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.

    Both are wingtip brogue boots but the Islay is made from scotch grain with a Dainite sole and looks slightly different on the sides, heel quarter and the top few eyelets:

    The Lindrick is made from shell cordovan with (I believe) a double leather sole.

    Gotta love the Islay, I'd take it over shell any day. Looking forward to getting my mitts on the Skye in a few days...

    Pair of Belgraves and a couple of BBBF shell wallets. Love the Belgrave last. Fits perfectly without being too tight Gotta have a solid interview/funeral shoe. Just never know when you'll need 'em

    Baaahh. Belgraves are so fundamentally boring to me that I hate to burden this thread any further. Just the mention of Belgrave leaves little to the imagination. They are black

    ok - i'll let you off the hook. I actually like black shoes - but I'll admit they don't photograph all that well most of the time.

    Exactly. They came in looking dry too. Belgraves look amazing with a mirror polish so that's what I attempted to do at 10:30pm. After the second application of shoe cream, I gave up. I'll post a fit pic next week

    you sir, are correct. However the shoes were especially dry so I applied two layers of cream instead of one. I already had the saphir wax out but after the second application of cream, i abandoned the mirror polish. Had to settle for a pedestrian shine

    It can be a tricky thing but that's my understanding - US7.5 on the Barrie is the same as a UK7. I hope that some who has experience in both makes will chime in.

    In my experience the 348 last runs pretty roomy. I would recommend you size down to a 6.5. I presume you would consider your foot to be a normal width?
