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.

    I do own decent trees. Just wanted to know more about these things.

    However, if they do effectively fill the same role, why not?

    To me, it seems like the difference is that you lose the qualities of cedar that help soak up moisture and keep the shoes smelling nice. Also, you lose the nice thick back that keeps the butt end of the shoes in good shape. If you're only concerned with keeping the vamp and toe box nicely shaped, then I suppose you'd probably be good with those. Just my $0.02.

    These look great. I probably could not fit these into my rotation, but I still really dig them.

    I really like those navy suede LWBs, who made those up (who am I kidding - must be from Epaulet :tounge: )

    The second pic is frameworthy (assuming those are your wife's toes, otherwise it's walletworthy).

    I'm still waiting to hear back from Leffot if they're going to run those navy suede LWB again next season - I'm still dying to get those in my size.

    These are excellent. The broguing and the color are both very nice. Are they on the Hampton last?

    Need help finding out what is the best way to get the saphir renovateur suede spray here in the states, ive searched tirelessly to find the "neutral" color spray to care for my Aldens, clarks, and visvim shoes. Only black is available at most places, hoping someone in this thread can point me in a direction, or if there is some sort of method for getting it over here from abroad, maybe a slow waterway shipping option, sounds funny but new laws say these areosol cans cant come here and i assume its through the air due to pressurized planes.

    Any help would be great, thought i would ask here as this is a heavily trafficked thread and its for the purpose of maintaining my aldens and other suede shoes.

    Thanks in Advance
