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.

    i wonder how much they in total.

    Difficult to say since he said he bought them over a number of years and it's not clear how many pairs (other than obviously the alligator Lobbs and the Koronya) are MTO/bespoke. At present prices for JLs and EGs, there would definitely be over $40,000 worth of shoes there (the alligator Lobbs alone would be $3,000+, I believe). Perhaps the best answer comes from the newsreel in Citizen Kane: "Xanadu, stately home of Charles Foster Kane! Cost, no one can say."

    Wow. How'd I miss this... I actually bought a pair of EG dovers from him way back when. He probably replaced them with some JL's judging by the collection. As I recall, I believe he was somehow acquainted with aportnoy...perhaps a long lost cousin.

    Sure, it's a nice cabinet with some pretty shoes, neatly organized and displayed. As regards aportnoy, I'm not sure anyone but Andrew can fully fathom the extent of his collection, and perhaps it is difficult even for him. I believe his shoes have their own mailing address. (It is a longstanding SF fantasy to one day be privy to a photographic essay of said collection. Frankly, I'm not sure we could handle it.)

    I think you would have better luck finding a picture of Manton and MetroStyles making out on the corner of Madison and 63rd in front of Hermes where through the window Foo is receiving his green breast wallet.

    10 minutes since this comment, and no photoshop of it. SF is a fantastic forum, but would benefit from more bored photoshop experts.
