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.

    Had all of 5 minutes to check them out. Kind of the yang to the yin of the color 8s. Oily, dark, and rugged. I like them but they definitely will improve with age and hard wear. I never planned to baby the color 8s but I would also never reach for them in really bad weather. These will do that job.

    A few years ago, Leather sole offered a plain toe blucher on aberdeen as well as, I think, plaza in the past in both color 8 and black shell.

    I know it is foot dependant and most people stay the same size in both Barrie and TB but I am wondering what the scenario would be for me.. Barrie is just slightly big in the forefoot for me. Would a TB boot be unreasonable (I would be wearing the boot in the winter with thicker socks).

    Anyone have experience in this matter?

    No spoiler since it's double Tankers. Outstanding B! Congrats once again. Don't forget about Tanker Tuesdays once the weather start getting cooler.

    I love my Aldens, but if any boot can challenge Alden, it's the Viberg Service Boot. Just pulled the trigger on these a week ago!!!

    If wearing with thicker socks you might consider bumping up a 1/2 size and/or width, depending on how the barrie fits you. If the Barrie is slightly big on your foot, you may be ok with thicker socks.

    i recently picked up the Indy (TB) in my barrie size, that fits me well. With thinner socks they sizing was effectively the same but felt snug when I put on thicker athletic socks. FWIW you might try putting on your barries with the socks you plan to wear with the Indy's to get an idea.

    I have the same scenario. I wear the same size in both and the Trubalance is not unreasonable at all. With thick socks it will be good. I don't really imagine anyone wearing thin dress socks with Indys anyway.
