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,

    The LHS & George Boots were seconds & I'm glad I rolled the dice.


    Are the LHS the 9E? What size are the monk boots? When I saw those LHS my first thought was "wow, I better call shoemart quick!" I really need wait until next year before I buy any more shoes.

    The ravello LHS are 9E & the George boot is a 9.5D. The ravello LHS is a must and now I'm thinking I need a cigar LHS. As for the George boot I almost purchased them from Leffot a couple of months ago and I'm glad that I waited 'til now.

    Hello guys,

    I was wondering if you think it would be odd to pair Alden Indy 405 boots with dark brown A-2 type jackets. The alternative 403 would nicely match the brown color of my jacket, but I have already owned Indys in that color and have been thinking about ordering the 405 this time around. Side by side they aren't hideous and perhaps would look pretty good separated by chinos and buttondown.

    Advice is much appreciated.

    So it seems like the agreed upon way to waterproof 403/405s is Snoseal. But, as a new owner, how should I be treating and taking care of these on a regular basis?

    Meaning what kind of leather conditioner/cleaner, how often to polish, etc.?

    Thank you, sir. Can anyone tell me about the shoes in the penultimate pic? They have an unusual red color, and the natural 360° welt makes them look like Tricker's.

    Those whiskey PTBs above look very very similar to the ones I sold to Deltashell (which he sold again). Did you perchance get these from B&S? [​IMG] I remember spending time shining up those puppies.
