Bed:Stu believes in tweaking the classics. Case in point the Corning oxford. Sure, the silhouette, seaming, perforations, and even top lacing is all there, but theres just enough textural difference between this and your Dads oxford to really make it modern. Major distressing on the fine leather upper shows a new mood, as does the ruggedly stitched leather outsole. Its the timeless shoe whose time is now.
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.
