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.

    ^cop W+H service boots (best choice) or Wolvie 1000mi (less expensive alternative)
    I thought about those before. Can I wear them with the top open + my jeans tucked into them?

    I think you could with the W+H moreso than the Wolverine's

    (I need to pick up a pair of brown W+H's, I need a distressed brown boot in my life)

    btw: no hate but those Superdry's are fug (so is everything I've ever seen by them fwiw)

    only with the Wings+Horns.

    Honestly though Gray Suede is your best option IMO especially if you're planning to tuck.

    Anyway Fuji is repping those All Saints boots so maybe you should check them out.

    Is that a real dog, Moo? (0)

    I wouldn't let my dogs anywhere near my shoes. Or anything I value for that matter. Untrained German shepherds. :/

    Why? Is it cause raw denim transitions better the texture of suede rather than shiny leather?

    I wouldn't tuck with any of your choices. Tuck looks best with higher boots and you want nothing higher than ankle boots, tucked W+H does not look good

    I'm not lookin for a full on tuck... just something like this, unless this looks bad (jean openings look a little too big to me, mine are narrower) [​IMG]

    My pair of CP boots was super slippery the first 3-4 times I wore them but they're a little more normal now. Almost fell down a staircase.

    What type of Alden is the third from the right and do you know what type of leather it is? The reddish brown color/patina is nice.

    Every time I see a picture the color is different. Do you think the color in this picture is close to real life accurate?
