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.

    These are some similar splotches on my LWB and Dovers. When I really checked my #8 Naval boots I noticed dots all over the boots that are concealed under normal lighting. Looks like imperfections in the hide that I think will add to the patina once the boots get some extensive wear.

    Thanks! there is some pretty deep slush outside my office so never hurts to have the extra protection. Charlestown is not known for their street cleaning services...

    Looks great! Very similar in look and style to the shoe I posted today that I am wearing. I personally love the look up suede when beat up so I think you would be fine. Plus the Targo spray from Leffot is awesome.

    Seriously Tifosi...what is Santa going to bring you this year?

    I'm sure everyone on here gets the same line from their significant other:

    "I can't buy you anything because you just go out and buy what you want all the time..."

    Ahhh the NSTs which I refer to as "ACT's" Alden Camel Toes. They ruined a perfectly good shoe with that split toe. It's like putting nuts or raisins in a cookie [​IMG]

    I consider it a 'flavor enhancer' just like nuts or raisins...

    They look great.................makes me question my decision to go for the LWB over the Tankers when the obvious decision was to get both.
    Wear in good health my man, the finish looks pristine!
