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.

    Highly suggest heading back and snatching up a few more. I also got a couple pairs of comfy J Crew brand merino wool knit socks for $5 each.

    Some of the Anonymous Ism socks from JCrew is a bit suspect since they are made from polyester and some other synthetic material.

    I didn't have this experience with the socks from East Dane though.

    +1, enjoy these sir! Frans has to send everything to the U.S. via air, so it comes very quick. It's also helped by the fact that night here is day there, so if you order after work, he walks in and processes the order immediately. :)

    I ordered my Boots from him at like 6pm Sunday night and was amazed to have them on Tuesday!

    Chris, looking good in your Boots! I hope that you enjoy them! Interesting makeup as most of these are on the Grant.



    Sk8, these are terrific. Enjoy them sir!

    walds - TheBureauBelfast has 403 indys with commando soles and brown eyelets - a few sizes left. I have the innsbruck indys and love them. I waited and searched for 403s with commando soles for over a year and finally pre-ordered the innsbrucks and got them ~ 6 months ago. I have never received so many compliments from women as I get in the 403s - go figure?

    Agree completely and I did end up getting a suede boot with it and love it...for a casual makeup it is comfortable as can be...I am going to toy with a few ways to make the profile look more appealing.

    So so so good! I just mentioned, like two days ago, how much I like these shoes. I was doing good resisting but here you are twisting my arm.


    The crepe sole is great! I have two pairs with it. One of them being about the biggest juxtaposition I can think of; color 8 tanker boot on crepe. Sounds weird on paper but I think it works.
    I think the sole goes perfectly with the rest of that Frans Boone makeup.
    Viva la crepe!


    Great looking LWB!


    Are those the same ones you wore to dinner the other night? I didn't get a chance to check them out at the time.

    The Bureau Belfast doesn't have my size available. It's a shame because I really like the 360 welt on their model. I am going with the LS Ultimate Indy. LS has my size available in the next run. They should available by the end of the year, possibly sooner per Will at LS. Good things come to those who wait :)

    Recently I bought a different pair from them where they had neglected to indicate the last in the website description. A two-minute phone call was all it took to get the info.

    I would give them a call and as someone said before, ask for Ed or Joe. I found this with a boot purchase I made, it was so new to TSM that they had not written up the product description yet.

    On another note, I like them!
