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,

    Happy new year, all. Looking forward to seeing everyone's footcandy on the 2017 thread.

    Btw Brooks Brothers now sell a perforated color 8 shell belt that is made in the US using shell from horween. Looks very similar to an Alden makeup

    Happy New Year to my forum pals. This is a great thread with good information and ass deep in shoe temptation. I ended my efforts with Allen Edmonds when I found Alden fit so much better, among other benefits. In 2016 I picked up 6 pairs, three on pre-order and two "on the list." Catch you in the new 2017 thread.

    I don't post a ton but I wrapped up the year by purchasing a color 8 wingtip boot from adam at AOC today. Good final acquisition for the year!

    Hopefully I buy less next year.

    Does anyone have an opinion on the durability of the reverse chamois? I am looking for a legitimate workboot that can handle the occasional bit of grease, oil, and would stand up over the course of several years. What can I apply to it for cleaning and protection?

    I'd be primarily using these boots inside; not looking necessarily for a cold or wet weather boot. Just serious durability.

    How about this from UM: https://unionmadegoods.com/product/...ront-boot-in-reverse-tobacco-chamoise-40207h/

    And finally, can the reverse chamois compete at all with shell for longevity?
