    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.

    One more question. Any idea what kind of edge dressing I should use for these? Would AEs brown be too dark?

    Both of those boots above are fantastic. The Ravello pair blew me away. They look so flawless up there.

    I use AE brown on mine. Just make sure you wipe off the excess before it dries to avoid build up.

    Thomsquared, those are sick. Congrats!

    I picked up the #8 wingtip from BB. fingers crossed the paint on the eyelets dont chip as fast as the ones on my boots.

    Also, the navy suede spray came in today. Will change the color of my white chukkas from white suede to navy. fingers crossed

    I'm sorry but those are amazing! The bar lacing sets it off!
    This will force me to pull the trigger on the 4060 i've been on the fence about.

    I couldn't do that. It's very likely that these will end up in the trash, or on your shelf as a daily reminder to never do something like this again lol.
