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,

    The code "Janelle" will take 10% off at Sherman Brothers bringing the black cordovan ones down to $514.

    There's also the black pebble grain Black Fleece ones for $550.
    You can go to bordersrewardsperks.com and sign up for the Brooks Bros corporate discount card which will take 15% off.


    will look into these in the morning. thanks.

    they do. my wallet is the one complaining! note to anyone in the vicinity of Norwalk, CT: do not walk into the Shoe Mart if you are trying not to spend money

    for Tom from LeatherSoul: when I walked in, the 2 sales guys immediately noticed the boots I had on and loved them. Your Kudu Ultimate Indys


    Ruh roh. I'll be in Norwalk next week, and I'm about to order the snuff suede wingtip boots from Tom. This wouldn't be a problem, if I still had a job!

    yeah what is the deal with that? its so annoying


    i talk to the owner of shoemart a lot which is good to get the jump on shoes but bad for my wallet.

    the site was hacked, joe told me they are doing everything they can to get it back up and running.

    Not a plaza fan homie, too chiseled and squarish.

    I'm all about the barrie. Classic. American. Tank.

    Will be rocking with junya type fits.

    Barrie is way too bulky for me, I love the plaza. Why don't you find a place that does special orders dude, and use the hampton last? It is a nice last.

    Barrie is awesome for a boot though, its tank - boots are meant to be worn buff and tough, while the more refined lasts are great for shoes.
