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.

    Beautiful. Amazing how the welt and edge can totally change the look of that shoe

    I know these don't get a lot of love on here but, I've been wearing them quite a bit lately.

    For me they work very well on the biz casual side, probably wouldn't like them with a suit and I'm not too into black with jeans(personal preference) so I can see the argument for lack of versatility. But black shell has a nice glow.

    Crowdsourcing this. I chew through the heels on my Indys like crazy (3-4 months avg). I can't find any cobblers in my (new) area that carry the asymmetrical heel. Can I source these anywhere myself? Anybody have similar experiences?

    Anyone here also have Cleverleys? I'm trying to figure out what size I wear in relation to my Aldens.

    I'd really like to echo Steve's gratitude for the information, enthusiasm and camaraderie that flows so freely on this thread. I didn't even know the difference between an Alden and an Aldo as of 2012. Like Steve, I've collected a fair number of shells and some other great pairs over the last 10 months. I know I couldn't have done it in as educated a fashion without the support, candor and shoe porn that so many of you have offered. Here's hoping for more fun times as we head toward a 2014 that, hopefully, will be full of ravello and cigar Brixtons and other grails we've been seeking.

    Also, I sometimes feel bad that I don't post pics more frequently. I'm not always by the computer during the day and don't have the time to take dslr pics while rushing around. In any event, my humble contribution for today is a quick iphone snapshot of a recent acquisition: tobacco chamois/oiled nubuck Greenwich boots from Leffot paired with Pure Blue Japan xx-013 selvedge. Went with an 8E instead of my usual 8.5D Barrie; was worried at first when they started out snug, but as of today (4th or 5th wearing), the cork seems to be relaxing a bit, making for a much more proper, if not comfy fit. Great for a yucky weather day like today.

    I finally ran through my heels on my indys two weeks ago. local cobbler didn't stock a direct replacement, but had a set of cats paws. ended up going with those and am happy so far

    Best eBay post ever... Check out item number 151164934990.

    It's a pair of tassel loafers. It has 6 pictures, 5 of the soles and a shot inside the shoe showing the size.

    I guess people don't care what the top of the shoes look like anymore... :)

    I'm on a cigar hunt! Does anyone know of any shops with captoe boots or shoes? I'm a 8D in barrie if anyone knows of any sources. I just sold some other shell boots that weren't getting wear so I'm looking for a good replacement.

    I know J. Gilbert is placing a cigar Indie pre-order soon, so I could get in on that. I'm looking for something a little more dressy though. Thanks!

    I wish these were offered in an E width. They're a fantastic looking makeup.
