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.

    This is where it helps to have a long-standing prior relationship with JC personnel. I don't buy so many clothes from them nowadays, but find that when picking up sale items, little purchases such as socks or belts or gifts for the wife, I always go through my JC personal stylist (even if I can get it at the JC in my downtown area) as she is often willing to give me expedited shipping for free or discounts I may not necessarily be eligible for. I've seen JC staff make so many arbitrary decisions about pricing (e.g., some honor the educational discount on top of 40% off sales, some honor the ed discount on Aldens, whereas others don't do anything special) that I don't think it's outrageous to start by saying you saw on the forum that the price had been different yesterday and would the JC folks consider honoring yesterday's price. No need to start giving up too much info about the credit card issue, which the staff may not even be thinking about in the moment. I wouldn't worry too much about JC; it's all profit to them. They seem glad to invest in a long-term relationship with a customer rather than get caught up in what amounts to nickels and dimes.

    Why? Just wondering. I have a card and certainly haven't regretted getting it.

    Just a few more inches and he would have hit the knee. Now we need a WAYWT where the person cuffs their entire inseam.

    Here is a picture of the NST boots at Unionmade....they appear to have double-leather waterlock soles.

    Indecision is the worst decision. Buy now (while you can, decide later)

    as someone with no Alden boots, would brown and natural CXL boots in the same style be redundant?

    I would say yes. If you want the brown more, I would hold out. You'll only end up spending twice as much in the long run if you don't get what you want.

    Personally, I am more interested in dark brown CXL as I think it's more versatile. I would definitely like to see more pics of this boot though, and I bet it'll age very nicely.

    Is Unionmade going to put these online or are they in-store only?
