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.

    Also - corthays run long and very narrow.

    I've been to their shop... some cool bespoke pieces. Not much on hand stock for rtw. NAMOR - nail down sizing first...

    You are going to buy more after being heavily criticized by your fellow Forumites for those monks?

    Repost, couldn't find the old thread, maybe it was lost in some crash.

    Two pairs of Corthays model Arca; black with purple piping and lie-de-vin (a sort of burgundy with paler highlights and a hint of blue). As you can see from the second example Corthay can prepare amazing custom patinas that only grow more beautiful with age.

    What exactly do you mean by too blobby? Corthay are some of the sleekest shoes out there.
