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.

    A real beauty, on the seldom used Tremont. Nicely done.

    Thank you Uncle. My sock collection is a bit thin. I have started to work on it though.

    Much thanks MrDV. I suppose one can never have too much King, especially in this shell shortage.

    RTP - this is truly like picking between Halle Berry and Beyoncé. Can't go wrong either way. I think I would have went with the medallion cap toes, but there isn't a bad choice to be made. With these shows I'll go out on a limb and guess that the date went well. Thanks for posting some really amazing pic's.

    What's the difference (if there is one) between a Norwegian front blucher and a Norwegian stitch toe blucher?

    No difference. Same shoe. Just different jargon - some just can't use three words when four will do.

    I do not understand the concept of wearing dress shoes -- and medallion toe bluchers, the tassel loafer are pure dress shoes -- with blue jeans. Those are all beautiful shoes RTP has, and he obviously has taken tremendous care of them. But wearing those with jeans looks like someone stole one's casual shoes. Or like one is traveling and only took dress shoes on the trip.

    I suppose since we don't have to that great coward and sympathiser the Duke of Windsor to lay down the sartorial law any longer we can all do what we want. And perhaps this is an inconsistency that I don't think the boots are too dressy although from ankle down they look pretty close to the medallion captoes.

    In any event, the shoes are all impeccable and made me go grab my brush and work on my color 8s and black cordovan for the upcoming week -- while taking my son for dessert wearing white jeans and tan suede indys with red brick soles!

    my sizing experiment with the barrie seems to be paying off. to recap - i purchased the unlined cxl ptb from Alden SF in 8.5C as the #8 version in 8D is too roomy in the heel. if you have relatively narrow heels, consider staying tts and going down a width in the barrie.

    Conventional wisdom is that they are the same sizing as regular Alden - so usually on the Barrie Last, size down 1/2 a size from your TTS
