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.

    That explains a lot. I was looking at the sole and thinking hmmm, I think they could use some work. Congrats on them, I am sure they will look awesome in the end.

    Your pics look great! How would you rate Meermin's offering, with regard to shell quality, construction, and finishing?

    wklq76a, you get what you pay for, the shell is very dry, very average. But for the price I paid for them, decent.

    Lovely.

    Are these manufactured by Allen Edmonds for Wolverine? I remember such claim was made regarding the 721 LTD.

    Tough to show the full depth of the color but Tricker's Mogano Cordovan Chukkas today. The color is a deep brown/eggplant in person
