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.

    Always appreciate the words Uncle. Thanks. And while I have your attention, let me add my voice to the chorus of those who have missed your contributions to this thread. Really nice to see you posting again.

    How do Alden Indy's fit? I'm a 9D in RW blacksmiths and Iron Rangers, should I stick to 9D with Alden Indy's??

    There's a bit of a backstory on these. The original order was for a pair of Ravello wingtip boots in the same makeup from Alden Madison preordered back in June 2014, but due to problems from the factory properly allocating the Ravello, they ran out of Ravello shells. The factory supplied Cigar as a consolation, and those who wanted to change their orders could change to Cigar versions of the same makeup. I believe these are the first Cigar Wingtips being sent as a result.

    The odd thing about this is how the cigar lwb snuck in. After the Ravello fiasco, they allowed people to switch to this cigar boot at a discount. Then, they had a seperate order for cigar lwb. Those arrived months ago. You'd figure these boots should have come first. Just a bit confusing to me.

    After an unsuccessful run at the lined LHS, it might be time to give the BB Unlined LHS a try for size...[​IMG]

    Is it the Van last? If not how does it compare? I feel kind of lucky the Van seems to work for me, in suede at least. Slightly tight across my left foot but I know it will break in and loosen up. Love the color 8 LHS from BB too...

    Maiden voyage of my Epaulet Innsbruck LWB, Anonymism socks & JCrew corduroys. Dig the commando sole. Purchased these to get me through the winter until my color 8 LWB with antique edge on commando arrives from Adam, who rocks. I cannot wait for that model to come in, but these will do for now.

    It was originally a Ravello SWB or the WTB. You were then given the option to switch to a Cigar SWB or WTB. Not really a fiasco and not really a discount - free trees.
