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.

    Very tempting. And the price isn't outrageous (still a bit high). I don't think I got a chance to try the military last. But I see Lakota House has ordered up to size 11. That could be a good sign.

    Follow Up:

    The Larges ended up being great in terms of width and volume, but they were just a hair too long. If they were a half cm shorter they would have been perfect. Ultimately, they don't fit in my 9D Hampton/Aberdeens.

    Just thought I would mention in case anyone wants to use my experience as a proxy for determining their own size.

    That looks like a Moulded Shoe special make-up.

    I find this to be a spot on use of ravello shell.

    wow, if anyone is crazy enough to sell his pair of the Jcrew ravello longwings size 8, let me know, i'll buy them!

    Destroyed the crepe sole of mr Roy boots and looking to have them resoled. Either single leather midsole with chunky Goodyear commando halfsole (think Tricker's) or double leather soles with metal tip guard. any suggestions?

    Just received my first pair of Alden's. 9501 Bootmaker Edition from Shoe Mart in Natural CXL. The fit is perfect. I'm in complete love! Does anyone have some info on how to care for Natural CXL that won't affect the color much? Thanks [​IMG]

    Alden DC still has a few of the Ravel lo LWB with the double waterlock sole in stock. Unsure of the sizes that remain (with the exception that I know they have no 11.5 and 12 and only have D widths), but its worth a call if you are looking. As far as i can tell it looks very similar to the J. Crew minus the eyelets. The display had a dark sole but when they were brought out they had the lighter edge trim and flex soles. Nice surprise.

    Edit: Also meant to add that they still have the whiskey short wing bal and the very nice looking pebble LWB w commando soles on display.

    And, a question. Kathy mentioned they are awaiting stock of black and #8 shell PTB's unlined with a single flex sole, and a few other places had done a makeup like this previously. Anyone have a makeup like this? Curious to know how they feel/fit/crease etc. Sounds intriguing.
