    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.

    Your Color 8 Tankers from Madison are looking terrific today.


    Your Color 8 NSTs are looking great. Leffot somehow manages to get the nicest looking tan antique edge dressing somehow. Looking forward to seeing them completed.


    Your Ravello WT Boots are looking great Henry. Hope that you had a good night out with the wifey... Get her a new car like @ReppTiePrepster ?


    Looking good in your Coney Island Boots. Enjoy them in good health.

    -Mike

    I only own Alden's in the suede department, so no additions necessary.

    Collection of black

    [​IMG]

    Somewhat in flux as my girlfriend suggests I sell the wingtips (largely because I already have brown cordovan wingtips) and replace them with something like black LHS for diversity sake

    The Black Shell Cordovan LHS is a fantastic model and wouldn't let you down. Surprised she is recommending replacing and not getting rid of... :)

    Because it's his girlfriend, not his wife ;)

    And those Ravello loafers are spectacular.

    Aren't brown and black diverse enough?

    I think the point is that I already have cordovan wingtip blushers but no casual cordovan loafers

    Fair point. But I wouldn't consider black shell loafers a casual option. Go suede or #8. I'd be going suede for casual.

    Those are terrific. Is that the stock tanker, or a special makeup from somewhere?

    I think this is a nice example of taking a style that can easily be "security guard chic" (the PTB) and making it look really cool

    thanks for the kind words dubs.
    Some things are best left unsaid. I'd like to think they were singing about something so beautiful, it can't be expressed in words, and makes your heart ache because of it.
    fine suede collection you got there Mayor. the saddles are sweet.
    great ravello loafers today.
    great shoes. the wingtips look so nice...
