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 don't think I need two pairs of ravello longwings. You never know though, the eyelets and the sole do present a different look

    Boot laces are Outdoor laces from Kiwi in brown/yellow, from Nordstrom Rack (7eyelet, I think)

    Thank you, Uncle!! Nothing much yet compared to your collection, but I'm trying!

    These look awesome! I love the brass eyelets.
    I really hope they sold out in my size... or else I'm in trouble.

    Mac Method and the occasional Renovateur application. And lots more brushing.

    Might have given them an initial coat of Meltonian neutral shoe cream when first purchased, but can't remember. Really just Mac + Reno.

    These look great. I noticed that you often wear bals with chinos and cords, and I like these combos. Are you always wearing a jacket when you do this? I guess I'm pondering how casually one can wear a bal (excluding suede, as I think suede bals can be dressed down a bit more).

    Leffot just posted up an outstanding pair of CXL Pitt boots with brass eyelets and commando sole. I'm not a boot guy, but these are fantastic. Nice range of sizes too.

    I called Nick at the Ludlow store today, and someone snatched my size up. Oh well, wasn't meant to be. Hopefully I can get a Ravello Chukka from Shoemart sooner or later.
