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.

    Geez, I had two MTOs go in in June, and still no word of them yet -- before the anniversary even. :( Talk about getting antsy.

    I would guess that either end of this month or before year's end for you. But I do recall that they go on holiday in December, but i don't remember how long it lasts.

    Lovely subtle color differences on the heel and toe box! Do you use different polishes? (Not sure if you covered this in a previous post...) Thanks!

    I had asked for some extra burnishing when I first ordered them, and I use a bit of navy cream on them.

    Thanks. Hmmm, I have navy cream, time to start using it on (slightly) lighter colors like cherry!

    Oh I really hope I don't have to wait until next year. :( Keeping my fingers crossed for the upcoming week or two.

    Navy cream is by far my most-used colour - it's fantastic on my brown shoes, vintage rioja, racing green. I use it on just about all shades that are darker than a medium tan.

    I'm not one to doubt the Decoman by any means...but when I evaluated how much I had spent on shoes vs. how much I spent on leather care products I felt it would behoove me to deepen the latter investment. Now I realize it's probably a bit excessive to have just about every damn pigmented polish Saphir produces...but when I leveraged the Decoman's preferred sock retailer (I still can't pronounce the name for the life of me...I refer to them as Massachusetts Rogues for simplicity) the prices were too good to refuse.

    Just to vouch for M.R. - A single jar arrived broken and after I contacted them they immediately sent out a replacement, no questions asked. Outstanding customer service.

    Good to know. Right now, I only have the guts to use it on dark reds. Black is on that list, but I think I'll try the v-oak too. It's about time to polish some shoes!

    So how do you store all the products without it disintegrating to a huge mess & becoming extremely unorganized

    See how the waxes are higher than the jars of cream? They're ontop of a hollow cedar box...I store them inside said box.

    Oh by all means, doubt away. I find doing it at least 3 times a day to myself does wonders for my sanity! :lol:

    I went for 2 pairs of Burnhams in MH71. One in the extreme Beluga patina and the other in pearl grey.
