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.

    Alden doesn't replace the insole either. BNelson does nice work.

    (...just like Columbus) Yah, instead of slaughtering Native peoples, you're participating in the slaughter of horses. I'm okay with the later. [​IMG]

    BTW, those are spectacular-looking LHS.

    Mac's shoes are like glass. Alden hasn't done shell that smooth for a while.

    PSA: For those looking for a great pair of overshoes (galoshes) to protect our precious, rare and exotic shells from wet, sloppy, wintery weather, J Crew has Swims galoshes on sale for $59.50 (they retail for $95). It's a great value.

    I think what you mean is:

    Then felt I like some watcher of the skies
    When a new planet swims into his ken;
    Or like stout Cortez when with eagle eyes
    He star'd at the Pacific — and all his men
    Look'd at each other with a wild surmise —
    Silent, upon a peak in Darien.

    Any other CT town would probably work as well:D

    Mike, didn't somebody just do a run of those? I thought, anyway.
    For black boots I like the Naval from Leffot and the 4065 straight tip. I had the 4065, but it didn't get much use to I sold it off.


    You speak the truth...

    I'm likely in the minority but I actually like the look and feel of crepe slightly better for casual but if you're planning on dressing up, I would probably go commando.

    Upon first read I'm thinking 'what the heck is Tif talking about'? In my defense, I exceeded my self-imposed 2 drink limit at a Father's Day picnic last night so I'm feeling a little sluggish this morning. Once I figured it out, got a good laugh out of it.

    Kind of related, my jcrew 8's with exposed eyelets on crepe sold last night on EBAY. I have this pit in my stomach as of all of my shells (rare included) these are easily my favorites and I know they will never come my way again. If they were 1/2 size smaller, I would wear these into the ground.

    Oh well, they're only shoes. At least that what I keep telling myself.

    They are just shoes, Shawn.

    You think it's a Crew makeup that will never come around again?

    I do. I obviously don't have any inside information but they have restocked all of their shells a few times over but never these. I've been on the lookout ever since I realized that these were a little larger than I would prefer.

    I'll keep my fingers crossed but I'm not too optimistic.

    Gentlemen, I just picked these up on Ebay and have searched the forum and other references for how to treat Aniline shoes. Do I put a little brown shoe polish on the back of these to cover the few scuffs on the heel? Thanks for the help.
