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,

    Do the LHS's have decent arch support? Most loafers do not (and make my feet hurt as a result).

    i believe there is a steel shank in the LHS for some support. But they also have a low instep and for some that can be an issue...

    Opinions on the versatility of the black high boot? Leydon last/commando sole.

    Not the most versatile IMO - I have a pair of the boots from Blackbird that I use when I need a pair of black shoes but the weather is crappy (too often here in Chicago) but I'm finding that I don't wear black shoes/boots that often.

    A slight exaggeration to make a point: if you have 20 pairs of Aldens they might fill a niche; if you have 2 pairs there are others I would get first.

    I have the black wingtip boot, leydon last/commando pictures a few pages back. I think it goes wel with the usual suspects, but can't quite fit a worsted suit properly. Having said that, I have worn one with my navy interview suit and it didn't look too odd. But it's a bit chunky. tbh, I was contemplating the same boot, but will probably go with the Black indy instead due to fit.

    Came across these brogued chukkas from alden of carmel from a while ago, I think they would look awesome in whiskey shell, ravello shell, pretty much any kind of shell.

    Thoughts? Tom...? Bueller...Anyone?

    That's hot.
    For those mornings when you can't decide between a LW boot and a suede chukka! http://www.selectism.com/news/2011/0...ts/#more-79526
    Looks like it's trying too hard. Still, they could look great with the right (read: suitably funky) outfit.
    I am interested in these. http://www.theshoemart.com/cgi-bin/c...SHELL_CORDOVAN

    But they look a bit too plain, but they are the only ones in my size at this time. [​IMG]

    Plain as they may be, they're almost a staple. (I say "almost" only because they're bluchers, not oxfords, but that shouldn't stop anyone.) They'll complement nearly any outfit, and with their open lacing, they'd go well with denim, methinks. - K

    Thanks. Actually it was the Oxford I was interested in. Should be a bit sleeker.
