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.

    Quick! BRG Isham before Stevent kops it! :)

    Isham (MH71) >> Dover, IMO.

    After giving it some thought I'm sort of torn. With just one Dover it's certainly been difficult to determine the next split toe either Isham, St Crispins, or another Dover. But I can certainly feel the Isham tugging at me.

    Agree, pretty tough choice. Some days just when I think I have made up my mind, I wake up the next thinking something else.

    I think a lot of us have that problem. I debate the most about adding new models or new colorways/last choices on existing models.

    You have a Thorpe on the way. Might help to wait until after you try it on and like the fit / look. Otherwise, Thorpe is very similar to Isham so maybe St. Crispin will give you variety if that's what you crave. I feel like most people have a favorite one way or the other though. You know which way I lean :D

    That's pretty good advice and your probably right about waiting. Unfortunately the St James Kudu wasn't going to be around that long so I already committed to at least a second on that last without waiting.

    However in this case I'm still undecided and I see no reason to make a hasty decision on this particular one at this point in time.

    I am down for this, but suspect I will need "F" width.

    Very nice, Rothschild's have always looked real good to me.

    I was beginning to wonder when they would start rolling in for you.


    What is it, maybe one per week now until the end of the year? LOL
