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.

    Stellar Marv! Those LWBs are superb.
    Super cool Zippy! Not common to see the Leydon LWBs. I know Mike at EP has done them in Natty CXL. Haven't seen these before. Super cool!
    Ha! Yes, in general after a trek like that you will love or hate one another. Haha. :)
    Both are looking great BK! Have a very Indy day!

    @mdubs for me, it's usually after a 1-week humanitarian mission that I'll either love or hate someone! ;)

    Heh. If you change your mind in July, I'm pretty sure B+M is having another shipment.
    Thanks Mike!

    Thanks, DV. That's a great analogy.


    Actually, since it is the smooth chamois, I went and bought two kitchen scrub brushes.I brushed them dry with the firmer one to remove the heavy mud. Then I used a damp slightly softer scrub brush to even the color. then I let them dry. Done and Done.

    I love everything about this! The bag, shoes, pants, socks. Everything very well done, congrats! I'm in on the BM green LWB restock, and can't wait to get my pair.

    For reference purposes Alden X Leffot Whiskey Tankers vs. AoM. I like both of them and satisfied with the color of both.
    I'm wearing the Leffot version. Main differences between them is flat welt vs. Storm welt, and pull tab on the AoM.

    Burzan-the Leffot version I bought off B&S on this forum. AoM I got lucky. This is a nice enough make up
    that I don't mind a back up pair. I only say that on this forum, where shoe addiction prevails. My wife thinks I'm
    f...ing stupid crazy. If she really knew how bad it was? These do fall into unicorn territory, thus 2 pairs!

    The beauty of 2 that are almost identical is that you only have to admit to one.

    Help! In between Suede and Chromexcel Tassel makeup's .. then there's that damn Navy LHS Chromexel.. Being out here in the intense heat, a little reluctant on the Chromexcel.. the Navy is unlined but both Tassel's are lined. Looking for casual cool comfort. Never have had Chromexel before and do understand Suede is cool wearing. Also, if this Chromexel is thick, hot, and wrinkly.. I'll pass and jump on an unlined Shell.. Thanks thread regulars.. Chip
