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,

    I like the boots mike. I haven't purchased cxl yet, but I would buy these. I think the blue socks are also a nice touch.

    To each their own and I may sound like a crank, but I just could not accept a pair of shoes conspicuously mismatched like that. Esp at that price. I don't care if its "rare shell", it should LOOK GOOD and mismatched shoes IMO do not look good. Maybe this is a trend in Williamsburg, but mismatched $700 shoes are like paying extra to sport a rare faux pas.

    I doubt you would be happy with the results. They are likely to come back a dark Ravello, but not in a good way. Shaunw had a pair refinished lately, find his pics.

    For what's its worth, my whiskey short wings have panels / sections that are different shades. Over time, this will all even out - mine even have parts that shift color depending on the viewing angle. I would wear those and be happy :happy: Good luck either way!

    Great-looking kicks, but sock-less with gunboats? Not sure I'm on board with that . . .

    These were an ebay score from last fall, originally made up for Leather Soul.

    After viewing this cigar LWB. I just hope that the factory are making the captoe boot with the same batch of shell. Looks really good!!

    TSM has some larger size of cigar LWB and LHS. You might wanna give them a call.

    I really hope so as well. The latest cigar batch is insane!

    Can't wait Alden DC drop.


    On arrival note, my JCrew #8 PCT boots just shipped. Ordered over month and half ago.
