    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.

    Those Cheaney FS029 boots are beautiful indeed. If only I needed a new pair of boots...

    Yes, they are beautiful... Could one possibly wear high boots in Los Angeles? It's always so damn warm here and it rarely rains.

    As Racing Green said, his regular wingtips get the same attention.
    To the guys who own the Cheaney boots:
    When you get the compliments, your pants are covering the boot portion,
    so is it safe to say they are mainly complimenting the pebble grain wing tip aspect of the shoe,
    while the boot aspect may just be incidental?

    Wow, those multi-purpose Cheaney boots are a huge win for winter.
    I haven't worn boots in years, but this can be pulled off as "office wear",
    when the pant falls over the ankles.
    I can justify some serious cash outlay for something good.

    It's called a chest. If you ever want a man's body, PM me. I can teach you everything in 1 email, provided you're not low IQ, and have an attention span of about 2 hours to absorb the supplemental reading. Actually, scratch that.

    ^The Cheaneys are 150 quid IIRC, which isn't a bad price at all.

    Yes, they are beautiful... Could one possibly wear high boots in Los Angeles? It's always so damn warm here and it rarely rains.

    I wear my ankle boots in 90 degree weather all the time, though I'm pretty much used to the climate where I'm living.

    Before this turns into another "pick on reevolving" thread...

    Can it be a coincidence when the same people get the same amount of shit [continuously] in response to their posts?

    For instance:



    he has high tits


    It's called a chest.
    If you ever want a man's body, PM me.

    Patrick,
    I am here to learn about clothing. Period.
    Look at the threads I've started.
    Who is hijacking whom?

    Have you noticed I never start anything? No.
    But, it's the same 3 or 4 trolls that continually hijack threads and impede any constructive discussion and education.

    acecow (I give him credit for contributing to this one, however) Nice shoes.

    "Hey, what are some distinctive shoes you guys have?"
    "He has high tits"

    Are you for real, you fucking loser?
    It sad one has to engage with these autistic dimwits to actually learn something here.
    If I could block them, trust me, I would have long ago.
    You have nothing to offer anyone except interference.
    You are a net negative.
    Get the fuck out of our way.
    FOAD. Really.

    I'm here trying to figure out shoes I'm going to buy today..
    1) We dress up to get noticed.
    2) Shoes are the most noticeable aspect of your outfit.

    What better thread topic than "What is your most noticeable shoe?"
    Simple. Efficient. Leverage others' experiences.
    Task: Just post your best shoe.

    .... instead I'm typing out this nonsense.
    Another potentially informative thread totally derailed.

    Frankly, this entire forum has gone to shit in the year I've been here.
    Very few quality posters left.

    Those Cheaney boots get me thinking about getting the brogue version: either the Herring Grassmere or the Rusland. The Grassmere appears to have a slicker last though.

    Pen, I'd say it's the color. The walnut is just so much more noticeable than brown, black, and even maroon/oxblood. This will be my next color, ideally in a wingtip. Oh, and I have high tits, in case you were wondering.

    Is this the man's body with the tits in question? Delish.

    Just for the record the boots are indeed Cheaney FS029's and are available as a factory order. Just pop a call to the factory and get in on the next production run. They are as stated £150 a pair. Best 150 ive ever spent (on shoes that is) Stacey was the other [​IMG]

    "Hey, what are some distinctive shoes you guys have?"



    Not necessarily what you like, but what consistently gets noticed by others.

    There's the one noticeable pattern I see with your posts, you seem overwhelmingly concerned with how others perceive you. In the OP, you didn't state, "what are some distinctive shoes you guys have," you specifically state, "Not necessarily what you like, but what consistently gets noticed by others."

    Perhaps it's an age thing. When I was 16, I felt the same way. By the time I hit 30, it was much less important. Today at 40, I buy items that I like. I know full well that unless I bump into an SF or AAAC member, nobody will notice my shoes, watch or suit.

    They do notice my ties, however.

    Look, if you want to wear a tuxedo to bed, b/c it's for YOU, then good for you. I wear Ts/sweats at home, and dress up when there are other people present. Sense another pattern, Sigmund? I asked a simple question. I am interested in replies to my question, not your armchair psychology. Also, if you must know, I deliberately phrased my question in that way, and not the way you suggested. Think and you'll get it.

    The only problem was the steep shipping price [​IMG].

    On the flip side, I received my boots pretty much overnight!
