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.

    Like this: The middle sole covers the section under the foot, but does not go up into the waist.

    Picked up these Trickers Chelsea boots from their eBay shop.

    Coffee Brown, with what Trickers describe as a London Waist. The waist is quite narrow and has a bevel on it.

    They've been worn a couple of times and are very comfortable, a bit of saphir on the toes has bought out the burnishing.

    JM Weston Triple Sole Wingtip Derby

    If you like "Gunboats", this is probably the grandpappy of 'em all.

    Westons are generally pretty "vanilla", I think. However, this model + the Hunt Derby (Norwegian stitched split-toe) are definitely attention grabbers.

    I don't think a C&J Drummond is a good substitute for the Inverness. First, because it's a C&J and not an EG, which is IMO a steep downgrade (not a C&J hater, I have multiple pairs and they're great value). Second, because the uniqueness of Inverness is its construction and lightness - it is not a typical wingtip and wears more like a whole cut than a brogue - austerity or not. And then third, because the Drummond is on a very elongated last and it only works for some. The sleek EG lasts are quite a bit less conspicuous IMO.

    What do you mean they wear more like a whole cut than a brogue?

    A wholecut has a lighter feel inasmuch as there aren't as many layers of leather about the toe especially in the area where the shoe creases. I have found that shoes with a layered toe cap break/crease differently than shoes without one. So the Inverness is constructed with one outer piece of leather to the toe, whereas a shoe like the Malvern has a leather cap. I can post pics of both if you'd like. However*: [​IMG] [​IMG] *It should be noted the Malvern is size 12.5E on the 202 and the Inverness is 13D on the 888
