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.

    Fujibana (ie MK's Dover) has a round toe last, probably closer to EG202 or GG06 (and not as sharp as DG70). There is also a square toe version of the same last, similar to EG606.

    @nutcracker

    Thanks for all the information. Took some time to go through all pages. Keep up the great work!

    Also, do you by an chance know what shoes were being shined in the Garrastyle shoe shine video back in page 40 (I think) by Mr. Hasegawa?

    Thanks!
    Honestly, I have no idea what those shoes are. If you dig that video, you should check this one out too.

    This promotional video was produced by GUCCI and shows Hasegawa san (Brift H) polishing a pair of their horsebit loafers from the 1980's.

    Yeah, I was there the other day and the colour selection is pretty comprehensive - violet polish, anyone? (actually, i was thinking that this might be a really interesting accent colour to use on my smoke grey boots...)

    They do have creams in several shades of green, but unfortunately not for wax polish. I think Saphir makes one in D.Green.
