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.

    Ahh Sunday night ironing... Made only slightly more palatable by the presence of the cricket.

    Black polished is corrected grain. CG leather can be used to make up for worse leather an is generally though of as a less elegant choice. To be entirely truthful I'd steer clear.

    The rest of your question is a touch vague, but I'd go the 2nd shoe if I had to chose.

    New shoes (sort-of)! My bedroom slippers have well and truly bought it so today I bought some red fake denim-y espadrilles from Target. Not bad for $10 [​IMG]

    Not sure what last they're on ...

    Corrected grain has its place. FXH wrote a nice piece not too long back on its merits, but for mine, I want nothing to do with it. I think it's inelegant at best, and feral at worst. If high shine is required, I'd hope to invest sufficient time and effort to bring a gloss finish to calf, or earn enough to pay someone to do it. Otherwise, I like calf a lot more. If wet weather is a concern, then cordovan or a waxed calf is always a sound option.

    haha it sounds kind of gay, but I'm starting to fear my own strength...

    Edit: Squats are the bane of my wardrobe. 210kg squat = no hope in hell of wearing slim fits :(

    I personally don't like Derbies very much, but they are more forgiving when it comes to sizing. Maybe go for the derby considering you have wide feet?

    That's cooler than clothes, man. Any day of the week. At the end of the day, they're just clothes. Read that any way you like, they're just clothes. Enjoy the trip LachyZee! :)
