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.

    Who does the final leg of delivery? Trying to gauge if I'm gettin it today.

    Really though, this hassle could've been avoided with promptly sending out tracking.

    Don't worry it just adds to the suspense! [​IMG]

    Glad that you are happy with your first shells. Great choice.

    Glad it's starting :)

    I guess ParcelForce is like the Royal Mail, things gets handed over to the USPS for delivery in the US. Just on my way out to dinner with friends so hopefully mine will be here when I get back home tonight. If not, then I'll damn the USPS to Hades!

    Do you guys ever stare out your window waiting for the delivery guy, and then nonchalantly NOT pounce on the door when he arrives?

    Hitting f5 to refresh this thread just isn't as satisfying as a tracking page.

    laufer, congrats to you on your first pair of shell. Man, you didn't hold back on your first pair, did you? Went for it with gusto! I wonder if you're the first and only one to receive theirs today? I've been checking the mail every day since Thursday just hoping. Now it will be Monday (I hope).

    And yes, it would have been nice if tracking numbers had been sent out. That wasn't a very cool thing to do to these "crack starved monkeys".

    Man, I just went back through this thread to refresh my memory of what C&J's whiskey shell looked like and wow! I am really anxious to receive my boots!! Take a look at Namor's post (#104). He shows a C&J loafer in their whiskey shell. Great patina. This is pretty much a grail boot for me.

    Hoit, glad you posted those pics of the shell swatches after visiting the NY store. It was from then that we morphed this MTO to become a whiskey Harlech. I will thank you more profusely when I receive the boots. And maybe even [​IMG]

    depending on how C&J responds to my recent McCallum quality inquiry, I'd be down.

    proactively, how do most take the Cheviot in relation to alden barrie?

    TIA
