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,

    Quote:Yeah, that's about my limit too. I really really love the boots, but I've got more than enough shoes now to last me many years. I'm ok with the price tag since I'll be wearing the hell outta these. I couldn't justify that price for something I would only wear once a month though.

    Why is cigar considered rare shell? Does Horween need a clear skin to make it? I am sincerely curious. There have been batches of cigar that has been darker than #8, and that's part of the reason for this question.

    The recent run of cigar boots from DC looks quite nice. Enjoy them. Cheers.

    This is an eternal mystery...
    It has been pondered before.

    Quote:Honestly I don't know, but my personal opinion is that it has to do with marketing. While I universally enjoy most shades of #8, there are only a few shades of Ravello, Cigar, and Whiskey that I truely like. This is why I was anxious to see the cigar boots in person yesterday. Had they turned out nearly black, I might have passed on them. I agree though that the shade turned out to be killer, so I'm really happy with them.

    Unfortunately no one can answer that. It has been discussed quite a few times here. The "old cigar", maybe. The new stuff doesn't seem to need anything special.
