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.

    In terms of snugness, from most snug to more roomy in my experience

    8695 -> 7000 -> 8000

    Tobacco suede? I've got a pair of those that was supposed to be delivered today, but lousy UPS driver just left a delivery attempt notice without even bothering to knock or ring the doorbell. So now I'm stuck waiting until Monday. :brick:

    Which soles are they?

    I recall a member writing the message on SF regarding this specific model saying- Try to remove the snow salt from a 1.000 USD+ suede boot.- After that post I was never willing to try buying such a expensive boot for a daily use in snow condition. I mean it's not that I'm traveling with the Bus and walk 2 miles to work every day in snowy condition, but still. In calf leather it would be OK, but suede ...

    October Sole and yes, Tobacco Suede. I always pre-authorize "release" with UPS Online. These were lightning fast (15 hours after ordering)...

    Finally made it down to JL, after waiting for Spoo's G&G's to go live. I may go back tomorrow. Anyone looking for something?

    Nice kicks. They had a ton of interesting things on sale. Just nothing in my size.

    They still have size left for the Chambord II boot and the black calf is amazing. It seems the bracken misty calf is running out of size soon.

    Huge fan of bracken misty calf. Just love misty/museum in lighter browns.

    Do you think bracken misty calf will develop a nice patina? I like their black calf as well

    I have no direct experience with bracken but parisian museum is stunning over time. I would think bracken would develop nicely over time.

    Thanks. I also have these. The medallion definitely adds a subtle punch to an otherwise very traditional look.
