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.

    Cheers,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    Thanks !
    Thank your sir. Mine get hazy very easily too. I stopped stressing over it though. They shall be what they shall be.
    Thank you! My new years resolution is to bend and flex less. I may only wear my shells while watching tv, with my feet up, in the future.

    Winter be damned and I'm thinking about Spring. I need some advice on the Pros and Cons of a lined -vs- unlined suede chukka? I'm leaning towards the lined. ( my feet get kinda sweaty) Any thoughts?

    DV, stop treating them. Just wipe them with a damp cloth and brush them to death. From your description, they may be saturated with oils....

    bkotsko, that's precisely my size.

    Definitely get "Large" (I have 3 pairs) - they'll barely fit over your LWBs (and other Barrie 360-welt shoes) but will be perfect for anything sleeker.

    seems like unlined would allow your feet to breathe more, since suede is so porous...

    Fransboone is a little pricey for me to have shipped to the states but when I got wind of this shoe, I was very willing to pay the premium. Unfortunately by the time I found out, they were all gone. An elegantly understated plain-toe style in a rare, but versatile shade of shell, with exposed eyelets and crepe sole. Easily one of the "cooler" styles around. Combo is not bad either. Nicely done.

    Shoe shops aside, pretty much every popular menswear store on the planet does an Alden collaboration these days...
