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,

    DonL, well done! I thought you forgot about Whiskey Wednesdays yesterday when you posted your LWBs yesterday, but apparently you had some Whiskey LHSes sitting in your back pocket. :) BTW, what belt are you wearing? It appears to be a good match to your Whiskey.

    Nice. I have the boot on the left and can replace the boot on the right with a black tanker. I like this combo because I have a relatively sleek double leather sole black boot along with a more rugged commando soled black boot.

    Yep. Exactly.


    I agree with this route. Although I went with the #8 grant captoe and the #8 tanker. LOL

    These look great! I love the commando sole to complete the style. Will be a great "work horse" boot

    that is exactly the plan, Ryden. I have decided to use these as my daily go tos instead of buying an additional CXL pair. Saved myself some money for another shell something...

    Tifosi, I love your logic and need to adopt it... I'm saving $ by purchasing Shell cordovan boots by consequently not having to buy Chrmxl boots. Thus I can buy another shell offering. You da man my friend! [​IMG]

    Thanks, gents! @sazon, they have a few nicks and scratches and look a little more creased in person, but it is true that they haven't broken in as much as my #4 wingtips. Guess I'll just have to wear them more!

    [​IMG] Immediately reminded me of this Amazon review. Tifosi, congrats with the purchase!

    I have a seemingly noobish question. If we take a last that is rather universally acclaimed as a 'TTS - 0.5' (TruB, Modified - not saying Barrie since there are rare cases of guys going TTS in it) - why wouldn't the maker shift the whole scale up half a size and make things easier for everyone? Does a last have any formal parameters implying that a particular size of this last should be marked as such-and-such a size (e.g. a 9.5)? Sorry if I'm being too naive here [​IMG]
