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.

    Cheers,

    Gentlemen: I have a pair of the unlined suede chukkas which I am overall very happy with: they're incredibly comfortable and the fit is spot on. My one minor gripe is that after a few hours of wearing them, the top back seam of the shoe starts irritating my heel, even with socks on. Has anyone else experienced this, and if so, is there anything that can be done to alleviate this issue?

    Guys, I have put an unworn color 8 NST from FransBoone on B&S for anyone interested. I recently received the same model with antique edge from Leffot in a better fitting size, I went from 10 D to 10.5 C (tts).

    I'm strongly considering Monday's Leffot preorder except a) I have no experience with Alden calf and b) I have furthermore no experience with unlined Alden calf. These are the black alpine grain dovers on a flex sole. Any guidance in terms of how these will age, how much stretch I'll end up experiencing?

    Appreciate any and all advice. Thanks!
