1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Other than the leather trouble those are swell!

    I've had some experience with the cruddy leather on the more recent Cole Haans :embar:

    I conditioned mine heavily with good old mink oil (three times in three days) and have no creasing after nearly 20 wears. Maybe that cheap leather deserves to be treated cheaply!

    Can't wait for the day you do a comprehensive photo posting of your complete spade sole collection as a collective comparison, you've been posting some killer shoes on here.

    I agree. Especially the finish on the pair on the extreme right. Nice mottled antiquing.

    Thanks guys, just updated the bottom picture with the shoe details. The Lanston and Woodcote are mine and I'm selling the 10.5E Philip II's and 7E Oakley's :) thought it was my one and only chance to do a group Lobb photo.

    JL has truly beautiful finishes and colours, always inspiring. Consider Lobbotomized.

    My favorite shoe. I have the chestnut museum calf. I bought them for about 60% off a couple of years ago on B&S. :slayer:

    Edward Green Dover, Antique Dark Oak, 888 last.

    From Brooks Brothers, no less.

    I also ordered the EG Chelsea suede captoe. It is on the 82, and is fugly in real life, so it's going back. For once the BB website makes something look better than it does when you actually see it in person.
