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.

    Assuming I already have a wingtip blucher (AF80 or 975), I'd dump the Wingtip boot and choose between the two tankers for the second dumped pair. I suppose it also depends on what your routine attire looks like and the extent of the rest of your collection of shoes, as well.

    I do not own a tanker boot, but I suspect that if I did, I would like to keep both??

    I do not own a chukka, but the cigar would without a doubt, be my first choice. Surprisingly, the black shell chukka on commando might be my second.

    I'd keep all the #8s … nice family. Definitely lose the cigar chukka (though I do love my #8 Chukkas). I'd part with a black pair. Choosing the one you wear the least. What size are you again? Might wanna black boot ;)

    I would kill for that line up, and wouldnt sell a thing. That being said, if I HAD to choose, I'd get rid of the Black cap toe boot and the black tanker. Never been a huge tanker fan, and I don't wear black shoes/boots very often. But again, I would keep all of them. Unless you're my size....

    Sir, those are magnificent. The Chukka is not my favorite style, but I do appreciate it. Continue to enjoy yours! :)

    Very nice sample of suede!

    Nice ensamble. The Wingtips look killer and really pop.

    Nice tankers. Enjoy your vacation!

    Don, I love your Longwings. I really love the Whiskey LWB...

    a joking pic from another forum about the resiliency of cxl..

    started as a scrap whilst holding the door for a pretty woman


    [​IMG]

    which then escalated into an inscription

    [​IMG]

    which then expanded

    [​IMG]

    and then finally, after less than a minute with a cheap horsehair

    [​IMG]


    as much as I LOATHE CXL for its creasing, I cannot underappreciate the ability to work out scuffs etc since it is so oily..

    I would sell black captoe boot in favor of keeping the cigar version. Maybe the #8 tanker considering you have the black version and two other #8 boots but it would be a really tough call.
