1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I'm wondering if anyone can throw out some suggestions for a dark brown captoe balmoral. In particular, I have a larger sized foot (12.5 US) so I don't want anything too elongated or pointy. So far I'm looking at the CJ Audley (337 last) at about $500 or the Herring/Cheaney Churchill at around $300. Any other suggestions for under $500?

    The Alfred Sargent Chatham might be another option, although I haven't been able to find my size yet. Any other suggestions.

    ^^^ It's a captoe bal, but it might have too much brogueing if the OP's eyeing the Audley

    The 337 last will make your already large feet seem bigger.

    I find the American makers of shoes seem to make your feet look smaller like Alden or Allen Edmonds.

    I'm wondering if anyone can throw out some suggestions for a dark brown captoe balmoral. In particular, I have a larger sized foot (12.5 US) so I don't want anything too elongated or pointy. So far I'm looking at the CJ Audley (337 last) at about $500 or the Herring/Cheaney Churchill at around $300. Any other suggestions for under $500?

    How about the C&J Westfield?

    Wider last, but shorter and not so pointy if you want something more traditional.

    I love my Audley's FWIW.

    I hadn't heard of Carmina before. After a little surfing I find they have a very very nice model. SFers seem to think them a good value at around $500 at the Armoury. I'd be curious of any other models
