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,

    A fine principle, although I do have some shiny black brogued balmorals for which I make my sole exception. Cf. PCK's chino/derby fit, I also think it's imperfect, but for a different reason: although the last is a contributory factor, the dissonance is in the texture. Had the chinos been lighter, perhaps beige or tan instead of grey, and even with a turn-up instead of that heavy double seam, it would have been perfect. But those grey numbers have more of a jeans feel about them, and need a shoe with more texture to balance. A double sole and a more country last would be optimum too, but I think perhaps had they been suede or scotchgrain or something else less slick and shiny, that might have been enough.

    Ian, I love your shoes. My attitude to denim is expressed with tiresome regularity, so I won't elaborate again other than to say that I think indigo jeans work best with bike boots or something heavy and workmanlike, in line with their origin. But in principle, I see nothing at all wrong with jeans and oxfords. In fact, that was my choice today - and I think the suede bit and brogueing are what make these sleek oxfords jeans-worthy:

    This fit seems strange, specialy around the vamp and ball of foot,seems your foot and shoe have different dimensions.

    Yes, they're half a size too long really, and breaking in the wrong place. One of the pitfalls of having wider feet with certain lasts.

    Alfred Sargent Armfields. This is my first wear, but not before I gave them a good shine at the captoes. Beautiful 80 degree weather today in Chicago [​IMG]

    What are people's thoughts on suede loafers in the summer?

    Suede is generally not acceptable...but in the form of a loafer...it seems to be the exception...
