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

    Which of these do you have experience with? Can you recommend any particular brands/models?

    I wish I had experience with them...

    But, from what I had done some research; I would recommend the Lazzeri Handmade Shoes section; and the Rogani...

    And the Giogrio Fornasiero shoes. Extremely well made.

    Why does Lorenzi require a password to see their fall collection? Bizarre.

    I saw these shoes, they appear to be very well made; fine leather as well.

    Lorenzo Banfi retail pricing tends to be on an optimistic side. This particular style runs $410. I've tried them on, and while certainly comfy there's frankly nothing special about'em. But then I don't think much of Magli Platinum line either, let alone their $600 going price. I'd advise taking your money elsewhere.
