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,

    RTP those PTBs are outstanding. Can't blame you if you keep staring at your feet through the day. Wear in good health.

    Thanks RK. They look like burnt ravello. Looking down constantly to see if they are smoldering!

    If you type "Alden 99071" the first search leads you to the website of www.schuh-exclusiv-kettler-shop.de/
    This alden plain toe with a close heel welt is the best type of plain toe I've seen. I sheds the bulk of the 9901 and doesn't have the metal eyelets like its BB counterpart. I wish Alden sold this shoe as part of its regular like. I would be a buyer.

    linafelt: Opinions on this Tar Brown boot from Moulded Shoes? My fifteen year old daughter gasped in horror at it ("Looks like corrective shoes"). Trying to decide if I agree...

    I say this only because you have asked. There is nothing about that boot that I like.

    There is a time and place for both black and antique edge on color 8. I've gone back and forth between the two. Some models (like longwings) may be worth owning in both versions because they can look so different.

    I guess I would say that antique edging tends to look best on the Barrie last. In fact I don't know if I have seen an antique / color 8 combo on anything but a Barrie last.

    I'd like to see a ppic of a pair of well worn Whiskey LHSs if possible, if not any other Whiskey. Thanks.

    Somewhat paradoxical... lighter shell colors will darken and darker shells will lighten.

    Seriously, where are their priorities? You could nearly get a pair of shell shoes for that kind of money.
