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.

    Cheers,

    We'll all have to visit NYI on the Yellowhook Necktie Appreciation thread (that's the business of which he speaks, I believe). It's just down the Internet, right here on SF.

    He doesn't mention it specifically in his post, leaving it to the more appropriate spots such as his avatar and the link in his signature.

    So I'll mention it. :slayer:

    And I won't even post any photos of C&J shoes... :)

    speaking of the fransboone indy boot/whatever hybrid that has been discussed recently, here is another photo (as some, myself included, commented on the whiskey'ish shade)

    major props to frans for a ridiculously quick response to my email this morning. i'm deciding if I want to grab them, but am trying to force myself to wait until some potential fundage comes into play.. was hoping to grab some cigar or ravello LWB from them also but they are currently OOS in my size [​IMG]

    Gee, that makes tons of sense. I ordered two different cordovans on two different occasions. I received shipping info on both pairs only to receive a follow-up email a week later saying they didn't actually have what I ordered in stock.

    Thank god JCrew had a screaming deal on Cordovan's this past weekend.

    Seems they raised their prices since I ordered. [​IMG]

    Ok, who has some good horse meat recipes?

    We will do what it takes for more ravello supply.

    These Jumpers look great on you, sir! I think I'm jealous!

    That's a very nice example of the Kudu Indy. I like the Goodyear sole. The LS Ultimate Kudu Indy might be an option too (if they do another run). Their makeup is similar with a commando sole.

    5 year anniversary, still going strong.

    In full sunlight the colour is much closer to the first pic; second pic taken in dreary light.

    What are you guys all Allan Pinkerton? The story is true. The watches were taken to a retailer in NY named Tourneau. It wasn't Rolex headquarters. I get one fact wrong and the league of justice has a field day. I tried so hard to find the article, but I couldn't get through all of the fake Rolex websites. It's like trying to read about fake Viagra and how reali it is to Pfizer Viagra, you'll never get through the offers to find such an article. I did find this one though.

    Quick question about sizing. Most say that one should try shoes on after walking quite a bit, or at the end of the day after your feet have expanded some to obtain optimal sizing and fit. However, I think my foot is largest in the morning after taking hot shower; heat creates expansion. I remember putting on my first pair of Aldens (LWBs) in the morning after a hot shower and thinking, holy crap, I've got the wrong size. It was uncomfortably snug, even with thin socks. At the end of the workday (I am on my feet all day and walk quite a bit throughout the day), I felt as though I had a different shoe; there was plenty of room, almost too much room. Throughout the day though, any of my Alden LWBs are the most comfortable, best fitting shoes I own! [​IMG]

    This is my daily experience. Am I alone with this, or is this experience common? I am actually wary of trying on shoes at the end of the day or after walking a bunch. If I do, I take the above into consideration. From what I have read, I think I may be an outlier.
