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,

    And my size of the Color 8 Indys is in stock at TSM. Too bad I have to pay my property tax bill instead.

    I'm enjoying the Chuch Hill Indys. They somehow don't feel like Indy boots due to the narrower sole.

    Very nice. I think I like the Ravello more though. But it appears from this picture it would be real close to the Marlow however.

    I like my Kudu Indys when it's raining. They are indescructable and seem almost totally waterproof, and so comfy. I've worn them in the snow too, no issues. They come with a vibram hiking sole.

    Everytime I see your ChurchHill Indy, I am amazed by how much it looks like a whiskey Indy.

    I like the ChurchHill as well. Nice looking boot. It does have an uncanning resemblance of the Whiskey Shell Indy Boot.

    Those look magnificent by my book! I don't mind hooks either. I appreciate their convenience.

    Nice Nice Nice!!
    Unlike many others, I happen to like speedhooks much more than eyelets. They tie faster and look better to me.

    BTW, have your Gustin denim arrived, Mike? I am considering getting one myself and wanna know how you think about them comparing with RRL's?

    Thanks!

    Thanks. No Gustin here yet. Probably November. Hopefully when the Ravello WT Boots arrive. I know zennypoo has both. Also, RydenFan seems to be very knowledgeable of Denim in general.

    B. Nelson is a very prestigious cobbler. If I were to not go to Alden, I would go there.
