipping to US will be an additional £30. Let's hope the dollar stays strong (or gets stronger) against the pound!!

    Timeframe is 16 weeks - end-of-summer delivery = PERFECT!!!

    My expectation is that yes, we will get hit with duty and fees. Unfortunately. Last time C&J shipped via post so didn't pay any fees.

    Typically this is collected at time of delivery? Preferred Method of payment?
