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.

    I would be more interested in the Skye2 than the Lindrick. I would be in for some type of grain leather.

    I am with you. I dress on the more casual side and although I love shell I get more use out of my CXL and suede

    I don't need shell. I like the rough out but am not looking for a wingtip boot as I have a couple.

    That's what I was thinking ;-) Question is, speedhooks or no speedhooks?

    These are awesome. Would a skye look good do y'all think in this?

    I'd be in for either, but I would lean towards a Skye2. Except if we could do a standard lindrick in brown cordovan then I'd jump on that (the largest Ralph Lauren size is 13, which pinches my toes too much). I'd be up for some type of grain leather too. Just out of curiosity, rough-out is a type of grain leather, right?

    Sounds nice, although I want to see what their dark brown scotch grain would look like. Also I need to look into the coniston last and what it looks like.

    At this point, I've got myself confused over what I would want in the next mto. I think I'm going to wait till the whiskey Harlechs arrive and then take a step back and look at my collection and take stock. It's easy to get excited about another mto and lose sight over how much wear the boots would get.

    In all honesty, I've found myself in a position where I think I have too many boots. I sometimes find myself picking a pair of boots to wear in the morning not because I really want to wear those but because I feel in a way guilty that I own them and haven't worn them in a while. Then the boots I really like don't get enough wear (and look too new and pristine).

    I know I can get rid of some of the earlier boots I bought before I became a bit more discerning. I'm not one who's sold boots often so it's a chore for me to go through the process, although the one pair I did sell (a pair of 403 Indys on SF) went quite smoothly.

    I hear you 100%! I am really trying to be more selective but it's soooo hard ;) there is always another makeup I seem to want but yet I don't wear what I have nearly enough. So I went with a pair of PBJ's and Somet's instead...

    BootSpell and rydenfan, my dad over the years acquired quite a few pairs of really nice shoes, and what he would do is instead of trying to select from his entire collection, a good 30 to 40 pairs, is he would have a "rotation" of about five pairs which he would wear for a whole month depending on the weather and the time of the year. That way he wouldn't be stymied in the morning selecting footwear. I think it also had to do with what suits he had in the cleaners and which suits and shoes my mom liked and didn't like. He did this for over the fifty years that I can recall. Weird huh?

    Hey Be, that's actually a really cool idea. In the long run, they all get about the same amount of wear as doing a rotation of the full collection but at least your dad could focus on just the five pairs every morning. I might actually try something like that. Thanks for sharing.

    I've actually been eyeing the Somets for awhile now. But...I already have too many pairs of raw denim. Think I need to focus on shirts now! [​IMG]

    They are awesome! Stiff as hell but I think they will break in nicely. Similar fit to the PBJ 13's but a bit more tapered leg. Very high quality construction. The rise is a bit higher being the biggest different. I looked at the low rises but they are like 9"; not sure what kind of guy wears a 9" front rise, but it's not me ;)
