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.

    have to assume there is a fair bit in DC as well. when I stopped in a couple weeks ago to pick up an order, there were 3-4 guys IIRC in there, with a couple (at a glance) sizing up shell.

    Whiskey, for my personal style of dress, is nearly 100% casual. For example, my whiskey longwings make it out of the closet pretty much only with denim.

    No whiskey today, but the ravello LWBs made it out. Is it me, or do these look a lot like Unipair's shade of color 4??

    No, these came from Alden DC about 1.5 years ago. Today's pics don't really show how red they are. I like them a lot, but if I had the opportunity to snag the J Crew version in addition to these, I would. These are the "4-ish version" in more direct sunlight...

    Thanks Sazon! I was initially disappointed with the color, but I have grown to like them quite a bit.

    Too kind my friend! Thanks...

    I do need to wear these more often. I said that to myself this morning when I pulled them out. Thank you my friend!

    I also purchased the ravello LWBs from DC around the same time. Mine are also very color #4-ish, maybe even a bit redder. Love mine . . . And yours too. I think we lucked out.

    PSA: BB online just restocked its supply of color 8 tassels (on the aberdeen last).

    It's a truly great shoe.

    Beautiful color RTP! I have the same shade of ravello which I bought from Alden DC. I think old ravello will be the new color 4. Wear in good health [​IMG] My ravello lwb
