1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    So I'm in no rush, but is there anywhere I can get myself a pair of Whiskey Longwings for around $400 new? Or is this absolutely absurd.

    Seriously. I think irregulars can be had for around $400. But if you're talking about normal sizes first quality....forget about it.

    My first pair of Aldens were New whiskeys for 425 on ebay.

    Just out of curiosity, how much do they go for on B&S/ ebay usually? I'm talking uncreased, no wear on the soles.

    If its a cigar, ravello, or whiskey its pretty much retail. If you're lucky and wait and wait, maybe you'll get em for a few bucks less, but highly unlikely.

    I recently purchased some used 975s. I noticed on my right pair on the outer side where the shoe flexes that there is a slight tear beginning. Can this be fixed and should I be concerned. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Sigh. Why do so many use Imageshack? They don't work!

    I don't see a tear in these pics. If in doubt use a horsehair brush on the area in question. Cordovan is quite resilient.

    In the first picture, it is to the right of where the shoe is flexed. The tear is very small but none the less a tear. Can I prevent it from getting larger and can I fill it in or anything?
