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.

    thanks for the kind words gentlemen.
    henry, i don't know that one. i wouldn't google it, that'd be cheating.
    great find, the shoes have a great patina. i would send them to alden for a restoration, but ask them not to refinish the shell. you would have the best of both worlds, new feeling shoes with an awesome patina.
    great shoes and marcolianis Uncle Mac.

    So this is NOT my experience on #8, my shoes were dyed including of course the stitching, bummer. Whiskey Recraft guys? What's up? So do they ruin the contrast hand stitched vamp on LHS, NST, and others Whiskey, Ravello, Cigar. Who actually have sent a Rare Shell Cordovan back for Recraft and your experience? Thanks ...

    seems like a good plan.
    email them ahead of time. let them know your expectations, they should be able to meet your requests.
    @chipshot i haven't sent exotics for recraft.

    Your new Cigars are looking terrific. I can't wait to get mine out into the wild!


    Your Whiskey LHSes are looking absolutely stunning. They have a great shade to them and nice shine. Thanks for sharing!


    Looking good in the king of kings.


    Mac, those Color 8 NSTs are looking absolutely superb. They have an amazing shade to them. They go well with your argyles.


    Sub, you are looking good. I will admit that that is not my favorite style, but we all have different taste profiles. I am glad that you are enjoying them and they are comfortable.


    Don, you are looking rather comfy. I love my Snuff LHSes.


    The first of several great Tassel Loafers over the past two days. They look superb my friend. They have a nice shade and shine on them.


    Your Jeep must be enjoying your CXL Plaza Boots. Nice pairing with the socks and denim.


    Prof, looking great in your BB #8 Tassels. They are looking very good and you look very comfortable today.


    Both are looking very good Henry! I hope that you had a good day and night.


    I love the Whiskey Indy. Yours are looking superb DV.


    This is a beautiful model and you are fortunate to have them as they are likely no longer going to be made. They have a nice character and patina to them. I would vote brush them vigorously to get them cleaned up some and add moisture to the creasing and enjoy them for the time being and then send them back for a restore.


    Your PCTs are looking very good!


    Don, your Tassels are looking great! I think people are trying to remind me of the fact that I am lacking the rear foxing on mine!!! :)


    Just beautiful. THey are a amazing color Zip. Looking great! I need to get mine out again...


    Killing it again DV!


    Loving the Whiskey NSTs my friend! I prefer the Aberdeen on the NST though, but they still look great!


    Hey look! An Aberdeen NST! Looking great Mac! I love this shape with the NST model. They are looking great with a beautiful shine!


    Looking good in both your PCT boots!


    Great indys and pairing!


    Looking good in your BrasSnuff LWBs!


    Your Madison NSTs are taking good care of you. They have a great shade of Color 8 on them!


    Your LS Brown CXL Tankers are looking great Andy! Hope that you enjoyed the fall day!

    -Mike
