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.

    Sorry to see that.

    I always thought the tabs were more for look than function anyway.

    Lurv the loafers! Perfect use of hatch grain and the handstitched detailing brings a level of craftsmenship to them. Quite an elegant casual shoe.

    Pull tabs is all function not looks. the only look/design part is its location and how it is setup; EG/G&G's pull tab is designed not to catch on pants like say, RM William or Carmina's pull tab.

    Just arrived. Phone camera doesn't do them justice. Not quite med-techs collection, but these are the best looking boots I've ever seen in person.

    joshaudowen, both pairs are stunning and they'll look better after some wear and a few polishes. My motto is quality over quantity, afford what you can, and wear the shoes. Leather looks better after some wear with creases and scuffs and knowing the man behind has taken care of them with a polish like ethandesu.

    Did polish the toes in black. Or would it be nicer with the same color then black?
