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.

    They're all boots as I rarely wear shoes and when I first got into boots, I went crazy and bought like 20 pairs in the first year. As I gravitated from fashion/Italian boots to AE and Alden, I've sold some of my earlier purchases and now focus mostly on Alden and some AE. But I did just buy a pair of the Oak Street Bookmaker PT trench boots. They are an awesome rugged boot. I don't wear black much but Context has an exclusive on the OSB PT trench boot in black with natural edging that is very tempting. But all in all, Alden is still my favorite for boots, especially in shell. Going to London in a few months and want to see what I can find on Jermyn St. Talk on this thread about English boots has me interested.

    Epaulet never made a snuff PTB, only an LWB, but other than that I think most of the details are the same. Could be wrong tho, I haven't seen either in person

    +1. Took the words out of my mouth. Didn't see a single example of the typical QC issues that seem to be so common today.

    Don't stop posting them on account of me. I just think the Modified sounds more exotic after seeing so many pics of the J Crews.

    Thanks guys, much appreciated.

    BootSpell, after seeing your photo it looks like he's decided on the natural chromexcel boot but wasn't able to get his size. I guess waiting will give him the full Alden experience.

    Thanks Sazon! You have the #4 market covered, I'm envious of your #4 CPTs. :)

    It is - even stamped Context inside!

    Though the Tanker is f'ing expensive... is the preorder paid in full?
