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,

    I know they used to make #8 shell LWB. Last time I was at J. Crew in SoHo a month ago they had them in stock.

    Does Neats Foot oil darken natural CXL?



    Dead serious - I am not a loafer guy, but this has just triggered a search for a #8 LHS.

    Excellent. Thanks. I really hope these do appear at Leffot again soon.


    These look great. Beautiful shine.

    J Crew men's shop on 484 bway, as well as the Liquor Store both sold the #8LWB at one time. Not made specifically for J Crew, but....
    Gorgeous. I am hoping to get in on a pre-order for these at some point...

    Got lucky with these... was not on the pre-order, called, and behold they had one in my size! Needless to say it was a quick transaction. I'm on a pre-order for a similar boot but in Whiskey... now THAT is something to look forward to!

    Lighting and how my dye Alden used on them :) Recently their shoes are dyed darker; My hypothesis is that it is done to minimize degrees of shading.

    Yes. Color 8 looks much more burgundy in natural light. It's beautiful.

    How old are yours? The creasing looks minimal.

    Really depends. I'm a 10.5 in Barrie and just purchased some unlined Chukkas on the Leydon in 11D. Leydon is significantly narrower than Barrie. My foot is basically right in the middle of D and E width and fits in the Leydon D but just barely and that's on an unlined chukka so there's definitely some give there.

    So I would say at it depends on a couple of things; namely how wide your foot is and what boot/shoe you are purchasing.

    I think if I had pressed the issue they would have replaced them but I'd almost rather not lose the mileage that I've put on them. Though we'll see how they hold up once I get them back and we'll see if they fix my eyelet problem or just gloss over it. I'll probably call them again on Monday just to make sure that they actually take note of the issue.
