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,

    Hey all,

    Is the loose grain creasing on these Brown CXL Tanker boots bad enough that you would not consider purchasing these second hand? I have Brown CXL Indy boots they have CXL creasing but the creases aren't any where as loose as this left boot so it gives me hesitation. I also kind of feel like Tanker boots are meant to be shell.

    Quote:I think those look very nice - I'd buy 'em if they were in my size as I'm getting a new pair from AoM unless I can find a nice pre-owned pair like that and save the $$$.

    That looks about normal to me for CXL. I am mainly a Shell guy, but those have an Indy vibe to them that works...
    Your Cigars are looking great! Enjoy today. -Mike

    I think that is pretty standard for CXL, I have a pair from LeatherSoul and really like them.
