    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.

    Thank you. That green is great and versatile. The pants are olive rivet chinos (I think). I wish Epaulet tags gave more info than just the size. I can't always remember the colors and fabrics.

    Armoury for Epaulet, but they have sold out. I saw the same jeans at leather soul Honolulu a couple of weeks ago. These are my new favorite jeans.

    I have only had them for a couple months. I have not noticed significant stretching, however they were not tight at all when they were purchased, they fit comfortably from the beginning so there was not any pressure forcing them to stretch... I have heard that the suede will "ease" but I would not rely on it to give you a whole width up. I was say if the width is right but they are indeed long, then a 9E would match the 9 1/2D in width, but give you the desired length...

    Too bad - hopefully BB will restock sooner than later. I'm considering sending them to b. Nelson for dainite soles to make it even better for rainy/wet days.

    Very nice! I really like the medallion shape. There was discussion on the C&J thread about how...suggestive..their medallions look.. Not the case with yours. Fits the shape of the shoe perfectly. Classic look.

    Definitely Yea. Those are sweet boots with a really nice shine. Never heard the 'rule' but context leads me to believe faded denim and color 8 is a no-no. If so, I break that rule at least once a week.

    Is this shell bloom/spue? Is there away to tell definitively? Could it be mildew? Thanks in advance.

    Does it brush right off?

    Nearly every pair of shell shoes/boots I've gotten from The Shoe Mart has had similar white flecks on them but it always brushes right off. I always chalked it up to some sort of dust floating around in their warehouse or maybe even from Alden's facility and smaller retailers are more apt to brush it off before shipping it out but TSM doesn't.

    Wow, this is bloom coming off the shell, perfectly normal and desirable as the bloom means the shell is infused with oils. You'll have these boot for 30+ years. BTW this is one of my favorite makeups. Very cool boots .. Enjoy!

    Does anyone use Saphir Super Invulner to waterproof cordovan?

    Alden products are pretty hard to get in Australia and I'd likely have to pay international shipping rates to get some Leather Defender..

    Does anyone know if there is a vendor offering a brown CXL wingtip boot, preferably with no speed hooks, on the barrie or trubalance?

    I got Invulner in my easter basket from the wife, the can itself is not really all that informative, I myself have been reluctant to put it on anything other than suede.
