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.

    Maybe you could put a slight coat of wax where the denim is hitting the suede?

    I was lucky enough to get these too - Leffot perforated captoe boots in black cordovan - and since Fall is beginning, am wearing them for the first time today. I too really like the boot - something about the way it is put together is very nice - I think the all eyelets adds to the quality and look as does the double leather sole. I did not get the color 8 version because I simply could not justify it when I have a color 8 captoe boot. I really wish, however, that I could find a way.

    The black is an outstanding make-up and yours look great.

    Alden of Carmel has limited sizes remaining in color 8 shortwings with commando soles on the leydon last. Leydon is not as round-toed as aberdeen, but it is far slimmer than Barrie.

    tarrago (sp?) is an incredibly effective product that you spray on suede to make it amazingly water repellent. I do not know if it will help with dye rubbing off on suede, but I would certainly ask of the manufacturer. I am sorry I do not have the experience to advise about how to remove such stains.

    Thanks for the info. I'm somewhat tempted by the color 8 slip on chukkas.

    Embrace the stains. They build character to the shoes. Think of them like you would your denim whiskers.

    Alden plain toe in tobacco color. I found it difficult to find pictures on these boots to get an idea of the color before purchasing. The color appears a bit lighter than the J crew picture and maybe a tad more orange, the light in the picture could be a bit better but this is a good representation. I could add a few pictures in natural light if requested.

    I wonder if New York City has the highest density of cordovan shoe in the world?? I worked around Chelsea area and easily spot 4-5 pairs when I walk to work in the morning. What do you guys think?
