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.

    Regular shoe trees. I'm not sure whether a different style comes with the tall boots, but hopefully one day I'll find out. [​IMG]

    In the sense of being able to get some real terrific shoes, Nope. LOL



    Good Luck.

    I went yesterday. Ended up getting model 564. I was surprised because I never liked that model in pictures, but seeing it in person it is very elegant. I was going to get two pairs, but I have decided to allocate some funds towards a new summer suit.

    I got it in the black CRU crust leather. Phillip actually thought it would look better in the non-crust black leather because it is very deep, blacker than black and doesn't lighten up and such, but in the end he said it is preference. Since I am a black shoe man, I really like the character the crust leather gives to a black shoe so I went with that.

    As to the difference between the CRU and FUN that I brought up having both he said they are both crust leathers, but from different suppliers. The FUN is softer than the CRU and is a bit more shiny naturally. In the end it comes down to aesthetics. FWIW, the aniline dyed, non-crust leather (I think there is a "V" in there somewhere) is the "hardest" of the three calfs.
