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.

    I can't get enough from Tremont last. I have Leffot's Atoms and this last wears extremely well. Good looking Whiskey SW.

    Hi sevenfoldtieguy - rydenfan,

    well - i wondered myself a bit - the fit in the 1/2 smaller Suede PTB was snuggy but definitely better than in my ususal size.

    The unlined Shell No. 8 PTB i ordered yesterday at Alden DC i decided my usual Barrie size neverthless because Shell doesn't stretch that much.

    cheerio
    Joachim

    You also actually need a #8 LWB, a #8 PTB, a Suede Chukka, a boot with a commando sole, a Cigar Indy, and a Ravello LWB.
    Get going!

    Happy addiction.

    If you can comfortably stick a finger behind your foot, I believe they're at least 1/2 size too big. They Leydon obviously doesn't have as much toe room as the Trubalance, so you might be OK. I guess it boils down to how loose you like your shoes.

    I cannot tell you how much I disagree with this last comment, as it seems that you have that in the incorrect order. FEELING good is what makes you look good. It starts from within, not with the clothing.

    Knowing this is what will allow you to date girls and then also accompany women, effortlessly.

    Yeah, the J Gilbert boots are nice, and I know others like Leather Soul have done some shell models on the Plaza. I think LS even did a PTB on the Plaza at one point.

    Ahab if you want to part with your split toes, and they might fit an 11-11.5d, I'd be interested.

    Thank you sir. I laud your opinion and sentiment. My point being only that there still is a level of appropriate dress required in certain circumstances. A well fitted anything will enhance your deportment in most situations. Confidence, confidence, confidence! My dad always told me that manners and etiquette are the best cloths a gentleman can wear.

    +1 Recently I started getting my shirts made and it makes a difference in how I feel in that I'm comfortable, not fidgeting etc. It simply enhances how I already feel.

    Does anyone have an alternate phone number for The Shoe Mart or anything? They don't seem to be answering their main line at all today.
