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.

    Feeling the same way. Especially when both Leathersoul and Leffot have come out with similar makeups to Epaulet's rydenboot since that pre-order was finalized last February.

    I might be done with Alden (and move away from shell) and invest $7xx towards StC or Zonkey or Enzo Bonafe or whomever Skoak is about to bring in if Alden continues to be challenging to work with. I just had a 1.5 year delay on what was supposed to be a ravello wt boot that ended up being a cigar wt boot and that was paid in full upfront!. I will be very upset if the ryden boot is messed up as I've passed up a handful of nice black boot makeups - in both Alden and Viberg - as I've been on that preorder for nearly a year.

    It's pretty neat how the same boot in different leathers can give off completely different vibes.

    What's really crazy is that we can be here in one year and that boot might still not be ready.

    Also, I am not on that one but if you wanted out... you know who to call!

    Is Humus (Leffot - http://leffot.com/shop/index.php/shoes/alden/44912f-cooney-boot.html) the same as Chocolate (LS)? I can't find any pics online from anyone that has both to compare side by side.

    Very nice looking Bluchers KDubs!


    Those are two beautiful boots. It is indeed amazing how much the material can impact the look and feel of the boot. I find it equally amazing that the Last can essentially do the same thing!


    Wow, 11 months already? I just forget about makeups and am pleasantly surprised when they come in...
