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.

    you are right . . . . a different style should be considered . leaning toward a loafer of some sort thanks to you.
    enuff gladiating in my life, no need to portray

    oh i'm keeping the gator facing on that one I think as-is will be a good bit more subdued than the gladiator
    regardless of materials choice . . . . don't have the stones for that one

    I must say that Suede is a great idea ... I never thought of that. But I'd suede but still with that small part close to the strings in crocodile

    For me these are the most beautiful, really ... and in the week, work permitting, I'm going to test the shoe test. I'll show you the pictures.

    hi gianni, i think this model was designed a couple of years ago by riccardo for another dutch client, looking to improve, http://www.styleforum.net/t/251332/riccardo-bestetti-bespoke-projects/330_30#post_5032662. a bit of an acquired taste imo. but the leather looks very interesting. would love to see an update on this loafer! when will you be at riccardo's workshop again?

    As beautiful as this is I can't help of think of it as the legs on a really ornate dining room table or something.

    Thank you for your kind comment. I was by Richard yesterday and I took quite a few photos .... and I think I caught a glimpse of something truly unique that I show you just drain the photos. However, the evidence before it went great for my crooked feet =) In a few hours I'll show you everything.

    Does anyone else find that their feet swell so much that well fitting shoes are unpleasant by the end of the day?

    Your feet normally swell when they are tired at the end of the day. Everything is related to water retention. There are feet that swell more, and feet that swell less. It is up to the customer to explain their problems to the artisan. It is then up to the craftsman to do the best job possible.
