    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.

    I went in a little hot and ordered a size 8D forgetting that my Barrie size is 7.5D, so now I have orders in for both and the 8D will get cancelled, couldn't risk my size disappearing while I waited for Leffot to respond to my initial screw up.

    Damn that sold out fast! Luckily I'm not a Tanker guy so I had no intentions of ordering it anyways.

    I have both :) I don't think it's ridiculous at all...they look quite different.

    Thank goodness my wallet has 12-16 weeks to prepare for this one. The exchange rate is brutal to Canada at the moment, already up to $173 CAD. I think I am going to be upwards of $900 CAD after shipping, not including any duties or fees at delivery haha. I really better love these boots.

    One should be back up soon, the refund for my mis-ordered 8D just went through.

    Well that escalated quickly. Any idea how many 8Ds were even available for pre-order?

    Damn you, you fast-fingered 8.5D-ers! Er, I mean, thank you for saving me time and money!

    Ever the crack addict, I emailed Leffot to see if they'd add another 8.5D to the list.

    To alleviate my pain on potentially missing out--yet again--on the tankers on Barrie, let me make a whiskey weds contribution:

    These lhs's just arrived from Alden of SF this morning. Perfectly consistent color. Nice touch for them to throw in the tan paste wax. A $5.00 gift plus their not sending me a defective pair will go a long way toward making me a repeat customer. I'm just thrilled because the whiskey lhs was going to be my first shell shoe ever when I got into the game last year. Of course, when I ordered last year, I got a mismatched pair in which left and right shoe were off by about a half inch from one another. Ended up with the cigar lhs instead, which I sized totally wrong, going 9C. These whiskeys are 8.5D, ie my barrie size, and they fit like a glove. Sometimes I overcomplicate things. Lesson learned. Just listen to Macarthur when it comes to sizing advice.

    Anyway here are some pics with and without flash

    I feel the same way doc.
    I decided to pre-order because I like the way they look when members share their photos.

    This is a win - win. win if you get a great makeup, win if you pass and save some money because you already have your other boots.

    I really like that. Where did you get it? I looked for 'alden unlined dover' and only see CXL versions.

    Those pre-order boots from Leffot are great, they'd be even better without the TifosiToe up front.
