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,

    The best thing about the aberdeen last is that you can easily try them yourself at Brooks Brothers. They should have several sizes and widths in stock to give you an idea if it will work for you because it is a narrow last. Finding multiple size and width combinations of barrie, hampton, grant, etc in stock are not easy to find, especially if you are not near NYC, DC, SF or Norwalk, CT.

    Gentlemen, Happy New Year! I am still looking for two or three more people interested in doing a Kudu Indy boot on the Modified last. Speed hooks, cork-neo sole, antique edge, and close heel. The estimated price is $565 plus shipping from Moulded Shoe.

    We are very close to securing this order. Please PM me if interested. Thanks to all the SF members who have signed on so far.

    Kudu is an exceptionally rugged and supple version of CXL. It's hard wearing and looks great with denim. The Modified last is very forgiving and provides excellent comfort and arch support. And again, we only need a few more people to secure this order. My thanks again to everyone who has supported this MTO effort.

    Speaking of Color 8, today Mr. FedEx dropped off my JGilbert plaintoe boots on the Plaza. This completes my trifecta of color 8 high boots from JGilbert. This frees up my like new color 8 chukkas (plaintoe of course, Barrie last, 9D, double leather sole) for a possible swap as we start 2013. If interested, PM me. Thanks.

    Sevenfold - I am jealous. Was hoping my box would arrive as well. Agree with you on the Color 8, I don't believe you can have too much color 8.



    Thanks, Uncle. My resolution for '13 is minimal shoe purchases. This resolution, however, will not preclude me from acquiring a boot on the Grant last.

    I have the bluchers in blue suede and they are great spring / summer shoes.
