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 took a look at the Skoak site to see the Alderley--man, not only are they smart enough for dress pants, you'd also be looking like a boss.

    No problem. We are all a team here.

    Yes the Alderley is a great boot. I posted a few pictures too, if you want to see more than just the skoak site's pictures.

    Talk about a really cool looking boot. I have never seen anything else like the Herrick, except for a bespoke pair that probably was based of of that style from EG.

    I'd love to order a MTO austerity brogue shoe/boot but I have no idea where to start WRT to sizing/lasts, etc. This is also a very nice shoe:
    Can someone provide me with details on this shoe?

    Lol, right you wanted a suede dover didn't you? Well these are half the price and I hear enzo suede is very similar to EG suede so you should go for it :D. Or just get another dover, I'm debating that myself!
