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.

    Cheers,

    When I said 250 was steep, I meant in context of my current financial situation with no implications about Ervell's quality/value. From what I've seen they look quite nice, I'll know first hand shortly. My knitwear is practically non-existent, so I just went with blue to kick it off.

    I might have sized wrong though so it won't even matter in the end. How do these run?

    One can never have too many Tough-Guy jackets!

    Ha but seriously I really don't have many jackets at all, and I like 1 black one (my ToJ leather)

    Really? Out of the ones I have now or have had in the past the cotton ones actually feel more fragile. Also, while I didn't handle last winters pocket sweater the alpaca Norwegian sweater from that season was definitely more hearty/durable than the fair isle from F/W '10 (though maybe a hair less soft). The cotton is underrated though, and makes it to sales much more often than the alpaca stuff.

    Edit- I think the pocket sweaters are just more fragile than the rest b/c of the seed stitch construction

    what? [​IMG]
    I would prefer side-zips instead of stretchy-material, but you won't see it anyway and the price is a steal

    nice qualitywise?

    This looks like the same last, same suede, same stitching, same construction as my PS York boots. Only difference being that it's a chelsea rather than a zip. I'd bet it's the same factory.

    Pretty good every day boot if you ask me.

    agree, but you won't ever see them, so shouldn't be a problem [​IMG]

    Probably because he doesn't like them?

    No need to seek validation from everyone.

    oh that's not what I meant, was only wondering if I had missed something except that he may not have liked them (overthinking is in my nature [​IMG])

    Just wait for the right pair of side zips. Don't rush the purchase because you suddenly got an impulse for boots.

    I know I know, but side-zips are all so very expensive [​IMG]

    +1, don't jump on the first thing you see when you're looking for a particular style, you'll only end up flipping it in a few months when the real thing pops up, and waste money in the process
