1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    Yeah, there are a couple pair of Cigar Indies up right now. The other I've seen is an 11C or something weird like that.

    No flash in those pics. Just held at an angle under an overhead light. I gave them a pretty good look over when I got them and even took pics, but I must have just caught them at the right (or wrong) angle.

    After a few steps a lot of it will be caught up in the folds, and Im guessing over time it will blend (someone with more knowledge than me might have better insight into that). Sucks I know the feeling and I will admit my initial reaction and general behavior to this point falls in line with BK and Beebs words.

    My Dovers have the exact same dye splotching on portions of both shoes. It is what it is. No one will ever notice unless you point it out to them specifically.

    I have similar splotching on my color 8 shortwing bluchers. I didn't notice it until 6-7 months after purchasing them. While I am not crazy about the splotching, this shoe has by far my favorite shade of color 8... (pic doesn't do the eggplant color justice)

    The more I wear them, the more I like the tru-balance last of them.

    Tifosi your new boots look awesome. They might have some splotching but that will be unnoticed once you start wearing them. They're one of a kind and they're AWESOME!

    Got my 990 (#8 PTBs) seconds from TSM yesterday.

    The heel is very obviously defective and I will be returning them.

    These were in 10D.

    Ive had other pairs of 2nds from TSM and struggled to tell what the issue was.

    Thanks. Whoever put the finish on this batch deserves a raise. My youngest son (who's never said anything about shoes) said "Whoa, they seriously need to make those in kid sizes".

    Tifosi - your LWB are unacceptable and unwearable.

    FedEx them to me immediately.
