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.

    Cheers,

    ^Thanks wj4. IMO the Ruby is not true red. It's a dusky hue and not that loud for being a shoe that definitely does have a lot of red in it. I'd try to take another photo, but I don't think my indoor lighting produces true color and I'm not talented enough to correct for it. And NYI has been posting photos of Ruby worn with a great deal of panache, so we have that as a reference.

    I'm pretty much positive that you would wear well and enjoy shoes in this shade. It really is something different. Whether you NEED them is another question. :)

    I love the horizontal cords, Frank. Do yours feel smaller than other Walts? Mine are noticeably slimmer than all of my others.

    Thanks. I really do like these myself.

    They are my first cotton Walt purchase and I went with 34, which turns out to be a little on the slim side for taste. After two other Walts in 34, I've since sized up to 36 in both cotton Walts and Rivet Chinos and I let a few cycles of washing and drying shrink them to fit. :embar: Ha ha ha.

    I did that with this pair and as a result I just had the seat taken out a little to account for too much shrinking. I really like how they fit now, thought they are truly slim to my eye. That being said, I'm not sure if I notice a difference in the fit compared to the other two 34 cotton Walts I have. I enjoy both of those too (butterscotch canvas and those racing green numbers from last spring).

    i know it was asked a few pages back, but never answered. how difficult is it to remove the darts from epaulet shirts? i think the shirts are perfect, but to me, darts are the quickest way to turn a shirt into a blouse. makes me feel like i'm borrowing my girlfriend's clothes. i would just go with the blue label shirts but i don't care for the under collar contrast lining.

    I'm sure I will like the Ruby's. It was a gift to myself since I had to stay in last night to haul butt on finishing a project. Will spend a good portion of today on it as well.

    You need them, man. It will go nicely with your beard.

    I'll probably wear them with shorts too for kicks in the summer.

    I love how the pythons almost read as regular, chestnut colored shoes from a distance.

    I just realized that this short congratulatory recording I had done in the last hours of the old year features an Epaulet shirt (kelly green, bought via the new site). So if you'll excuse me I'll post it so we have something a bit different here (had to run to celebrate so didn't have much time for the takes, hence a couple of bloopers here and there [​IMG])

    Happy New Year to one and all!
