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.

    Cheers,

    Nice mix of materials today. Love that pebble grain. Wearing my #8 4060 shell boots, but I don't feel like taking a pic. :)

    AofC has a preorder of these on a commando sole. I am thinking about jumping on them.

    Yes, sir they are lined and for sure the unlined brown version would show more creasing. The AE boots are also made of CXL, again lined though.

    Yes they are 9D. Sorry to hear about your experience. I think they check stock manually and hence unreliable stock taking.

    Unlined Dover from Leffot acquired from another SF member. I'm a big fan of the waterlock sole. These are super comfy.

    I almost bought the ones from AofC but decided on the JCrew’s with the leather soles. Hard to find makeup though!

    Welcome to the club! Easily my favorite non-shell, Alden that I own. (MrDV has snagged every other one I've desired... snuff color 8 saddles from J Crew) Nothin' but love for ya DV! [​IMG]

    Beautiful my friend!

    Very nice DonL... I've nearly pulled the trigger on the tan LWB several times in the past... regretting not doing it.

    No comparison my friend, snag yourself either one when the opportunity presents itself!

    Gents, great minds think (and dress) alike!

    We need a time series of pics so that we may monitor patina development.

    I only wear these about once a week, but I would be shocked (and sad) if the ended up looking like that....they have definitely wrinkled but nothing like the pair listed on ebay......shoe trees go in immediately after they are taken off......I would guess that may not be the case with the pair on ebay

    These are have developed wrinkles as well, but they seem to be linear rather than sporadic which does not bother me in the least.....same with the CXL tassels I have been wearing lately
