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.

    You should MTO that pair while prices are low. Should be beautiful boots and unique - extra fee won't be missed.

    We all have different tastes but for me the beauty of Burnham is in simplicity. I feel that medallion would be distraction.

    A handsome pair of inca. I was eyeing this for a while but ended up with wingtips.

    If you can share picture of that inca in the wild?

    It hasn't ventured off the carpet yet. Too salty, snowy, and dirty out where I live for a maiden voyage of such nice shoes. But in good time (hopefully soon), certainly.

    I'm also 9D on 5 last. I went 8 UK on Carmina Rain and Detroit last and that worked well for me. But email the guys at SkoAB when you're ready to order. They've always been really patient with me when I ask about sizing. I'd go wingtip personally but if you're looking for something a bit more conservative maybe perforated cap toe?

    What is the turnaround time on the EG MTO's? Just paid for my Nevis make up, wondering if I place a few more orders how long I have to slowly mention them to the wife.

    But it will probably be closer to 6 months.


    I think you might be right, as the rush to buy now will probably push some orders back a bit.

    Yeah and I'm hoping this rush won't have any impact on the orders I had in previous to this month. I'm pretty confident it won't on the order that was due this month, but I'm hoping it won't impact the order I put in January.

    As in don't buy too many brown shoes? This would be my second pair. I'm really only interested in brown and burgundy right now as a new lawyer. I don't want to be flashy. Eventually I'll venture into lighter colors, navy shell (really like that), and other variations.

    There is no such thing as too many brown shoes.

    Been lurking on this thread for way too long. Finally pulled the trigger on the G&G black Sinatras which have been calling my name for far too long...

    Cannot wait to get them!
