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,

    This has been my experience as well. I've heard it's because the cordovan 'warms up' and conforms to your foot as it's worn. On heavy walking days, I've found my shoes to fit a bit more snug again by then end of the day. But that's only when I'm doing a lot of walking.

    I know! It was totally random that I even called and then for them to have one pair and it be my size, CRAZY! I will feel better once they ship though...

    Completely agree on this week and more-so for me in particular.
    1. I am currently the high bidder on these, but still a lot of time left
    2. N/A (but grail makeup for my tastes)
    3. Huge score for me
    4. Will be in NYC tomorrow and plan to try these on and likely own

    I actually got the Leffot Tankers back in February, but it was nevertheless a similar experience to rydenfan's.

    Yeah, I'm on the Alden NY ravello PTB order, and was thinking a #8 saddle might fill my desire for a #8 PTB while adding a little variety. We'll see.

    I need a belt that's your basic shell/#8 color for dressy wear, doesn't have to be shell. Any suggestions?

    You bring up a very good point. :confused:

    However, I'm not in 'formal' situations very often; a few times a year.

    I guess i'd have to rock the suit and loaf' look !

    Yeah, this is why I chose a blucher. LHS and suit might be passable. Tassel or full strap is probably easier to pull off with a suit.

    There are many suitable and complimentary belts available. From AE and Cole-Haan, which are affordable, to Rodeo Drive type men's furnishings which are cost prohibitive. A matching calf skin belt will work just fine. But, if you love your shells as much as I do I think it's worth your time to look at Nick Horweens shell cordovan belts. They're spendy but the construction is too notch.
