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,

    It takes three days from TheShoeMart to my home in Maryland, and two days from the Alden store in NYC.

    I think the vamp discomfort is normal (at least in my experience) and should go away with a few wears. For me the BB unlined was TTS. The Alden lined LHS i had to go down half size and 1 width. Heel slippage was the issue.

    I was instituting "The Method" this evening and as my arm fatigued from brushing, I accidentally scratched the shoe with the corner of the wood handle of my horsehair brush. I was able to brush away much of the scratch, but the indentation in the leather remains, (although it has improved). Does anyone have any experience with scratches like this healing? I wouldn't say its deep, but what I am asking is will the indentation go away in time?

    (Its hard to capture on camera)

    actually, it is visible in your sales thread. they need to be pushed down a little. you're selling them anyway.

    Guys, my apologies for another dumb sizing question.. if 10D (TTS) is ok in width, but just a bit long (looks like I'm more 9.5), will 9.5D Barrie be just the same? I mean, 10 TTS length == 9.5 Barrie length?

    understood this is a fan thread, so there's a lot of exaggeration going on. this can be quite amusing, not?
