    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.

    The doorbell rang right after my last post and the darling USPS lady was there with my boots! Just had to open them up and take a peek. Looks like I received the older C&J trees rather than the new one they just came out with. But I'm okay with that. The boots are quite magnificent. Darker than Alden whiskey and definitely lighter than the Alden ravello --- almost like a toffee or light caramel. Can't wait till some patina builds up on these.

    Will have to wait till later as I must attend to some work but I did take a few pics.

    Bootspell, outstanding sir, simply outstanding! Bully for you! Gee whiz, talk about non-buyers remorse. Oh God Oh God, I think I'm going to be sick.

    Wow, those are awesome. Congrats. Any impressions on the fit? Can't wait for mine to get their toe taps and to get shipped my way.

    Thanks, chipshot. No charge so far. The USPS lady needed a sig for delivery confirmation but that's all I signed (I think [​IMG]).

    hoit1981, [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]!!! Thanks for the inspiration to get this going and keeping it on track. [​IMG]

    Thanks, Be.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to post pics. I think about 10 people just let out a collective sigh of relief when they saw their awesomeness. I'm anxious as I haven't tried on a 341 lasted boot before. I imagine my Skye's fit much differently since they are 335 lasted. Here's to hoping they fit me :)

    So my Whiskey Harlechs have finally arrived! And they look gorgeous!!! It's getting pretty dark here in the east cost, so I apologize for the crappy pic from my iphone.

    GODDAMMIT!!! Got home and have a delivery notice - someone needs to be here to sign for this damn thing. I'm so pissed I don't have these 'effing boots today. Now it looks like I'll have to be late for work tomorrow so that I can get these from the post office.
