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.

    Falke do have great socks I used Falke for 2 years but then I went over to Pantherella. I think Pantherella for me are much more comfortable and have more to choose of.

    Yes, choice is a problem with Falke. German you see?

    All practicality and technology, just no flair.

    Strange that you moved from falke to Panthas, I went the other way.

    I developed an allergy to nylons and synthetics, you would not believe how many top clothing brands I had to give up.

    You would also not believe how many low end cheap brands became viable options, it was one heck of an excercise.

    Anyway, Pantharellas had to go because it became difficult to determine exactly which styles did or did not contain synthetics.

    "All practicality and technology, just no flair." Hey, you just described 93,7% of the Swedish population! :stirpot: Just kidding, we're all about flash and flair. :)

    I moved away from Bresciani and Pantha because I like the durability of Falke better. I especially like their heavy wool socks. Have not found a more durable wool sock than Falke. But I agree they do lack a bit of sex appeal. But I would prefer navy langweilig Deutsch Socken before polka dotted cherry/violet striped see through socks any day of the week. Call me Swedish.

    I need to tell everyone something which will probably bore everyone, but hey, it excites the crap out of me.

    I have always been forced to buy G&G which are either too narrow or too long because nobody ever stocks shoes in a wide fitting these days.

    Anyway, Nik came to my rescue and he might have a pair or two of exactly the G&G shoes I have been looking for from places like Leffot et al IN MY BIG FOOT SIZE!!

    Now, if somebody could please describe to me how exciting that really is because I cannot find the words.

    To move back to the topic: I was told a couple of weeks back that the G&G staff is up to a full team now so lead times should improve. Might be old news for you guys... Also, new larger premises are being negotiated and also...a new factory, for a new product line. Don't know if that is official though so can't go into that further. :)
