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 know. I still haven't mastered the Add To Cart button. Hopefully this site is easier.

    New Unionmade tankers in today. Much darker than I expected but I actually like them quite a bit. Real oily texture, very different.

    Wow, those look much nicer to me now than before when I saw them on the website. The sole looked off to me there, but here it really looks to work. Really handsome boot. Hrrm.

    BB Black Fleece black pebble grain longwings on sale for $220 minus 30% off recent sale minus $25 off coupon = $129. Sewed in tag on tongue says: Season - Autumn 2007 - but they look to be first quality with no signs of wear. I'm excited! I think they're great for rain days ![​IMG]

    I believe these are on the grant last. They appear sleeker next to my color 8 PTBs. I went TTS and they fit great. I size down 1/2 for Barrie.

    don't know. I called the Brooks Brothers online number and they did a store search - connected me to the Brooks store in NY on Bleaker street and they had my size. The SA had to go digging through their stock to find it, but I was in luck.

    Fantastic score!

    Dumb question, but are you sure they're Aldens? None of the shoes currently on the BF page are even made in the U.S.

    What the heck is faded denim... You must have had that pair of raw denim for ten years to get them looking that way [​IMG]



    In all seriousness I think it looks great together, those are some awesome boots. The color seems lighter than most Alden no 8, closer to the intended Horween color.

    I don't know what the rules are, but I think that combo looks great. It's why I love color 8. It goes with almost everything. The shape of the boot and the way you laced them makes them casual enough for jeans, and the cap toe and color give it a dressy-casual feel. Really like the combo and may try the same this weekend with my color 8 dovers.

    If anyone is hunting for a pair of Cigar LHS in 10.5D, I just shipped some back to the ShoeMart. They should receive them mid-next week. Unfortunately, they were a tad too wide for me. Hopefully someone here can snag them!
