Even the basic loafer becomes a work of art in the hands of master Italian artisans and the inspired imagination of Donald J Pliner. The Lore2 loafer elevates a wardrobe staple to a distinctive new standard. The gently distressed leather makes this shoe feel like an old favorite youve loved for years, even on the first wearing. A full leather lining gains character with time and is so comfortable, wearing socks is strictly an option. This shoe slips on easily and fits great thanks to a discrete elastic side-gore. A distinctive bit-and-leather detailing on the vamp adds even more visual interest and a lightweight rubber lug sole ensures positive traction at every turn.
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.
