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,

    These boots? No. From what I understand all the footwear is now made "in-house" aka at some Italian factory.

    I like the shine and the shape is perfect, I was told to size down when I inquired about sizing. I may have to cop these let me know how they fit for you.

    Alright, In case I forget if you don't hear from me shoot me a PM and i'll let you know.

    FWIW this is what the OAMC rep said:
    "I would highly recommend to go one size bigger and get a US 12, the Mara boots came in a bit smaller than we wanted."
    Maybe she meant one size larger than in past OAMC shoes, which would be true. Fuckit I don't know I'll wait and see. LN-CC usually ships quick.

    fwiw, I really like it. Like those boots too. It started off very workweary, but now it's come into it's own as a sorta of tech/street brand with a lot of military and workwear inspirations and influences.

    From what I understand, that Diemme Fontesi are inspired by the nonnative traveller trainer, which were made by nonnative for Diemme. The Fontesi was introduced for FW14, iirc, 1 season after the nonnative traveller trainer.

    Edit: my bad - the Fontesi debuted in FW14, and the nonnative traveller trainer in SS15, so it was possibly the other way around.

    Yeah, it was later. The fontesi also goes up to a 46 if your feet are too big for nonnative sizing, and they offer a similar shaggy suede. They're really nice in person, although so far I haven't quite found that they fit me right.

    I like the Fontesi. I just prefer the clean front of the nonnative Traveller. ymmv, obviously.
