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,

    The old (pre-prada) Church's used to have even flimsier boxes for their Custom grade line - made of thin sheets of laminated cardboard (the kind where the lid would wobble if you poked it). then came prada and nicer boxes, of course

    boxes would be a good place to cut costs, imo, although whether necessary or not is a different question

    I rather like the boxes. Simple and understated as to not distract from the treasure inside. Reminds me a lot of the 70's-80's Rolex Sport watch boxes. Flimsy cardboard for the price of gold. Nowadays it takes 2 hours just to sift through Rolex documentation alone. It just gets messy. I'd rather have the cheesy mossy rock cardboard box.

    But yes, they could be thicker and nicer.

    Guys, I'm in the camp of not caring - at all - about the boxes. I throw most of them out. They take up space and are likely to annoy the wife. I do save some to store shoes not used during a season. But I care very little about them so long as shoes fit inside of them.

    Wore my JCrew #8 PCT boots today. I noticed the other day they don't show them on their website currently. Hope they become available again sometime soon.

    See Ya,
    Steve

    It doesn't get much better than with some col 8 and a plain toe!

    I'm not at home right now to check, but is there a way to fold the Alden shoe boxes flat? That may be a way to store them and conserve space.

    I hope they do as well. I sorta prefer these to the stock 4060, and I prefer the 270 welt. Great looking boot.

    They do act as evidence of the number of pairs one has acquired. [​IMG]
