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,

    Trousers were a recent purchase as I went looking for a croc belt and was disappointed but found these instead :)

    Thanks - these shoes are actually improving with some care.

    The patina colors are much more interesting since I added a couple coats of turquoise cream polish.

    And most importantly, the leather has become much more supple and less cardboardy with the application of three heavy coats of mink oil. The creasing is softening - not going away of course - but softening.

    Yes - the excitement was nearly unbearable. :lol: I did laundry and threw out old socks. Even ordered a couple pair of Marcolini to try out!

    The temperature was 106 on Saturday, 105 yesterday, and should barely reach 100 today. Given the dropping temps I'm looking for my big wool coat and scarves as we speak! :embar:

    Just two pairs of cotton, cobalt blue herringbones, otc. Want to test the fit. If the fit is good I'll go back for more.

    Frankly I've not been terribly impressed with the mid calf Pantherellas that I've been wearing. Yes they were reasonably priced, and I like the patterns, etc. etc. But they don't stay up well and that drives me bonkers. Going back to try more otc.

    The Viccel otc are pretty nice. But I guess you know that already.

    Yeah - but only in solid colors - not quite my style. Although they do have a large following.
