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,

    Whoa! When you guys speak of "band-aid" colored shoes, I always thought of EG Burnt Pine. If its Edwardian, then throw me in the FNB camp!

    Tan shoes are an enduring summer classic. I mean woven shoes for summer are an abomination, but tan?

    she probably thought you were a retired, rich, eccentric old man that looked incredibly good for your 82 years of age.

    What's wrong with tan shoes? What else would you pair a khaki, light grey or blue, or tan suit with?

    I think a light brown leather (Burnt Pine, in this case) will always trump the tan (Edwardian) version

    Well second one from the left is what I call "tan" and I believe it would look great with a khaki suit... but I wouldn't say no to the first pair (talking about colour, not the shoe itself) with a seersucker suit, either.

    I was referring to the third (Edwardian) and fifth (Burnt Pine) shoes from the left.

    I would wear any of those shoes but acorn, admittedly, has a very narrow usefulness.
