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.

    No way to tell without ordering yourself. Half would do 10.5D, half would do 10D.

    I don't think it is normal. My guess would be that someone stuffed them in the box improperly.

    I wonder which retailer it was?

    i had a crease like this on my brand new Ravello LWB's from Alden SF. it was annoying, but i Reno'd them, then put some Saphir Neutral Cordovan Creme on them. brushed vigorously. it's still there but it's evened itself out with wear.

    There's been times where I have think if I should have sized down 1 full size instead of .5 in these Indy Oxfords. Even with tongue pads, they are still loose with normal socks.

    Haha, just a digital camera set on self timer placed on random object of proper height :embar::happy:

    Gents,
    I'm interested in a plain toe or cap toe cigar boot with a commando sole on the Barrie last. Can anyone suggest a make-up that might match or get me close to the aforementioned description?

    Thanks in advance for your replies.

    Yes, but my issue with it would be that such a crease would never form from my feet. If it's all the same after a few wears, then that is fine, but I'm not sure that is the case here.
    Alden DC has the cap toe you describe.

    Edit: Sorry, its not Barrie Last. Its Grant.

    Leather Soul did a Cigar PT on Barrie, don't think it was commando though.

    Best of luck in your quest.

    I have a question to give myself peace of mind: How similar does the 975 (LWB) fit to the Epaulet Brixton? They are both Barrie, but it appears that the toe on the Brixton boot is slightly more prominent.

    I ask because I have a pair of Brixtons in 7.5D that fit perfectly, and I just ordered a pair of LWBs in 7.5D, but I want to be sure of the fit.

    Thanks Sevenfoldtieguy and REguy for your thoughtful responses. I will try to see if any local retailers have them in stock, but I haven't seen them around in a long while.
