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.

    Is there a particular flannel cloth you guys recommend for buffing shell?

    Also, in the Mac Method is says to wipe with a damp cloth. does the cloth matter? can I use like a handtowel or something? I have always used a slightly different method and want to try this. Thanks!!

    I've decided I want my first pair of Alden's, and I want them to be natural CXL. I love all the CXL boots, but I'm looking for bluchers for this purchase. Besides the PTB and the LWB on ShoeMart, which other options do I have, if any?

    Supremely nice shine on those Indys, and the laces work much better than I would have thought.

    can't believe you can shine CXL up that much...but those are the best looking natural CXL boots I've seen yet, nicely done!

    Ravello has quickly become my second favorite shell after 8. CTYGGG...how about the pants...navy flannel Epaulet or something else?

    Thanks...JT

    Those whiskey gunboats are beautiful. Whiskey is becoming harder and harder to come by now a days.

    Use an old silk tie, or steal a pair of your lady's nylons. In my opinion, a damp cloth is a damp cloth whether it's a paper towel or old rag. This isn't rocket science.

    I'm envious of the shine as well and nice job with the laces. Are they round boot laces?

    #8 is the king. Just picked the trousers up from my quirky tailor a week or two ago & they are quickly becoming my favorite for winter wear. Here's the link & I highly recommend…
