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.

    day tripper from leffot.

    brown alpine grain from LS and yes, CXL wingtip on plaza, also from LS.

    yea I'm stumped about the missing 11.5 LWB from jcrew. credit card was charged, but a week later, nada.. they researched for a couple days but cannot find anything.. only had the 11d left, which I'll admit I've never tried fitting in barrie. my heads going to spin if they fit, as I'll have to swap out all my 11.5 for 11 [​IMG]

    Those George boots are awesome.
    So sad they were sold out of my size.

    1 for 3. At least I didn't strike-out.

    I did think that #2 looked a little grainy, but could not remember a grain WTB in that color, but now I can.
    That would indeed open up an entirely new can of worms. Maybe you could justify just replacing the LWB, as they ([​IMG]) that they fit larger than other barrie make-ups.

    I know the feeling. That's why I simply cold-clock anyone who gets within an arms length of me while I'm wearing shells (children and elderly included). Can't risk having a clumsy person mar my shoes by stepping on them.

    That is a solid collection that you have going there yourself, by any standard. Your Cigar LHS looks like an especially fine specimen.

    Don't know about anyone else, but all these collection shots today makes me want to take this disease to the next level!

    If any of these collections were the victim of some unfortunate mishap (god forbid), the claims adjuster from the insurance company might suspect fraud after hearing the value of a bunch of men's shoes :p
