1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Cigar Indy by Alden for J.Gilbert
    Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado

    Definitely not the most comfortable hiking footwear I've worn, but by far the best looking.

    Since they're double soled they are most likely OK, though they do look like they are fairly well worn. If I were to buy them, I'd want to get them recrafted anyway, which means at $400, you'd have well over $500 in them. I'd just as soon try to find a new pair and the only way I'd go for those would be if I could get them for under $300, or I simply had to have the cigar LWB and there were no other options. I have that shoe and I am glad I do. Sounds like it may be hard to come by, if it isn't already.

    Are you really asking that question on this thread? [​IMG]
    Seriously though, the McNeil is a fine shoe but there is absolutely no comparison as far as fit, comfort, finishing, and overall quality. The difference in calf or color 8 shell is about $175 and well worth it IMHO. [​IMG]

    I was at Columbus Circle Mall this morning and saw the Alden for J Crew, tobacco waxed LWB and they look fabulous... much better than my 3 year old pair that has an orange-ish hue. This newer pair looks a little darker; more brownish than orange. It looks more like a calf version of ravello. Wish mine looked like them. Anyone here looking for a cheaper alternative to the ravello LW grail should check them out.
