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,

    I got the 6+ as well. I stayed up to order, so I should be getting them on launch. The trick has typically been to use the iPhone Apple Store App as that came up quicker, which it has the past couple of years. When I went to bed at 1AM, store.apple.com was still down. Hoping that they fit in my pants pockets!!! I am looking forward to taking shoefies with the new iPhone camera... :)

    I do leatherworking as a side hobby so I took a few comparison pictures of my Alden x J.Crew #8 PCT three months of use comparing it to a shell of #8 directly from Horween. I thought others might appreciate the comparison considering how dark the Alden #8 can be right from the get go.

    Those look pretty close to the same to me... :) But those shoes look like they have been worn a couple of times...

    I think those boots are absolutely spectacular, but thats just me... :) Mac has a lot of killer footwear, but that is at or near the top of my list of his shoes.

    Yup - I've had them for about three months with roughly eight wears on them. Alden's #8 was slightly darker when I got them but they have definitely lightened up to almost match Horween's #8.

    Got a 6 Plus as well. Gave up on Apple and ordered from ATT since it was 3am. I will also likely grab a stainless watch when released.

    Congrats to all of you who grabbed the new iphone. I'm not eligible for an upgrade until this time next year (have the 5s), or I would have ordered the 6. The 6 plus is too big for me I believe.

    I was just keeping my mouth shut but really.. outdated technology at this point. I'm using a OPO right now and it is light years ahead of anything Apple will be producing in the near future.
