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.

    Cheers,

    I own and love a pair of dark brown suede chukkas on Forest that fit great.
    Yesterday I tried same last/size in an oxford but found it very (=too) tight around the instep.
    An oxford probably won't stretch much in that area as it's right on top of the seams.
    Any input on a last with higher instep? They didn't have a size up at the store, so I'll have to try that at a later point in time.

    I wanted to share a recent MTO of mine. I received them a while ago but due to bad weather didn't have a chance to wear them yet.
    Burgundy museum calf, Rain last. The eyelet style is debatable but I must say I really like it.

    Nice shoes but the eyelets make them a no for me. An Adelaide is such a dressy style and those eyelets are way too casual. But these aren't my shoes so my opinion means nothing.

    That's totally fine - I'm aware it's not for everyone. It was actually an accident but personally I really like how it turned out.

    Beautiful shoes. I love how they came out, eyelets might not be everyone's cup of tea but the shoes came out great.
