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.

    Wait, is this actually possible? Just brush/buff until the cows come home? Or is there deer boning involved? I thought creases were more or less there to stay once they developed

    I don't think it's possible to eliminate the creases. I think the buffing and brushing diminishes the bloom so that creases are less visible.

    Did Jcrew raise their Alden prices or is this a mistake? $796 for the cordovan captoe boots? What happened?
    I was just about to pull the trigger for the alpine wingtip boot but now its $650. Wow suddenly $750 for a rare shell makeup is a value compared to Jcrew prices.

    Massive deer boning and brushing gets you mostly there....I do it to my King Tankers often to keep the rolls down....

    Wow, I remember when I first got mine (J Crew Perf Cap toe boots). I think they were $599 before taxes.

    Anyone looking to get rid of their #8 Cordovan Wingtip Boots (preferably on commando) in 9.5D or 10D (if the 9.5 is a smaller 9.5) let me know.

    My apologies. I was being taken to the Canadian website for some odd reason. Wow, I feel for our Canadian neighbors.

    Nothing really in my sizes either. Only interesting things were a 10D 975 and a 10.5D 974... But I don't need either of those and thats not my preferred size...

    looks like the 9.5E ravello chukka is back in play at TSM. I'm guessing there are about 20 people on hold trying to get it though.
    Not much else to talk about in the 9.5 - 10 range

    I totally agree. I prefer a heel to be nailed rather than stitched 9 out of 10 times. Cleaner, classic and elegant! The is why the 270 welt on Jcrew PCT boot is so attractive as well.
