    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.

    These seem to have a lot of creasing for being brand new, no?

    I was expecting that. The creases are actually quite subtle. I was in a hurry and didn't look very closely before uploading. My feet are curled in the photo thus creasing the shoe. The lighting exaggerated the light and dark areas which didn't help either.

    Side note, much less squeaking after a few wears.

    Quick phone pic.

    Shameless Plug...

    Just received a pair of Ralph Lauren Marlow shortwings from Namor - I've casually checked out these amazing shoes (made in England by C&J) at the Ralph Lauren store in SF (which I did unassisted because the sales people were obviously too busy to help me - but I digress...). Never quite appreciated the quality until now. And the price and service you'll get from Roman, well let's just say that both are much, much better than you'll get at RL SF.

    ubiquiti, thanks for sharing. I see that you're getting rid of them. Is it because the Barrie last doesn't work for you?

    I did size down a half-size but be forewarned, the fit isn't identical to the Barrie.

    So I have a tip for everyone with flat waxed laces (excuse me if you have seen this before). I have been cleaning/polishing my shell over the last week and was wondering how I could get the laces somewhat flat again after wearing. Solution: I pinched the laces between two quarters and pulled the lace thru. Straightened them right out.

    Now I have a question for all of you.
    Could someone explain the why and how to use a deer bone on shell?

    NRO finally wised up... their current 25% offer isn't good on Alden (or Omersa or Church's.)

    Now if only they'd send me the Indy boots I ordered a month ago...

    I had the same experience at RL on Michigan Avenue. I dunno...you'd think they'd at least act interested when someone comes in asking about a pair of shoes that's like $950 OTD.
