    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.

    I love the snuff wingtip boots. Can't get enough of the photos! Hopefully I'll get my own pair next year at some point.

    I see. Those are the ones you have to wait a year for. That stinks. I have to be honest one of the reasons I stopped buying Panerai Special Edition watches was due to the wait game and the "you have to be lucky to get one" and get put on a waiting list that you might or might not get a call for. Very stressful. I was tired of the game, better ways to spend my money. I am not going to do that for a shoe no matter who the manufacturer is, there are too many other shoes out there you can get now and new models rolling out everyday. By the time a year goes by I may not want it anyways.....Now if its available now or in let's say 2 months...different matter. I do applaud those of you that have patience to wait!

    I like the way they to the W on the wingtip. It's less sharp and more tailored looking.

    Pardon the self serving PSA. These Alden style 662, Aberdeen last, 11 EEs are just not working for my 11 EEE feet and need a new home. PM me if interested.

    Patience is required to play the Alden game, especially for special non-standard makeups. Vass, Crockett Jones, and Carmina will all make excellent boots out of Horween cordovan, but they won't have the same Alden aesthetic. And If that's what you really want, then the wait is worth it.

    But I hear you!

    Decided to go a half size up on the j crew shell cap toe boot and boy was it the better decision. I'm a 8 in my other barrie shoes and these 8.5 fit just like it.

    Cody these are really great. What's the color in real life like? Looks to be a brown/black with some green undertones?

    Thanks

    My go-to casual rain shoe is the Cape Cod Mocc Oxford and this weekend has been uncharacteristically wet here in the south bay area.

    Seen here in rapturous action being dragged around while the wife dress shops for an upcoming wedding.

    It is a pretty interesting color. Charcoal with a hint of green. I really like it.

    To me, the Cigar Indy is probably the only one worth the 2+ year wait assuming you can get it. I'd do the same for Ravello but I dont think that exists other then the Plaza lasted ones from a few years ago.
