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,

    Re: the Lobbs -

    The finish looks very uniform - is there any variegation/antiquing in the finish that has been washed out by the flash?

    Is that their true colour/do you have any other pics of that Dark Oak leather?

    Also, which Lobb line are these from, the standard/classic line I guess?

    Thank you.


    These are from the Classic line. They are a much richer dark oak than in the photo which has been washed out by the flash. There is no antiquing to speak of and I would definitely describe the finish as uniform. If you wanted antiquing you could use some black polish on the toe and heel counter.

    They would look awfully nice with some of those HF sports coats.

    If they were 1/2 size bigger, I would have bought them for sure. That style is perfect for pebble-grained leather imo.

    Thank you for the very full reply - I think I'll pass this time, but hopefully someone else snaps them up. The last shape seems absolutely beautiful, but I don't think the colour/finish is quite for me.
