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,

    Sigh - the Shoe Mart. Ordered a pair of Aldens from their factory seconds list this morning. Was told they were in stock.

    Just received an 'order canceled' email. No other explanation.

    Phoned, was told the seconds list was an error...

    In the city known for it's hills on the West Coast, and RiceARoni, a rumor has it it a rare breed of PTB in a color called Ravello has arrived. Seek the treasure or hold thy foul comments!

    See Ya,

    Just received these from Need Supply:

    The slimmer welt makes a big difference. They are not as clunky as 'normal' Indy boots.
    How about I go ahead and wear them in good health?

    I like those, media. Been on the fence about them. Are they as smooth and shiny as Need Supply's site show them? Oh yea...wear them in GREAT health!

    Thanks. They are very smooth and shiny although them not being shell, I don't expect them to remain that way once they wear in.

    Excellent DonL! I think I prefer the cigar LHS over any other, contrary to what most say about whiskey or ravello here. Wear often in great health!

    Fine lookin' boots Wildstar, and an even better story! Enjoy those boots and your daughter. They grow up faster than you will realize...

    Black Shell LWBs today gents. I've said before, these classic gunboats are a bit underrated.

    very nice. I wish alden would do this more; with the welt stitched closer to the shoe and excess outsole trimmed away. this indy almost looks like it was made by an english shoemaker in a british tan
