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,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    My standard Snapseed+ techniques have come under fire recently. So here's some no-filter to tide all y'all over. Hope this can help a few wondering how CXL behaves with time, Reno, brushing, and love.

    Alden x Epaulet Natural Chromexcel Longwing Blucher, at 6 months. Freshly MacMethod'd.





    Nice.
    I prefer the no filter variety. :D

    If some of the senior members on the forum could post pictures of their really old shells (15+ years) which have aged beautifully with time and care, that would be so wonderful. It would be like having a vision of the future for newbies. If some of the members could inspire with such picture posts (mentioning approx age of shoes) that would be so generous.

    Thank you for sharing uncle!
    Buying new shoes is like buying a new canvas, well aged shoes are a piece of art

    These look great. They are on the Leydon last, right? If you have a unlined suede chukka on Leydon, I was hoping you could comment on how the unlined suede sizing compares with the LWB. I've been eyeing the Epaulet site for these but can't pull the trigger because of unsure sizing. I wear a 8.5D in the chukka but I've read in the posts that the E in the chukka is equivalent to a regular D. So not sure if I'm a 8.5C in non-chukka make-up.

    Thank you for the info. I'll probably spend most of Sunday morning calling various BB locations now that I know there may be a chance. I'll start with the Madison Ave. flagship.
