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,

    Your preferences should keep your future targets safe from the ravenous shell wolves on this thread, especially the 10Ds! [​IMG]

    I would expect that a "decent" condition used #4 anything would easily clear over $1,000 with the amount of competition/demand here.

    I'm in the same boat. I really like Cigar and I don't have that from Alden. But you can get "brown" shell from AE pretty regularly.

    I see the #8 LWBs on the J Crew site took a healthy jump from $645 to $697.

    I would do yourself a favor and forget you ever saw/ read about #4 captoe boots. It will make your life so much easier.

    I'm with you, Ryden. I wanted to do a Dover next, but I might be able to be talked into the Nevis.

    The boots took a $30 jump too. And I just looked and the waxed bluchers I got in 2011 (the ones with the stitching that came undone) have jumped up $100.

    My lust for other brands grows deeper.


    But seriously how the hell are shell Vibergs $500 more than the rest of them?
