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,

    Dat feel when your grail status shoes are the wrong size for the 3rd time.
    They're just a tiny bit too long in the front but its enough to bug a perfectionist like me [​IMG]
    Might keep them and use em with an insole but I don't like fixes like that. Oh well.

    Anyway, I just kopped these which are pretty much identical and cheaper. Construction is probably the same too. Good return policy so figured I could give them a shot.

    Also bought this CDGH+ boiled wool jacket a couple days ago

    Shhhhhh.... I don't want to hear that.
    This kind of piece has been on my kop list for a very long time. Don't wanna go searching again [​IMG]

    Nah, but in all seriousness, thanks for the info. Hope its not too bad. Probably only gonna wear it with a knit underneath so that might make it more manageable.

    its fine with a knit or thick shirt. i think some of the threads are just really heavy poly threads that have come loose, and are poking me at the seams

    Just when I said no more a week ago, here are another pair of Ann. D derbies in calf-hair. Really hope these will fit, kopped half a size larger than my usual size but at 70% off who the fuck cares!

    19cm Dior Homme Secular Waxed - from LVR unfortunately they were out of my my size, so I went to up and they are too big. Anyone know where I can find these in a 34? @kgfan5 you own these or similar jeans, could you point me in the right direction?

    dunno about the secular wash but aside from lvr and farfetch, b&s / sufu / ebay might be your best bet if you are looking for black coated / waxed dh. i have the sharp notation and holly night. both have popped up on sufu and eBay from time to time.

    Thanks for the reply kgfan5, I guess I waited to long to buy as I have called a few Dior stores and the 19cm waxed jeans this year have an iridescent finish and the wax/resin/coating is distressed like the Balmain's I recently picked up. I was looking for an all over shine to replace my SLP that accidental went in the wash after one wear while visiting the family during the holidays.
