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.

    Looking to buy some cigar shell PTBs (Barrie) in size 11, but can't seem to locate them through the usual suspects... hate that I missed out on the IRR sale from shoemart. Had the chance and waited a day too long to pull the trigger.

    Uncontrol acts a bit like an androgynous wannabe version of Jet at times.

    I guess I need a bit of clarification. Are you saying Uncontrol is:

    *Androgynous and he/she's a Jet wannabe; or
    *He's a Jet wannabe and Jet is androgynous (does that mean the Persian Bro stuff is all a beard ?)


    Confusing! Makes me long for the simpler days when I used to get annoyed at some guy asking how the Trubalance last will accomodate his bone spurs.

    I pre-ordered the wingtip in snuff suede, can't wait (as well as the chromexcel Jumper). I've never done this before, how the hell do you guys cope with the waiting game???[​IMG]

    I put in the same order. Next thing you'll say is you ordered them in 10.5 EE. [​IMG]

    what do you guys think of this boot?
    don't know much about it.
    available to me in my size from shoemart for a pretty nice price.
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    these are the only photos I could find - looks to be a used pair from a Japanese website
    Modified last


    I like the way they look, they remind me of the #8 boots that they sell at J. Crew. I don't see them on the Shoe Mart website, though, are they on the irregulars list for your size?

    Rob, I have both of those on order also. Some of of just have to wait because of our odd size that is not stocked. I am still waiting for my blue suede PTB and longwings from a september order.

    Yes
    They send me the list every month and they are always on there.
    It makes me crazy b/c I really like the look of the photo they send, but feel they may look too dressy for my tastes when I get them in my hand.
    They remind me a bit of the Cordovan Jumper boots I have seen.
    If I don't kop, it'll make me mental when they fail to show up one month in the monthly offering from shoebuy.
    Looking for more info on the modified last
    They are one half size larger than my Indy's. So, essentially TTS on the modified last....perhaps even .5 smaller than TTS. My indys are almost one size down and a stretch from the local cobbler.

    You couldn't have picked two better shoes with which to start.

    they sound like seconds, which for the price could be a great deal. i deal with joe the owner of shoemart they have a great return policy, if they don't work send them back.

    From what I have heard, the Modified last runs pretty big. It's the second loosest fitting last that Alden makes, so if these are a half-size larger than your Indys, there's a good chance that they will be too big for you.

    +1. Both Cordovan, one is a LW, the other is a rare color. Two different styles. Well done

    Very nice Chris! What color are those? I'm guessing earth, but could be the tobacco. I just pulled the trigger on the Winn Perry little tanks in tobacco and I am awaiting delivery this week.

    ^ Yeah, very nice for sure. I'd be interested to know where they're from. The Rough Roy (from Context) is very similar, but has a crepe sole (which I'm not into).

    It looks like th LS Pitt boot, but I could be wrong. The sole on this model adds a nice touch of class over the crepe.

    Rob, Mr K. - Same with me. I cannot wear stocked shoes (A width), and so I have to pre-order. Unfortunately, my last pre-order in March 2010 got lost and LSW discovered this in February and so now I'm waiting another 6-9 months.....[​IMG]

    LS calls them brown, I believe it is the same as Winn Perry earth.
