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,

    Very nice, I like the sock coordination with the shoes. Are those Marlows?

    Since they are US-made you should be paying no import taxes in Canada.

    Pitt boot wins, easily.

    Cigar goes well with blue denim.

    I'll try to post some pics tomorrow, just got my pair today but haven't seen them in natural light yet,here's a quick pic(poor lighting) next to Cigar.

    Both models are actually lighter than what they look in the pic.

    I prefer the Pitt in other camera angles I've seen, but from this angle the Jumper looks nicer. I can't explain why because an 8.5D cigar pitt is basically my grail.

    There is no fashion faux pas. He is expressing his opinion. I respectfully disagree with it and I think many others here do as well.

    ^ Lol. I got lucky with both pairs. A pretty seasoned collector from the midwest was thinning out his collection and I was in the right place at the right time. I may keep both, but will likely sell the Pitt. Both look very nice IRL, and both shit all over my Color 4s

    Beebs, don't let us influence you too much! I think that most here would prefer the Cap Toes, but if you like the Pitts more, I would say keep them. Although they are both very rare boots, I think the Plain Toe Boot is a pidge more rare than the Jumper (close to the Naval Boot). Either way though, it is hard to go wrong...
