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.

    Thanks all. They are instantly my favorite boots which is ironic as at one point I nearly tried to back out of the preorder or agree to sell them.

    I thought my cigar captoes would never be supplanted, but the Leffot tankers have taken over as my favorite boots. The black captoes are now competing with the cigars for #2.

    This scotch grain thing is starting to grow on me. Those wingtip boots are amazing. Who offered those? Those are calf, correct?

    The scotch grain boots are shell.

    Pretty sure they're shell -- I've seen photos (only that, mind you) of scotch-grain color 8 cordovan.

    Holy BeJesus. I thought so, but I didn't want to say it. That is a whole different type of awesomeness. I need them!

    cant see any reason why a scotch grain #8 offering couldn't be done up (assuming the tooling is still avail)

    I'd be in in a heartbeat

    Anyone know who made those come about? Not that we'll ever see them again... Although may be easier than Ravello/Whiskey/Color 4

    The shells would have to be embossed with the pattern (possibly by a third party if Horween does not offer it anymore)

    ^ Viberg offers scotch grain horse hide (and I think cordovan but not sure). I would not think it is beyond Alden but who knows.

    I'm not sure who the OP was, but how long ago were those available?
