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.

    Alcibiades: unipair's post shows why if you had to choose one or the other, color 8 with dark edge probably beats out color 8 with antique edge...

    While I personally agree with this, I would take it one step further - those pics demonstrate why color 8 is, indeed, The King. :D

    I am so tempted, Alcibiades ...
    I have the color 4/black shell from J Gilbert, the color 8/suede from J Crew and a really nice vintage pair of saddles ... yet I am still tempted. :decisions:

    I say keep them. As you wear them more often, your feet will ever so slightly sink into the cork bed. Shell cordovan does not stretch, but that sinking of the cork bed will make it feel as though it has stretched a little. That's been my experience with shells that felt a little snug out of the box. As it turns out, it's been those shoes that have felt a little snug early on, that have been the most comfortable over the long run. My calf LWBs felt awesome out of the box. Now they feel a little too big, but still pretty good.

    Has anyone here had a similar experience?

    http://www.theshoemart.com/alden-me...ald-mxsdlp-95080_ald_m_plain_toe_blucher.html[/QUOTE]

    The poster asked for a brown calf ptb with double leather sole and then said cxl would work.

    First, I am pretty sure that the link supplied is to shoes with waterlock sole, not leather sole. Second, I suspect that the waterlock sole on those shoes is single, not double, waterlock. I see no description describing the sole as double waterlock (or double leather) and I have the navy cxl version, which is among the choices available through the link you supply, and that is single waterlock sole. Please correct me if I am wrong.

    Started the day as usual: walking the hound. The color 8 Indys got the nod, along with my Made in Portland Smith & Bybee waxed canvas jacket:

    GOD forbid the dreaded shoe freeze... ugh!! [​IMG] Pre-orders don't actually exist until they arrive. And if you haven't paid full price, you haven't actually spent the money yet. Thus, you do have the funds to buy the new saddles my friend. (I sense weakness in this one... Has my jedi mind trick worked yet?) [​IMG]
