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.

    My god that's terrible. It looks like two completely different welts. And that took a lot of balls for the salesman to Say he "Noticed a color difference." Good thing you can return them.

    Wow, these look like the bomb-diggity. Congrats on the pickup! I'm not sure I can pull off the look myself but they are sweet.

    Thanks! I'd been looking at the shell version for quite sometime, too, Mike. When I saw this one on Plaza I decided it was too good to pass up. Do you happen to know if the Brick + Mortar LWB in dark brown "Regina Calf" is the same as this leather (TSM calls this one a soft, tumbled scotch grain)? I almost ordered that LWB from Yenni too.

    Thanks! This is my third or fourth monk strap shoe, including one I had in college many years ago, and I honestly think they're not hard to pull off at all. Always enjoy seeing someone wearing a pair of monk straps!

    Shit...Ain't nothing "Poor" about them.

    In my opinion they scream punk rock scene, 1980s London, Dr. martens Ass - Kickers. And that is exactly the look I was drawn to since they were introduced. So while Rydan and his gang of merry men are out there kicking shit with there new and improved Pitt Boot, I'm gonna be kicking ass with mine.

    The RydanFan boot is more military, officer vibe with the, no pun intended, commando sole. I was going for more of a Fight the Power, question authority look. Not to mention the crepe is, IMO, slightly more comfortable than the commando sole.

    But I'm glad you got in on them:)

    That is just f--ing crap! This is what I was talking about the other day. Just no excuse for this type of stuff to make it out of Alden's doors! I feel vindicated and saddened at the same time.

    One looks like it has a flat welt, while the other seems to have a storm welt. Bizarre?!

    I cracked and ordered a pair. No point in waiting to see if the Pitt boot comes around again.
