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.

    Cheers,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    BIzarre. I just came across this very same note at dictionary.com, some 5 minutes before seeing your post. Synchronicity? Coincidence? Ahh in the interests of contribution I will say that I was ignorant of the correct usage of the verb. I now shall never forget. Not (directly) sartorial terminology, but I often notice people using the word nauseous incorrectly: that is, they seem to be invoking the word when what they really mean is nauseated. As: Those pierced Berlutis make me nauseous. Correct: Oy, those nauseous pierced Berlutis. Patrick

    I have always felt that the use of the term 'Goodyear Welted' to describe production line shoes such as Alden, Allen Edmonds and the UK factories is, if not technically wrong, at least disengenuous. True 'Goodyear Welted' footwear involves the use of a cut and turned feather from the insole, not a glued-on piece of plastic, to serve as the anchor of the construction. While there might be very little practical difference between the two methods, the properly seperated use of the terms 'Welted and 'Goodyear Welted' would, at least, allow the consumer to understand that much more effort (and typically, better insole quality) went into the 'Goodyear Welted' shoe.
