1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I am definitely in. As for speed hooks, I would be a 'yay', but definitely not a deal breaker.

    And Namor, awesome posting. Thanks for raising the level of excitement and being encouraging.

    Boots will be sent via Parcelforce. Good news at it means less chance of having to pay customs (apparently).

    Still waiting for a photo example of a whiskey boot makeup - I will post it here as soon as I receive it.

    So what did you guys decide for the final make up? Whiskey, double leather soles and speedhooks or not. What about the storm-welt.

    Besides AsianAfro is anybody else interested in pursuing dark brown cordovan with ridgeway soles?

    Can we specify the color/finish of the welt/edging? If so, what is everyone's preference? I think we're going for a 360-storm welt, right? Would an Alden-like antique edging work? Thoughts?

    I'd prefer an antique edge trim but it's not a deal killer.

    I believe we're all in agreement of the 360 storm welt. Antique edge trim with stacked heel is always a good one.

    I am thinking about joining Whiskey crowd too now. This could be all around great make up. Hey guys how many people do we have? Since we are paying in advance maybe C&J could give a free lasted shoe trees for this I now they make lasted 341 shoe trees. Who feels confident in their negotiation skills to give it a try:D
