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.

    Agreed. Definitely brown. Mine look just like Aldenluver's. Take a close look at the heels in his photo. Even though brown, you can see different shades.

    For me, Plaza vis-a-vis length and volume.

    It's different albeit subtle enough not to be easily noticed. I wear my LWB with slacks/blazer so the darker edge works better for me. The lighter is more effective with a denim look.

    Thanks, nope. Mac method and a decent brushing before and after each wear. Keep them in the box under my bed with the rest of my girlfriends, er I mean, Aldens. If I feel they need a pick me up, I give em some venetian cream, and I may decide to pick up some Reno to help thta as well.



    Yup, those are Leffot, and comments above are correct with the slight differences.

    To be honest I like the darker welt and edge trim on the DC Ravello LWBs :slayer:

    I'm with this guy. Love the contrast. It is like a frame on a great painting.

    You guys are torturing me with all this ravello.

    Also +1 on the lighter edge trim for me. My Cigars sport the same one and I'm SOLD. :nodding:

    I live in the NW and cannot escape the rain. If I let the weather rule me I'd never be able to wear shell. Bring it on rain gods!

    I think the lighter edge trim works better with the cigar because of the contrast. With ravello, I think it falls more under personal preference. My personal preference is to have both. :happy:
