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.

    Love that watch. Have one on my wrist right now. Only mine is my dad's purchased in 1971. He got tired of having to wind it every day. Oh well.

    Well put. The J Crew PCT boot fit noticeably more narrow/snug for me as well, but not in an uncomfortable way. I actually prefer the fit compared to my other barrie lasted boots. A half size down was perfect for me.

    If it's narrow and snug, wouldn't I want a half size up? All the talk of half size down made me assume they ran a little big.

    Normally I'd say size a half down from the AE 5 last, but since you are wide-ish, I'd go with the same as the 5 last with medium width.

    #8 wingtip boots from AoC along with some tweed trousers from Hertling for a local shop:

    And since we're playing the watch game...

    I had been wearing my U1 all week but it just seemed a bit too beefy for today's clothing choice.

    The 9073 is a nice shoe. It is more formal if the edge is dark brown or black. While I would put it behind captoe bals in color 8 and black shell (or their calf equivalents) on the necessity scale, I would maintain it (or its dark brown calf equivalent) certainly has a place in a well rounded wardrobe. It works with various suit colors - navy, gray, olive, brown, tan. My dark brown captoe bal is calf - from the C&J Handgrade line.
