    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.

    First wearing of my new-to-me Oxfords. Just over 50 pairs of shoes in and I finally picked up a pair of black captoes. Worth the waiting, as I believe I got the perfect ones. Will work on a better shine now that I'm confident of the fit.

    I know exactly what you mean. I don't have a black captoe in my rotation - on the other hand, I haven't yet reached the 50-pair mark, so there's time ...

    Anyone have Woburns in the wild? For some reason I'm now picky off the proportions...maybe real life pics will help. :)

    @laufer: Thanks! It actually helped as I thought a design was slightly plain but I noticed the subtle single-punch around the throat.
    DUDE! So torn now between the Woburn and the Sandringham! I really prefer the shape of the wingtip and the thistle of the Sandringham but the Woburn is on sale. Argh! :fu: Here are my Canterbury boots. Gray/gray suede. Really don't plan to wear them with jeans but it's casual Friday so I take advantage (Fridays are typically Alden days): [​IMG]

    Thanks! I really like the "museum" finish on them; it's a bonus over a uniform gray. You'll be number one on the list!

    Now I need to figure out if they're too close to my EG Shannon in black/cloud. :satisfied:

    Those are great! I love the two tone with suede.

    In terms of the sandringham vs woburn, what is the price difference? If it is substantial, it may be worth the cost savings if the last for the woburn is a good one.

    sorry. I meant for you, but i guess it is good for everyone else to know what models are available from them.

    They look great! Good choice of styles and leather colors for each of the chosen styles.
