1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Gerry! No! If you break, after being so happy with your shoe collection, what chance do the rest of us have?

    It is this thread, the temptations it mentions can be hard to ignore...My fault for bring up suede boots?

    All the nay sayers can nod knowingly now ...


    Yes, Pink Socks, it was all your fault - after all, you held a gun to my head and made me press the 'Buy' button [​IMG]

    I'm sure you guys have stronger wills!

    For what it's worth, I'm still very very happy with the shoes I have and definitely don't need these to fill in any holes in the collection, that's for sure - I still believe that the other shoes I have can pretty much cover any situation I'm likely to be in.



    Only because you asked nicely [​IMG] I got a pair of C&J Chilterns - snuff suede chukkas on a Dainite sole. The Florsheim dark brown suede chukkas I currently have are too close to the Tetbury. I'll have two different coloured chukkas and three colours of C&J suede - snuff, expresso and tobacco all on different lasts.

    ^^ My Chemist Retail Group has something to do with that. The Perfume Connection is stale. They do not offer anything that are not being offered by the pharmacies or any of the department stores at all.

    Not sure if I have already mentioned this, but I am off to the US West Coast next week; LA, Vegas and SF. Any tips or suggestions of things I should be on the look out for?

    I am all over the shooting range in Vegas where $100 and a driver license will rent you an AK47 and a clip of ammo :)

    It's a shame you can't go to NYC. That place is amazing.

    Is it worth seeing the guys at P.Johnson if I'm only in Melbourne for 3 days?

    Also, "business casual" dress codes can go die. It's either business, or casual.

    Why not? The only thing you'll need to think about is how you'll do the fitting once anything you order is ready. I'd give Tom and Jen a buzz.
