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,

    [​IMG] you found all those beautiful, mint condition, top line, SM shoes - in your size!!- at thrift shops in SF in the past couple of months!! You must have a horseshoe up your a$$ - pardon my french. They are beautiful shoes. Did they come from the same owner or something?

    I hate Mantellassi shoes. Especially those made for Borrelli. There, I've said it [​IMG] .
    Uncomfortable as hell; to a point where you wonder if they were made to go on a display mannequin that won't care one way or another. The leather soles are stiffer than Mahmoud Ahmadinejad @ a Salute to Israel Parade. In that they simply wouldn't bend. Priced higher than either EG or JL shoes.
    Here's one pair of wingtips that seems decent all-around ( I've seen this particular model in person ) being offered by our snappy friend from Cambridge. He claims their original retail was over $1800.


    I think he's asking too much. He didn't get any bids the last time around.
    I'll buy them for $400.[​IMG]

    By the way. Do all Borrelli shoes have the stamp underneath the soles? Does the lack of such mean it's a lower line shoe?
