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,

    2 new drops at Lost and Found
    #8 PT boot on crepe
    Snuff Suede Indy on crepe

    They priced the shell at $975 CAD (700 USD) That CAD is so sad..

    They turned out great, and honestly I would wager that they wear better than real commando.

    Looking great D! Looking great with your Caramel Ducks too! Hope that you had a good day!
    Looking good and ready for business Henry!
    Looking good today in your Tan Suede LWBs. A nice more casual look.
    Looking good in your Indy Boots. What you heard about JGilbert is correct. Yenni has taken on essentially their account and now has all their old inventory and designs in her pocket. An official E-mail went out yesterday from John Gilbert actually.
    A great boot for just that occasion! Looking good today!
    Ha! Actually the factory was very low on even Black and #8 about 8-12 months ago. Seems like things are more under control there now.
    A great and unique use for your old LHSes. A fun way to give them life!
    Very nice. Toppys are always a good way to extend the life of your soles. That's a great move for that boot for exactly your purpose. -Mike

    This will be daughter #2 for my wife and me. Our first was about five and a half years ago - right around the same time that I pre-ordered my Ravello "Brixton" boots from Epaulet... and I'm still waiting on them.

    my suggestion is to wear shoes you'll be comfortable sleeping in :)

    Solid advice!

    I wore a beat up pair of Clark's to my son's birth. You never know when you'll get hit by....Er......shrapnel (gross).

    But as both my kids were born in under 2 hours from labor to delivery (my wife is tough like that, south Asian genes and all), I didn't get to experience much of the "magic" of delivery room camping.

    Anyways, congrats and good luck!!!!

    My wife is South Asian too and she wasn't so lucky with our son! Can't even remember what shoes I wore but they definitely weren't Aldens!

    Well, finally did it. Bought my first pair of Alden Whiskey. Made a reasonable offer to the 379x Whiskey Wingtip boot on eBay (after fees, it's a small, not-unreasonable markup on his part, compared to what he paid, not a gouge like you sometimes see). They are officially on their way to me now! The flaw (which wasn't clear in the listing) is some dark streaking on the side of the boots. They are on the inside, will be covered by my pants and based on how I wear my light colored shoes, will be covered up in stains anyway.

    Pic he took of them: [​IMG]. Can't frickin' wait.

    We will look back on this as a transitional time. Great to witness history as it happens. Even if it does come at unplanned bodily harm. At least Mike didn't lose an ear though.
