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,

    Is anyone familiar with the quality of his shoes?
    I saw some at IF Boutique in NYC that i loved. They were really expensive though about 1300. I think all his shoes are..is it worth the price in terms of quality?

    I'm familiar with Paul & his shoes. If you appreciate his aesthetic and hand crafted artisan feel to his shoes then it's worth the money.

    Quality is very good, in an 'imperfectly beautiful' way [​IMG]

    Try Barney's in NYC. I was looking at some recently in Barney's in Shinjuku, Tokyo, so there's a good chance that they will be sold in NYC too.

    If I remember correctly Paul Harnden used to work as a craftsmen at John Lobb (or at least apprenticed there) and brings the same commitment to quality that they supposedly had in the past. Lobb a pretty large operation now and the artisan approach has somewhat fallen on the wayside which isn't the case for Harnden. His clothes and shoes have a very 19th century English worker feel and that is definitely not for everyone but if you dig it by all mean indulge, those shoes should last you a lifetime and two reincarnations.
