I also wish the site was faster but it's all a question of trade-offs : at a certain budget, you can either have a lot of content (high res images for a lot of products, maker info, etc...) or have a more bare, faster-loading page like so many of those e-shops expecting you to purchase an item with 1 or 2 photos.

We chose the former.

If we gain more scale and are able to afford faster, bigger and more expensive hosting servers, we will. Them we'll have all the content we believe our users deserve, and more speed.

I don't know though, there is a certain charm to purchasing something while annoyed.

Tried searching but couldn't find an answer - what is the thigh measurement on the Big John Regular Straight Cut denim? I can't seem to find any decent pair of jeans that isn't cut extremely small (for me) in the thigh/butt area. I need something like a 34" waist (usually a size 33 or even 32 or smaller depending on the brand), at least 12.75" or 13" thigh (most brands I've tried are between 11.5" and 12" or maybe 12.25", which is way too tight on me), and between a 8.25" and 8.5" leg opening. Hoping that the regular straight cut on the Big John isn't as slim as everything else I've tried.

Forgive me if this has been covered in this thread. I am looking for sizing help on the Buttero sneakers and boots available on the NMWA website. For reference, I measure a fairly true US 9D. I wear size 42 in Common Projects, 8.5D on the Alden Barrie Last. What size do you recommend for the sneakers or boots. TTS, or size down 1/2 or full size?

Thank you.

Thank you.

Look at the length, and width measurements given on the site, use that to compare with your current sneakers.

Edit: Forgot to mention this. Yes it has been covered, for Buttero, always size down.

Same.  This type of performance profile is shown to to steers away quite a bit of web business.  Would recommend just from a business perspective that be sped up (not just because I'm also annoyed by it.. but it has become axiomatic as best practice in web development for e-commerce that products, etc. display immediately.  Just offering a friendly two cents. :)

True that, and point taken.  I think you could have both...
