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'm not sure how I feel about the scalloped edges on the Connaught, actually.

    Funny, I had concerns about the stitching on the Hanly. I was afraid the "wing" stitching would get lost amid the creasing.

    Wait, you smell that?
    Nice shoes. But they only have a size 7 left. Do you know what last it is on?
    I'm not sure what last the Cleveland's is on the Le-botte web site, it could either be 337 or 350, but since the 7 is a UK size, perhaps it could still fit?

    Austerity brogue -- so called because it has no broguing.

    Aubercy? Walked by their store on the rue de Luynes today. Some very handsome models, although some are a little "Daehn", if you get what I mean.

    Oui RJ, Aubercy. I know exactly what you mean about some of their styles that veer of course, this one really seems to speak to me, though.

    Discontinued by Martegani, or by Franco's? I know Franco's is streamlining its shoe offerings, so you might be able to source it elsewhere.

    That's my shoe. I contacted Ron Rider when he was still at Franco's and asked about the possibility of doing as a special order a wing-tip adelaide with twin-needle stitching forming the pattern elements. (I had previously asked Gravati if they would do it, and they said no. I got the idea originally from a Mantellassi shoe that was somewhat similar.) He liked the idea well enough that he ordered it for stock in brown and black. I liked the idea well enough that I commissioned a variation of the design as a bespoke shoe from Tony Gaziano. He liked the idea well enough that one of the shoes in his RTW lineup has a design that's a variation of the one that I commissioned.

    In any event, Martegani doesn't discontinue models like some manufacturers do. If a retailer wants that shoe, they will make it. If no retailer wants it, they will not. It's a shame that Franco's isn't ordering more -- it's a nice shoe.
