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.

    When was the order placed for the Day Trippers? I'm surprised they got some new Ravello shells so quickly. I'm still not-so-patiently waiting on Epaulet's Ravello Brixton boot...

    To be honest, I initially thought it was some kind of sick prank.

    Beware of the seller frankthetank.0 on ebay. This person recently listed several pairs of aldens. I almost bit the bullet on these:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Alden-J-Cre...833&pid=100015&prg=1006&rk=1&sd=150942119580&

    But after some searching i found the images the seller used were identical to ones from a completed listing from another seller. I messaged " frankthetank.0" about this and the response was simply "I bought it from them for my own site." Coupled with the fact the user just registered a week or so ago and has no feedback, i'd wager this is a scam. I could be wrong, but buyer beware. Not worth the risk to me.

    Wasn't there two pre-orders, one that hasn't been produced yet? If so, I'd think slim.

    I saw the original listing from another seller who also had zero feedback and the listing disappeared and reappeared a few days later (with original bids wiped clean). I e-mailed seller and was told they had another ebay store with 100s of transactions in their feedback. I thought this was extremely suspect and decided not to pull the trigger. Instead I coughed up the retail from J Crew knowing I could return it without any problem.

    Hey, you never know. Couldn't hurt to call them and ask. Someone in your size could back out ect.
