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.

    Does anyone own Cigar LWB 97896 from SF? Want to see how different compares to recently batch from NYC.
    Any pics would give me much helps. Thanks - Tee

    BB PTB for me today

    Every time I put this shoe on I remember how much I like.

    A bit of a rushed photo though.

    There are two really good menswear stores here in town and and I always feel a little tinge of guilt when I wear something from one of them into the other store. :paranoia:

    Cigar day, can't remember the last time I wore these. With the recent sales prices on the bay, makes one wonder if worth keeping around.

    I know Cigar LWB from TSM and AoC have the lighter color edge trim (#97894) which might be the same with NYC's last batch but I cannot see much pictures of Cigar LWB (#97896) from SF after googling for a while. So I hope some folks here would have them and might be able to share their pics.

    I only wear my straight tip shell boots to work. Honestly, my work attire doesn't change much from season to season. I just add/eliminate sweaters and heavy wool/flannel trousers basically.

    I've been thinking the same as I hardly wear my cigar captoe boots. However I like the look of the Grant last so will try to wear more often. I'm now thinking of off loading my cigar Indys instead as something about the square instead of rounded stitching at the toe bothers me.

    What last are the Indys on?

    I frequently wish I had gotten these instead of the 9901. Still happy though, with the stock alden version. Great shoe my friend...
