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.

    The jeans are the Unbranded tapered 201.

    Not sure what you mean by wear them tighter though, CXL has some stretch compared to shell so if the shoe was tight it would stretch a bit. I haven't found my pair to stretch much though as they are lined. The unlined brown stretches quite a bit from what I understand.

    Hmm, sounds expensive, at least the cost of a new pair of shells or two. JK! Congrats to you both, have a great trip. Don't let the casino guys take all your money for them to buy shoes with :)

    I can't belive it's only been 1 year for you, I thought for some reason you were married longer. We'll hit (gulp) 15 in September.

    So what's in the bags?

    On the 2030, I'd say an 11 could work for you.

    In my experience, 7.5e Trubalance fits like 8e Barrie. A 7.5EE would be wider than the 8E Barrie, FYI.

    Up in width is always wider than up in length.

    I initially had an order in for the same brown alpine LWB from Adam. Wanted to diversify and swapped them out for this pair of black alpine LWB because I'm waiting for the alpine grain NST from J Gilbert. I am also digging the alpine grain these days!

    Nice mix, you will be well covered. Hopefully not in sand though!

    Seems like the 4060 and PTB are staples for you, can't go wrong there.

    Congrats! That is awesome! I pre-ordered a pair as well. It was my first purchase from Leffot. I got an abnormal size so I had to pay in full.

    enjoy your time in other parts of styleforum. while I didn't really pay attention to any of your posts, or the subsequent backlash, I wish you well
