    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.

    If you don't have a pair of boat shoes already, definitely. If you do, and you don't love em/they're not very nice, do it anyway. If you already have a good pair...you probably don't need them, though I do like the texture and accent. Always nice to have a little subtle detail that makes you stand out, even if only you notice.

    Almost bought them to replace my sperrys i've had for like 3 years. The sperrys are built like tanks though. I wear these things into the ground and not so much as a loose stitch.

    Yours are the leather ones right? I had a suede pair a few years back before I got my Quoddy's and I completely annihilated them, wore them through rain and shit and got them all stinky. Considering how hard I wore them I guess they held up decently but they were pretty shot. Suede definitely doesn't hold up as well as leather and I think they might've improved construction over the years.

    Mine are just standard navy leather sperrys. Wear them through rain all the time. I'd get a new pair but i like the way mine look now and if i bought new sperrys they'd look all fresh and lame

    ?

    I like the color but does it look too much like a women's wallet due to the size? Obviously you can't stuff it in your pants pocket so it would be in a briefcase.

    Talk some sense into me.
