1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    This has been my mindset.

    I've also gone as far as making sure that each shell color is also on a different upper/pattern

    Jeez, double digits in the same shell color??? I don't even want to think about it! If I ever get to that stage, my wife will have to work till she's 80 to support that expenditure! [​IMG]

    Quick question. Where do your toes seem to fall within a pair of Alden 975's? I just received a pair and at first thought they seem a little large, but I am worried that if I go a half size smaller they will taper down where my toes are too quickly and be tight around the sides of my toes. Right now my big toe ends just a bit before the decoration begins on top of the shoe.

    you don't know the size, but you ordered shells? You should probably have gone in for a professional fitting. Are you into that whole "Yale" thing btw? [​IMG]

    IMO, wearing the Barrie LWB, the tip of your longest toe should be approximately 1.0-1.25 inches from the end of the shoe. A thumb width is another good rough measure. By decoration, I assume you mean broguing [​IMG]

    Beautiful! I bet you're going to get a comment from Sevenfoldtieguy -- he loves the Alden BB shells in color 8, as do I. They are more of a purplish/eggplant/Grimace from McDonald's color

    Who cares, so long as you're not the one working? [​IMG]

    BTW, this is my 100th post -- do I get some sort of promotion or title for this?
