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.

    I have two pairs of Longwings on order and I intend to keep only one pair (but might end up keeping both, you know how it goes....)

    The first pair is from Unionmade, the Alpine Brown Longwings in grain leather.

    http://unionmadegoods.com/product/alden-stockton-longwing-in-brown-alpine-grain-8789-2/

    The other pair is from J Crew, the Tobacco Longwings.

    https://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/shoes/oxfords/PRDOVR~18582/18582.jsp

    Does anybody have any experience and/or pictures with both of these colors? Are they different enough to justify keeping both?

    I'll also add that I don't wear wingtips a lot. I mainly lean towards the indy boots for casual, and Alfred Sargent double monk straps or Alden cordovan boots for work/ formal occasions.

    Many on here owned the J Crew ones. I like the Unionmade ones quite a bit. They are very, very similar and will come down to whether you want a grained leather or not

    Beautiful! It's only been a week since I sent my deposit for a pair of these bad boys. Only 26 more weeks to go [​IMG]

    Cancel your order for both and go straight to a ravello or cigar lwb waitlist. You know that's where you'll ultimately end up...haha!

    I like the Unionmade Alpine much more. Much more depth in the color and a bit more unique.

    This is probably the most honest advice!

    I shouldn't drunk shop, but those size 9.5 snuff suede Dovers that have been on sale at Haberdash finally got the best of me. Incoming!

    If you have to go with the two I'd go with Sazon's choice. Alpine is not something you regularly see everday and JCrew's make up is always available with all sizes.

    Those looks terrific, though they look exactly like my Ravellos!!! Very light, but beautiful Cigars.

    I had to scrub the showers, so I had no arm left for shoes. :-(

    Thanks @TommyB!

    Thanks @mdubs! I hear ya! Scrubbing showers is a terrible waste of energy that would be better spent on the Mac Method. :)
