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.

    Did everyone get this when it was out the first time around? Can we find five (5) more interested parties?

    Anyone?

    Bueller?

    I think it's a very classy looking boot Levi, but I have a black dress boot.

    I'm just not sure about the grey suede. I love the look of the black on black; the grey seems like a bit much.

    I believe the one I'd pictured was a stock model, rather than a MTO.

    Not confused. Sorry.

    It's true, though, that black is just not as popular.

    I'm thinking about something like this as well as I am in the same boat as LeviMay. Or...

    [​IMG]

    Or... I'm intrigued by the Bonafe bal boot but it seems the grey makes it more daring for lack of a better word. Might it possibly be too nice/elegant to serve as a boot you can wear to the office or around town. I can definitely see rocking them as a wedding shoe or a night at the Met but I don't get married or go to Met openings all that often. The above seem a little safer. I guess the question I'm debating is can I pull of the Bonafe 2 tone's without looking too much like a dandy? Is it a special occasion shoe (wedding/opera) or can I rock it with a suit and wear it around town and not feel overdressed or out of place? They are definitely more interesting and would be more fun to wear.

    Agreed that a black on black MTO is an uphill climb but I have brown and burgundy bal boots so there is a place in the rotation for black.

    My thoughts exactly. The black could, I feel, be worn with pinstripes as easily as to the opera, whereas the two-tone would be that much more memorable, and, thus, be brought out less often.
