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.

    Damm, its dangerous in here. :)
    I bought my first pair of Edward Greens around September 2016, black Chelsea.
    Just took delivery of a pair of Cardiff in chestnut Delapre with Danite soles, last month.
    Already ordered a MTO pair of Hoves in a Dark Snuff suede with HAF soles last week.
    Now I am dreaming of a pair of Sandringhams, Without the thistle in something, possibly burgandy :crackup:

    I've shown love for the thistle here before. IMO, it's what makes the Sandringhams unique!

    Apologies for the delay in getting these suedes photographed. I did my best on color accuracy, it's pretty close. The light to dark brown and sage tones are the bulk of what I order, and are really beautiful. Hope that helps

    A little wear has clarified this without changing very much. The thicker soles have, for the most part, made them shoes to stand on and not be enveloped by. I am still not sure about the thickness of the sole. I wanted a hair more than the rubber alone, and they might have overshot by one layer of leather. These do insulate the feet better, although perhaps the better option for that kind of wear would be a derby so I could actually lace it tight. But break-in has loosened up the sole a bit, which makes the heel stay put more easily when walking. At the same time, the Utah leather is starting to shrink around my feet. It's still not quite so comfy as the C&J Harvards, whose light sole, strong grip on the Achilles tendon, and close fit around the instep and toes makes for an intoxicating comfort when walking-- albeit on smooth pavement! Still, it is not a complete miss.

    It's a classic design, even when it doesn't shout "SF APPROVED!!"

    The one without thistle is called Derwent, it's a different model.

    Another shot of the Dovers yesterday in Kensington Market, Toronto. These things are beginning get very comfortable! They were a bit tight at first but are starting to fit ike a glove. I've realized that I prefer 8UK in the 202 last, but 8.5UK in 82 and 64 last. I might have to swap my 8.5UK 606 DOAK Dovers for 8UK now.

    Are those Banburys @MrVenneri ? Nice fit even beyond the EGs.

    Edit: Just saw they're Silverstones.
