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 order with fedex from skoak and haven't been hit with custom fees. But I could be just lucky so far.

    Does this mean no more deliveries from GG until Fall? I'm still holding some hope for my last pair of GG by this summer...

    No problem. To be clear, I was thinking about a cap toe Adelaide, which I think looks far better than the non-cap Adelaide.

    Great choice there. I usually would not think of going high end for a pair of Chelsea boots due to how infrequently I wear mine compared to other shoes/boot styles, but this is one where I would actually consider it.

    I used to do this. I mean even after getting a few high end shoes. I used to pay less for certain styles. Now if I get any shoe or boot I go higher end. I figure if it's worth getting I might as well get the best I'm willing to pay regardless of what it is. I might as well do it right or not do it at all.

    I have been feeling the same way unless I'm not sure if I will ever even wear a style just because I can't sell them if they aren't my thing. That's the problem with my size. Haha.

    But I have gotten to the point where the "lowest" end is Enzo bonafe anyway so if I want to try something different I go with them. And they certainty are not low end. Haha. They are great shoes and even better when Factoring in the price.
    But with EG and GG I inly get shoes that I know I will want to wear on a more normal basis, even if the coloring or materials are a bit "out there".

    I'm doing my best to be more selective, which is kind of hard when everybody keeps parading around all of these great shoes or boots.

    I'm buying a lot less on the spur of the moment than I used too, and even though the last two where this way it doesn't happen nearly as often as it used too. The Shanklins were but that was to good of a deal to pass up, and the St James in Kudu/ Cedar Calf but I had been considering a St James and a Kudu shoe for awhile now. By keeping the spur of the moment purchases down and giving more purchases more consideration prior to purchasing this tends to keep me more on track.

    I did that last year and mostly these were just upgrades. For me even though I had the style already the upgrade was extremely important to me. i enjoy very much those things that come with the type of footwear I am currently buying..

    Hopefully :)

    Yes, if you were on the waiting list and did not receive an e-mail about the restock, your size was not available this time.

    x-post from affiliate thread

    I need some advice on sizing in Rain. FYI, I have two Forest 8UK derbies/bluchers and an 8.5UK Simpson split-toe blucher. All in calf. I am very comfortable in both. I also have an 8UK Rain calf oxford which I wore 4-5 times last spring. I recall them being comfortable though snug. Indeed, I then assumed Rain was my best last.

    I don't wear oxford so much but wore them yesterday after perhaps 4 months, and they feel more snug than I remember and than I'm now used to with the Forest/Simpson that I wear more frequently. Part of it is the oxford versus derby lacing I think. The snugness is right at the side of the big toe below the lacing, whether the leather goes over the top of the foot. I'd love them to stretch a touch more.

    OK: on my GMTO, polo suede oxford Rain last. Given reports of Carmina suede stretching, I am inclined to stick with 8UK and expect more stretching in suede. Does that seem right?

    Anyway: advice appreciated.

    @Leaves @Skoaktiebolaget do weigh in if you have an opinion.
