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.

    Looking great Robert!


    Don, Holy Crap that is an AMAZING combination!!!


    Looking absolutely fantastic in your Color #4 Wingtip Boots!!! Amazing!


    Looking good in your Banana Boots! :)


    Early morning Love!


    Hard to argue with this one!


    Looking good bro, we now know where all the Color #4 is stored... ;-)


    Looking great D in your NSTs! That would make a superb boot!


    Looking great Don! Great and classy shoe!


    Tankers are looking terrific!


    Yeah, those clearly show signs of try on. I personally would not keep them especially since they are a readily available model. The decision becomes much more difficult if that was a Whiskey Boot or something... ;-)

    Ha! Any suggestions on what I should do with these unacceptable blue boots? Should I also include my Navy Shell One-Piece belt with them for $1?

    I'm still up in the air on them--I think I may try deer bone treatment plus the mac method to see if I can reduce the creases; they cut me a $200 discount, so they feel like good value at $530.

    Thanks for your thoughts!

    The Dr. Jones boot is cool. There is something about the Indy on Plaza in #8.

    @MrDV - you always bring out the #4 to torment some fellows. Good work.

    The deer bone doesn't really reduce creases. At least not in my opinion. It will only reduce the bloom (white area) in the creases temporarily which only makes them less visible. The creases are set. They aren't going anywhere. If you are keeping the shoes, they creases(and bloom) will return the first time you bend your foot.

    Breck, unfortunately they were a one-off from Epaulet. It was from their previous "Ends for Friends" and was called "Kiss the Blarney". I believe only one or two pairs were available. They have another Ends for Friends sales event going on RIGHT NOW!
