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.

    I know Carmel rent isn't cheap... but these prices are ridiculous. :uhoh:

    Probably best to let the deep-pocketed locals buy these than an online community with a penchant for getting a good deal.

    Gotta price accordingly to other US resellers, especially Barney's. but then I would just wait for year end clearance or get real bespoke.

    I know...no point complaining. At least, there are some more reasonable options available.

    Odd, most of these manufactures have set prices that their retailers have to follow.

    Now this makes more sense.

    Although I just paid $150 for lasted shoe trees from Leffot.

    Maybe the cost of their lasted shoe trees just went up as well.

    Wow, I love how I can walk in and look around. Very nice. It is only missing the wonderful aroma of fine leather.

    Unfortunately all I can offer are my thanks. These arrived this morning from Barney's. They are my first pair of G&G. I was in the market for one more nice pair of brown shoes and these seem to fit the bill quite nicely.
