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,

    That's what I'm hoping for the Day Tripper as well. It's a toss up though. I don't mind the darker Ravello, but I'm afraid it would compete with my Cigar boots once they lighten up a bit. I'm a fan of the slightly reddish, lighter Ravello.

    Just caught up on 200+ posts. Work is piling high! Great looking pics today and yesterday gents; y'all continue to kill it!! Haven't even had the time to think about Alden and new shells, but here is what I sported yesterday...

    Black Shell LWBs... (I actually wore with a suit; thought it worked quite well.)

    I went with a non-Alden suede saddle buck today (not pictured here). Cheers!

    My hopes are that these along with the DC Captoe's come as a lighter shade while the Alden Madison wingtips come with with a darker edging and darker shade. Time will tell. Just happy to have the opportunity.

    So is it the general consensus that the same size is worn in both Aberdeen and Leydon?

    These look much better than the same model I wore yesterday. For those who have the black shell longwings... What do you usually wear them with? AHS

    I don't have kids (getting married in May!) but these NST's might as well be my babies seeing as how much I love them!
