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.

Is this guide still relevant?

    His views on suede are not accepted here.

    Eff off, tassels are fine.
    Nobody ever bought two-tone "dress shoes". Two-tone shoes have always been casual shoes, and are still acceptable for that purpose.
    This man doesn't know what leather is, does he?
    Again, nobody has ever seriously had suede "dress shoes". Suede casual shoes are fine.
    A monkstrap is perfectly acceptable.
    Is this man really coming out against longwings and wing tips? Piss off.
    It depends on your intended usage as to whether cordovan is worth the cost, and sometimes a Dannite sole is appropriate, especially in cases of foul weather. Also, his shoe company description index appears to be lifted directly from Andy. Plagiarism is for assholes. EDIT - Yeah, it's stolen from the RTW Shoe Pyramid over there by John Cusey. http://www.askandyaboutclothes.com/T...seyOnShoes.htm

    Was it ever relevant? That's the proper question.

    ^ Possibly. Was it relevant the time it was written or any time after? Certainly not. This article offends me more than anything I've ever read on StyleForum. This guy is a complete cunt.

    You know, this is offensive to us, but for most men in America, I wouldn't mind them reading it. The basics are fine - probably get something from at least AE or higher quality, in a simple black or burgundy laceup. If more men took this basic advice, maybe SF wouldn't be such a narrow niche! Granted, it would also be boring - but I find that issue solves itself, as once you start learning about shoes you realize "hey, there's a whole world out there" and the issue becomes STOPPING and then your wife... but I digress.
