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,

    Great looking shoes and, as always, impeccably maintained and presented. But, sadly, completely and totally inappropriate for chinos.

    Like wearing a morning coat with denim short pants.

    i agree that men of good will, etc. But wrong is wrong. (kidding).

    While I personally wouldn't wear my 9015s with anything less than a suit, I get the feeling that Uncle Mac's amount of life experience (read: age) and overall mien allow them to be worn appropriately with khakis.

    Awesome, thanks. Are all Baldwin sanforized? Where did you find that info? The Henley I own I bought off the Baldwin site, so looking at the description now it says "Indigo dyed 13oz Nihon Menpu Japanese selvage denim". Is that sanforized? I have so much to learn about denim still. Should I get any taper I want done performed at the same time? Is the "original hem" chainstitch service important or is the regular chain stitch hem okay? Thanks so much!

    Apologist.

    What is the world coming to?

    And how can the answer to this question be at all positive when style leaders who have strayed from The Path are encouraged with such, I am sure well-intentioned, enabling?

    And how can that answer be positive when I am shirking my duties with my apparently quixotic battle in support of the rules of style and good taste?

    Break long over. Back to work.

    You are supporting the rules of style and good taste in those tight hootchie pants? : ) Sorry, could not resist. I understand your point but there are exceptions to the rule and some people can pull off what most others cannot. As I see it, while the style of that shoe is *more* formal, it is brown, not black, and therefore not strictly formal. Just my thoughts.

    If you are ever looking for extra income, you might be able to find work writing the passages for reading comprehension questions on the GMAT, because I have no idea what is being said in the above quote.

    (They actually get the passages from scholarly publications, ect. but they are still equally as hard to follow.)

    OK. How many people (besides me) had to google "quixotic"? [​IMG]

    Aldenwear, it seems to me, is simply suggesting the following:

    If traditional rules of style and fashion mean anything, a heavily brogued blucher (2145) is less formal than a minimally brogued balmoral (9015), period.

    MAC: nephew, good people can agree to disagree

    Indeed they can. I consider both of us good people. And on this issue we shall disagree.

    I'm just going to leave this here....

    http://www.ebay.com/sch/Mens-Shoes-...3306754&_sop=10&LH_Complete=1&_ssn=muchocoins

    First quality Aldens at stupid prices. I totally lucked into the Ravello longwings in my size for 270 shipped!!!!!!!

    Good luck, as you'd imagine given the prices, they dont last long. (I think the Ravello Chukkas lasted max 1min)

    If you're a reseller go fuck yourself, let people get some steals for shoes they want.

    Anyways here is a link to his current listings.

    http://www.ebay.com/sch/m.html?item=310733306754&_ssn=muchocoins&_sop=10

    You might just want to keep refreshing :lol

    Again good luck guys!

    Yes they are. He/she didnt put it in the title/description but if you look at the pics you can tell and there is also the shell cordovan stamp on the sole.
