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.

    Are the Alden + Context Roy Snuff Suede Boots suitable for warmer months? It wasn't clear to me from the description if they were unlined.

    I love my unlined suede PTBs for comfort in the summer. I love my cordovan boots, but they get too hot. I was wondering if the snuff suede Roys would be a little cooler.

    Thanks for the advice!

    Send them an email to check if they are unlined. They are very helpful.

    Gotta make hay while the sun is shining. Got a lot of work to get done in a short time frame. The overtime pay doesn't hurt, either...[​IMG]

    Exactly! I'll keep it stashed away till something major gets released!

    hefner, I love my cordovan boots too, even in the summer. I've found that the key to happy feet while wearing cordovan boots in the summer is picking the right socks. I stay away from cotton socks because when cotton gets damp it stay damp. Very fine merino wool is super comfortable all day long, but some people just can't wear it. A couple years ago I needed some new socks for golf and discovered a fabric that doesn't itch, is really soft and cushiony, wicks away moisture and never feels damp, and is tough as nails. Bamboo my friend is a plant people have been making cloths out of forever. More expensive than a bag of socks from Wal-mart, but cheaper than your Italian wools and cashmere.

    Ended up buying these cigar gunboats of eBay. My size is pretty rare. I just started wearing them around the house without the laces. They feel a bit tight, but hopefully they will stretch enough.

    They need some Mac love to get that good shine. Should I apply Renovateur or Cordovan creme to them before paste wax?

    Just a word of caution...shell does not stretch like calf leather.

    I wouldn't apply any cream or wax. Just the mac method.

    I, personally, would just try the Mac method first and see how they look/feel. Wax would be my last resort.
