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,

    Was looking over the Leffot Chamoise captoe boot and noticed these two stitch loops.

    Any thoughts on this developing into an issue down the road? Never seen that before.

    Not sure if anyone here wants to see this, but I thought it would be interesting to at least compare Natural Shell with Whiskey Shell Cordovan.

    Now with some Alden's for a more thorough color comparison. (L to R: Allen Edmonds Brown Shell Strands, Alden Cigar LWBs (Just Arrived!), AE Walnut Shell Strands, Alden Ravello LWBs, AE Natty Shell Strands, Alden Whiskey LWBs)

    I love it. These just went on my radar.
    I've said it once before but I'll say it again (and will likely say it soon again), @Don L's pant game is on point!

    Just received my Leffot black graintrippers.
    Daddy likey.

    @tifosi @chrisefi I went home after dinner the other night and promptly ordered the last pair on Leffot's site. I thought they would go well with my ravello WT boots and cigar Indys...

    I've been wondering, what age range do you gentlemen fall under and what are your occupations. Some of you guys purchase these $500~800 shoes like they're candy. I'm in my twenties and had a job for a couple years and saved up before heading back to school. Although I would like to have extensive collection like you guys, I practice a strict one in one out rule.
