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.

    I saw this a couple days ago. There is AE written on the sole. They are odd though.

    To be clear, I would NOT wear those bad boys. They are inherently too abominable to overcome.

    Ha! I agree, which is why I was a little puzzled by your response. I DO, however, really like the black shell Dalton's that one of our brethren MTOed. Shiny, but not overly so...

    way to be heads up and MTO a web gem model. the walnut version looks great, the chocolate is interesting… very dark

    Did you get them at the web gem cost or the usual MTO cost for calf shoes?

    Thanks fellas!

    Okay so I looked them over in more detail and the walnut and dark chocolate calf shoes are definitely good to go. The Natty CXL, on the other hand, I'm more iffy on but let me know what you guys think (the issues aren't as bad as Kahuna's).

    I don't think the loose stitching is terrible, but that's pretty uneven lacing. I have that on my regular MacNeils and I didn't think it would bother me, but it is slowly starting to bug me more and more. Probably a result of this thread!
