    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.

    Been on the lookout for dress shoes for a while and finally got these

    They would probably have been more versatile in brown with charcoal and navy suits

    but oh well. The price on these was good, under $230 shipped

    Bought a Drkshdw snapback cap from www.shopacrimony.com. I hate summer, but it does allow me to concentrate on accessories. It's not like I need a "summer jacket" for 95 F weather. Also received my Master-Piece "Potential"Tote in black today.

    The thing about them, it's that it's footwear. I mean you wouldn't wear shoes with a bunch of flowers on them but floral prints are perfectly acceptable for menswear on clothing. Shoes really solidify and help balance a fit is what I'm saying and you can wear good footwear with pretty much anything. But then again it is your money.

    And no I wouldn't consider Soloist, CdG or RO hipster, the idea that being different for the sake of standing out to be different from everyone else is hipster. Those brands all have their own style to them much like many fashion houses whether it be one whose designers have sold the rights to their company died or simply aren't designing they all stay to a similar platform to what they're style is.

    This is very narrow minded, Floral shoes are awesome and I would wear the fuck out of them if the right pair came along.

    I actually came very close to buying a pair of Liberty print floral Doc Martens (0)

    They were womens only, and the largest size was still a little snug, otherwise they would be mine.

    I'm 90% sure they did a men's version of them, I, also, nearly bought them.
    You have a good taste in footwear, sir.

    Actually, Buttero had some really cool floral print sneakers, not that this is a new idea. Vans has been doing floral motifs for years, decades even.

    Also, fashion houses often change directions when they change creative directors. They might seek to retain the "DNA" of the company's legacy, but superficially, there maybe be very little similar between the brand in one decade, and the brand in another. If you told Christian Dior that his name was going to be synoymous with skinny men's suits for a while, he'd probably think that you'd lost your gourd.

    Dior retained the over-the-top luxury of the original house through those years, though, and Hedi actually did a pretty good job preserving the core of the brand. A better example would be YSL / SL since there is barely any continuity there now that I can see.

    Thorocraft makes nice floral shoes, if I were to buy a pair I would go with them.
