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 may need to get some plastic slipper to lay around as distraction... although my cats seem more interested in the laces than anything.

    Very nice Mr. V. St. James in Polo?

    I am tempted by the new Cherry wholecut at Skoak.

    I did not do as well as @justonemore , but, i must thank him for referring me to this G&G sale and for not buying this nice pair of Cambridge (Lol):


    [​IMG]

    As @MrVenneri once said: Wearing a pair of G&G shoes is like wearing a wet suit, and, their sleekness had prevented me from buying any G&G shoes so far because I was afraid they would be too tight for my feet. But, I am actually pleasantly surprised by how roomy the DG70 last feels despite its sleekness.

    So, thank you for the tip @justonemore . And also a special word of appreciation for Nick who is really nice, very patient and most helpful.

    I would say 1/2 is probably Edward Green.

    I would devote a special percentage to John Lobb.

    I think a small portion would have to be St Crispins.

    Then there would about a third for a number of brands not considered Top Tier but which I just tend to prefer.

    Oh, did I mention the third for brands I have yet to try?

    Oh, and I am thinking its about time to try something bespoke.


    Oops, I think I need a bigger pie. LOL

    At this point I have her convinced that they give them away free as door prizes.

    Espresso looks fantastic. Even in the light they look almost black with only hints of brown.
