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,

    Why don't you watch your profanities--your profanation of my Lord and Savior is a complete insult. I'm dead serious here.

    Wow Tom those look fantastic. How is the workmanship? I know nothing will be quite as 'tight' as the origional Alden built, but are you happy with the result?

    are those inlined? The creasing is so defined...

    I have the same pair on order. I take a 9.5D in the Barrie but have gone TTS (10D) in my Grant Cigar CapToe boots. These fit me well, as the Grant last is a bit slimmer than the Barrie. That said, I read that others go with the same size as their Barrie's. I would recommend going TTS.

    ^are you serious? There is a good inch gap, there is no way they would stretch to the point where the two sides would touch.
