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,

    Congratulations. Classic last?


    Do you have a pair of Saint Crispins already? If not, how did you figure out your size?

    Thanks! Yes, Classic last. This is my first StC. I got my size recommendation from Gabriel. Fit is spot on!

    They look better once on, in my opinion. I find I'm less reluctant to wear rubber soled shoes.

    Leather soles sound like they're being ripped apart constantly.

    What was your reasoning for rubber? Or have they been topied?

    We'll see. I feel like I have at least half my Aldens bc of you. Then you bailed. It's like you talked me into a timeshare next to yours and then immediately sold out and moved to the newer luxe place across the street. (It's ok though cause mdubs is still my property manager and owner of 90% of the units.).

    Thanks, Russ! I went with 7.5 UK and G (wider) width. Fit is firm with some wiggle room for thicker socks come fall.

    Thanks. I do spend most of my waking hours working on shoe analogies. The rest of my time shoe metaphors.


    Just jealous I didn't do it first...

    Thanks, Alex. I appreciate it. Good to know 7.5 will/should work for me in StC. Thanks for the width comments.
