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.

    Thanks gentlemen

    I'm mindful of Sir Steve Redgrave, one of Britain's greatest olympians. Having set out to win three Olympic Gold Medals at the beginning of his career, Steve went on to win an incredible five Golds in five successive Olympic Games from 1984 to 2000. On winning his fourth gold in Atlanta 1996 he famously said “Anybody who sees me in a boat has my permission to shoot me,” He went on to win a fifth gold four years later!

    Anyone who sees me in Jermyn Street (replace with similar), or hovering on-line with card in hand has my permission to....

    Maiden voyage today

    I really need a pair of these in my life. Care be damned. I just need to get on getting a St. Crispin's personal last for myself....

    Congratulations @Cleav on a brilliant first pair!:slayer:

    I'm also in possession of a new pair of chukkas (507) in dark brown bison (BIS 078) and a resole-conversion on my single eyelet derby (506) from leather to "geyo" 10mm rubber. :bigstar:

    All credit goes to Saint Crispin's Americas and more specifically @GothamRed for the great service (and first photo below).

    Those chukkas are sweet, but that resole is fantastic. You're giving that pair of a second career. Nicely done, @Itsuo

    Any update on why leatherfoot/stc broke up? I liked viewing their STC gallery.

    How does the bison compare to other grainy leathers you've worn?

    How does sizing compare to Gaziano Girling? I'm a 8.5 UK in GG and wondering what size I might be for button boots in St. Crispin's. Ive never tried them on before and wont have an opportunity this year based on my travel schedule. Might blindly order.
