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,

    OK - a reset of the new Tobacco LWB's from JCrew:
    [​IMG]
    The first pair I picked up during the 30% off window had a large stain in the leather on the right toe. I called JCrew and asked if I could use some Saphir to see if it was just some stain from the factory or something else, and they immediately sent a replacement instead. They offered overnight, but I declined - I wasn't in THAT big a rush and it is only a couple days from Lynchburg to my house anyway. Awesome service!

    Shoes feel just amazing - 11.5D in Barrie is a terrific match for me. Will wait to decide, but it might even be a better fit than the Trubalance. Happy boy today...

    anyone go down 1 full size down on the modified last? 1 size down from true to size? so 12D in plaza, 11.5D barrie, 11 modified? or is 1 down from tts too ambitious? ive read some sizing advice that recommends sizing down atleast 1/2 from brannock

    ive regrettably had to downgrade you to (ditz +), down from (unsure -) for the teetering you have displayed. i worry that youll die an old maid, without a pair of ravello nst boots, even, should you continue on this reckless path

    Try your barrie size, 1 down will not work. I have 1/2 down and tts, I prefer the latter.

    I wear my Barrie size on the Modified, so a 1/2 size down for me.
