    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.

    For some reason, I'm getting major Visim vibes from those Red Wings. What's the difference between the anniversery Clarks and regular ones?

    They are size 10US. The notiable differences are of course being made in England with better construction and material as opposed to China, leather laces as opposed to nylon, extra support material on the upper collar, shoelace eyelets say "clarks" around them and I believe the sole is darker. Not sure if there is anything else as I've never owned a pair of the new ones. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    All the items fit perfectly, the sleeves are definitely supposed to be that long on the polo (they even made it so you can see the line on the sleeves where they normally would end and how it extends further)

    Blue jacket is plain except for the fact that it is not plain, the pockets are interesting, it's got a texture to it and the colour is a slightly indigo/off version of boring-blue, I'd keep it.

    That henley is in one of my favourite colours, that moss green is very vintage/oldern and to me plays down the 'guido' factor of some henleys.

    Keep everything.

    ^thanks!

    Yes I did, I believe they are all sold out now tho.

    I wear 10.5 in vans/nike and got them in 10 and fit nicely, could probably pull off 9.5 if I had to.

    I also originally wanted them in mahogany but they were sold out of my size, but over all I'm very happy with them.

    Those Clarks look great. The construction looks so much better than the chinese DBs. Too bad they are all gone.


    And is there any stateside retailer of those Red Wing Moc Toe Chukkas?

    Damn I hope my bluebee 70% purchase they shipped is I actually ordered, not something else. The stories have me worried [​IMG]
    I was going to reassure you, that is until they sent me the wrong boots today. Turns out they are SS07, they had both model stickers on the box. [​IMG] One leg rolled and one over the boot for comparison: [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Yeah, I'm going to keep it. Yours will show up, I have no doubt!
    Yeah, it's on its way. Judging from the measurements, the L should fit me pretty well. We'll see! EDIT: Man, I think I finally found an EG hoody that fits perfectly- charcoal in small. Arrived today.

    Those are very nice, they look a bit weird with skinny legs though (it looks like you have very big feet), much prefer them covered by the jeans instead of the jeans tucked in/rolled up.

    Yeah, I still haven't decided whether or not i'm going to keep them as they look huge on my (big) feet. In addition, I just ordered NiCo boots from SS this week which are on their way also. The NiCo ones are quite similar in styling. I'm going to decide before I leave tomorrow whether or not i'm returning them.
