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.

    I dig them, too, though I much prefer them after they darken a bit.

    An overcast day in NY -- perfect for the Kudu LWB.

    I've been following this thread for a while but now that I'll be getting a pair of Ravello plain toe boots I just have a few questions (pardon my ignorance I'm a SW&D guy):

    1. Does it matter what horsehair brush I get? Or anything works?
    2. What paste works best on Ravello?
    3. Mac break-in is three wears on carpet for an hour each on separate days right?
    4. Any other materials I need?

    I'll probably have a few more questions about creases and stuff in a few weeks but so excited!!!

    For those of you that use insoles....

    What brand/type do you recommend?

    I was checking out Superfeet but unsure on which pair to get.

    Hey teach, this is called "wheeling."

    Excellent lecture. My Cigar Indy's have a storm welt - it is when another piece is sewn onto the welt, correct?

    Dunno actually. A kid brought her in as part of a project we did in the fall. I tell my kids that she's my new girlfriend and she keeps pestering me to leave my wife (who literally works two doors down in the art room). They think I'm weird...lol


    Paison, beautiful! When they had these I had these in and out of my cart until I decided on the Ravello Brixton pre-order instead, should be arriving soon! BTW, the Gotham History Center in CUNY picked up one of my entries and is featuring it on their web site for the next month. http://gothamcenter.org/blotter/ STOKED!


    ET, As much as I love whiskey, I just don't wear it as much as the other colors. A boot will always be a difficult wear in July and August, but I think the amount of wear you get from the #8 boot in the 9 or 10 months you will wear them will outnumber the whiskey.


    Steve, as long as its a decent size, the HH brush shouldn't matter. The bigger the size the less "brushing" you'll have to do. As far as paste, I don't use any. I just condition as needed and brush the crap out of the shell before and after each wearing.

    I believe Leffot has a Day Tripper cap toe boot and TSM has a NST boot; both are in Ravello.

    these have served me well, I recommend the deluxe as they are a bit thicker and take up more room if that's what you need.

    (note if you google around you may find a better price elsewhere)
