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 cool Chukkas, look rather comfy... We don't see many of those on here! I tried to buy a pair, but just couldn't find a size that didn't scratch my ankle up... :-(

    That's awesome, great find.
    I have never walked into a store and bought Aldens before. All my purchases have been online and a handful of local deals w mcash.

    Beebs, you and DV are neck-and-neck for best boot collection. The weight of all that lovely California shell (if you add Mdubs) may actually be the primary reason why the state eventually fractures at the fault line and falls into the Pacific!

    And for a more casual Friday, a nice twist on the classic PTB design... Navy Suede with Antique Edges... Wore with tan chinos, Snuff Belt (to match edging) and a Navy polo... Brown socks for sure next time I wear Navy Suede... The Navy argyles sounded like a good thought at 6AM, but a lot does that early...

    Thank you both! They are great boots and have held up well. They are my most complimented shoes/boots.

    Thanks! Were they tight around the ankle? Mine were really soft around there right out of the box.

    The stitching on the left boot scratched my ankle up and I knew that I just couldn't get them... That would really bother me after a few hours... :-( It is okay, because despite really liking the style, I just never could find a good use for the pair of AE Snuff Chukkas that I bought last year and expect that in the end, I would have the same issue with the Alden.
