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.

    Yes! I have had these boots now for maybe 2 years...and they have taken on some really nice depth and color variation.

    I cannot wait to see how they will appear in 5 and 10 years...

    Hey guys so I've been eyeing a pair of handgrade that is only available in France cowdray 2.

    I am also eyeing a pair of suedes thinking of something very comfy so cranford 3, now here is the thing in UK the have soft rubber soles and in France they come with single leather soles.

    I assume soft rubber would be super comfy, but how do they feel compared to danite and how do they hold up?

    Thanks

    "anti-shell campaign"?? Did I miss something that rydenfan posted? I just hope my stock Harlechs develop patina like those Skye 2's.

    I am trying not to buy as much shell. Truthfully, I don't wear what I currently own nearly enough. With two young kids I don't seem to find the time to properly maintain my shell, and also find myself reaching for my CXL and suede makeups on a much more frequent basis. All that being said my new Trickers shell should be arriving any day ;)

    Not as much shell? That's just crazy talk.

    You haven't received your teak Tricker's yet?

    Which C&J last is best for a wide foot? Is there one, or am I stuck with MTO?

    I find last 335 very roomy with boots/ derby shoes like Islay and Cardigan 4 built on.

    Wearing my Lowndes today, the 348 fit amazingly well.

    PSA: Lift your feet when walking in stairs. :fu:
