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.

    About a month ago when LS was taking deposits for the next run on these I sent them an email and got on the list. Two days later they told me somebody backed out from the previous run and my size was available, so I snatched them up.
    Now, I need to get some Nano spray on these so I can wear them. They've been in the box for close to a month.


    Any where in Toronto where I can get some Nano?

    No spoiler for these as they becoming my favorite boots. Congrats. We now have two LS Choco Tankers in T.O lol I got my Nano at Leatherfoot (Yorkville). They might have run out and maybe we can order from EP or Leffot and split shipping, etc..

    Whoa. That Ravello Monk Strap Wingtip is a super interesting makeup. A double monk Ravello would be amazing.

    Those are mine!

    However I wore them once, the previous owner before me however was not too kind. Still a great looking pair though!

    I wouldn't pay a big premium for any shoe. There are waaaaay too many amazing options to choose from.

    Granted I'm in the less than 15 Alden and Carmina camp so perhaps my perspective will change with time.

    Is there such a thing as too many #8 boots? Left to right: Jcrew PCT on Barrie, Leffot Tankers on Barrie, Frans Boone Dr Jones on Plaza, and J Gilbert wingtips on Plaza. Have a great Saturday!

    Mike,
    Out of curiosity, have you worn those out of the house yet? I Mac'd mine and they are ready to roll, but I haven't taken them out for a full day yet.

    Thank You Sir!

    It has taken time and effort to build it...and, I still have several models on the way...

    Yes, the 922 model to be exact...

    Thanks a million Shawn.

    Thanks Gentlemen,

    When I have the itch to procure a new pair, sometimes what I will do is go on a polishing/buffing spree.

    That usually takes care of the urge...momentarily at least.

    I was so close to ordering the Leffot Naval Boot yesterday, and even had some extra cash to boot, but I have too many pokers in the fire...

    Have a Blessed Weekend!

    Does anyone make a cigar or ravello alt wien shoe, rather than a boot? Particularly on Barrie?
