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.

    Since a few months I have been thinking about ordering a stingray wholecut. Last saturday Riccardo was in Amsterdam with a few pieces of stingray. So we talked a bit about what I wanted and what he recommended.

    We decided on a wholecut, made in goodyear with wooden pegging. The piping, laces, lining, waist of the sole and even the shoe trees will all be made in same colour purple. A very, very dark purple bordering on black. The diamond/pearl of the stingray will be on the tongue of the shoe.

    I have asked Riccardo to update regularly with photo's so I could share them with you fellas. So here is the first bunch of pictures.

    1) pieces are cut..

    Awesome. Makes me want stingrays, and this coming for someone who generally hates exotics.

    They are black, but the colour changes a bit with lighting.
