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.

    Agreed. Andy as far as GY welted RTW goes (I.e. not including vass, st. C, or others), JLP blows everything else out of the water. No way is Edward Green's finishing as fine as this.

    The austerity is the Widmer on the 8695 last but I don't recall the color.

    Worn no more than 2 times... :rolleyes:

    The owner must have worn the crap out of them the 2 times he wore them.

    I was thinking the same thing. How do you get that much wear on the waist in 2 wears unless you're walking in gravel for 2 days straight?

    Walking in Manhattan for 2 days would probably do that. Though the guy is in CA

    ^^^Nice collection!

    On another note: I've seen the 9795 last noted as both "9795" and "9795R". Anyone knows what difference, if any, is hidden behind the "R"?

    I think that an S or an R behind any last number refers to Sale and Rejects, respectively.

    I am afraid I have to disagree. I am not referring to the R or S stamps in red that signify rejects or sale shoes. Rather I am talking about when the last number written in handwriting on the lining includes an R - "9795R".

    Nope, thats not it either. I've seen "9795R" many times with the standard original leather soles too.
