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.

    Just tried them on for the first time when I took the trashes out. DEFINITELY not for the Finnish winter. Slippery as hell. Was like Bambi.

    On the whole issues of how it's holding up to wear and tear...
    I think some people just abuse their cloth/shoes more than others, if you treat it like shit, it'll most likely go to shit faster, and if you treat it with care, it will last longer.
    Yeah I know the quality is not the same as Margiela mainline, but if you treat it like it is, it'll probably hold up better. I don't know how much of the actual result is a measure of how much people are beating it up or the actual quality of the garments.

    The only issue mentioned so far is the rubber heel, that can be remedied by a $4 heel tap which also prolongs the overall life of the heel. It's still a pretty amazing deal considering the price of these side zips compared to the main lines imo.

    just took my side zips to get topy'd - I'll post pics when I get them back on Tuesday. Cobbler also said he would nail the rubber heel tip into the sole, preventing the glue from being an issue. Basically, it's like fixing any quality issues of the shoe for $25. He's only TOPYing the main part of the sole, not the heel. Hopefully that doesnt mess with the profile of the shoe - I guess I'll see when I get em back.

    Not a single person has expressed regret in buying them, even after the heel has fallen off (ok maybe one or so?), it's really not a deal breaker at all, considering the price



    +1 for me, 42 in CP and 43 in the side zips. Mine measure to around 12" outsole

    No heel issues here after about a week of wear. Also got mine topy'd on the main portion of the sole.

    Is this the first time most of you have owned a leather soled shoe?

    Looking to get some original MMM boots. Question for all those that owned the originals and tried on the H&M side-zips, did the H&M fit the same or you had to size up or down?

    The camel suit jacket has been nice and thick for the cold...good layering piece up here in Canada. Got a few compliments on it. The blue knit sweater with the over-sized sleeves does its job. Good beater and softer then I thought it be. The females dig it. Got them all marked down so I'm pretty satisfied with the haul.
