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.

    I like the first one better. I'm guessing it's probably significantly cheaper too?

    Yeah, $1600 vs $2600... also the Bergfabel is sold from a store I'd much rather support while the PH I can only find at larger outlets (which is beside the point, because I'm not paying $2600 for a coat, I'd continue hunting for a used one)

    They look decent. pebble-grain is just embossed calf leather. just your normal polish/cream needed. They are made in Northampton by Sanders (or at least all of his recent shoes have been). Decent quality in my experience - not up to Edward Green but as good as your typical English shoemaker.

    Thanks! Ya, I know he just slaps his name on a sanders (which is why I'd never pay retail for mcnairys). At this point I'm just trying to decide if they work with my wardrobe I guess. For me they're kind of like an alternative to the thom browne black longwing, at a lower price, and less flashy.

    Nicely, you need to buy more Song for the Mute. Or someone does. Or everyone does

    Sorry to bring it up again, but I'm still on the fence and wondering what type of leather is likely being used here. I'm not sure if mcnairy uses a full grain or if these might have even been treated. Any ideas?

    The Sanders pebble-grain shoes I've handled have been embossed top-grain, but I've little experience with McNairy's offerings, and without looking closely at the actual shoes to see whether they've been coated I couldn't tell you. Personally I prefer pebble-grain on tan/brown shoes.

    I like those shoes. The pebble grain meshes well with the beefy shape. But without knowing a single thing about your style, I can't give you an opinion either way :confused:

    I really like these boots, but worried the color is too loud...thoughts? Would they look nice with dark blue and black jeans?
