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.

    well done RKD, those saddles definitely look a little more modern and a little more awesome than some of the alternatives out there. Don't ever let them go.

    alden will resole with whatever sole you ask them to.

    i had a pair of my cordovan indys originally with a leather bottom resoled with a commando sole.


    If I wanted to resole my 405s with the same sole found on the 404s, which model number do I quote my cobbler? Is it one of these?: http://www.vibram.us/repair/repair.a...ct=Composition

    RKD-looks great, man. It was in the 80s today in SoCal, made me wish I had those shoes to rock.

    Those look great. Try to embed the image instead of providing a link. Use the Embed This Image-Forum link on the right.

    I hate to see this thread slip to 2nd page so I wanted to move it back to page 1. My memo said Chukka color 8 today.

    Took the Cigar PTB's out for the first time in public. Great fit, love the look. They were 2nds and I couldn't see why, until I took them into the sun. One of the pieces of leather that has the eyelets is slightly lighter than the rest of the shoe. I'm guessing I can darken this with wax so it isn't as obvious.

    I've been thinking that the longwing in tan suede with a crepe sole would be a great Summer option. But this one would do! Who carries them?

    Patiently waiting to buy a pair of natural chromoexcel Indy's and some sort of Whisky's.

    PS to anyone who has black shell, is it worth it over black calf?
