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.

    My advice is to get both as they have different characters. FYI I own both and can't be happier

    i still do think though, that "awesomesauce color" is actually the technical term for the color vintage rioja.

    Most G&G colours except aniline vary a little, this must be taken into consideration. It depends on both the leather batch and the antiquing. You shouldn’t use bespoke shoes (as in Gauss17’s picture above) as a colour reference, they are most often tweaked.

    The last looks bespoke to me. I don't see the welt well enough to say if it is handwelted.

    Notice that the bramhall doesn't have brogueing on the tongue while the first example does. Also 5 eyelets vs 6 eyelets.

    Yeah will go for that. I think the black suede one is more business attire only.
