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.

    Ok, medallion sounds good.
    Any thoughts on creasing?
    Will the wingtips on the vamps of the budapest oxford allow for more creasing than the captoes?

    Instead of both...I would suggest you consider the Old English II...on the U last...but add a medallion. You can also remove the V tip apron design [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Between these two models which one would be the most versatile?
    Which ones would crease the lease? (I'm assuming the captoes but I'd like to hear from
    people with experience with the budapests)
    Which color to get them in? (I'm trying to get them in as similar a shade as the westons that are in my avatar)

    I like the look of the budapest oxfords better but only by a little bit.


    Any thoughts or suggestions?

    OP to my eye 6125 dark cognac with Italian polish or their burgundy cordo is closest to the Westons.

    6125 is the most verstile Vass colour IMO. It's a dark dark red, just the right colour balance so the shoes look great without stealing the show ..

    I kind of like the V tip apron, but much prefer it straight.

    Thanks for all your input guys.
    I've decided on the stock Old English II on the U last in Oxblood.
    Only modification is a stitched throat opening instead of that weird
    piece of leather at the bottom of the eyelets on the stock Old English II

    Any objections?
