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,

    I don't understand the infatuation with chukkas on this forum.
    When Daniel Craig wore some dark brown suede in Quantum of Solace it did not make them less popular.

    they might be well made, but i can't stand the aesthetics. no big deal

    the chukka itself is not my kind of footwear, but there have been shown some good looking examples i.e. marteganni, vass, c&j etc. still i wouldn't bite.

    horses for courses

    ^^^I don't like the Alden chukka on the Barrie last, even though I have a pair. Minve have become my shoes for shoveling snow and other unpleasant tasks.

    EG "Malvern" in chestnut on the 202 last, I think. Last possibly a bit squared off.

    I'm saving the pennies up for that style - a real beauty.

    Definitely EG Chestnut. Possibly the 606 last, but since it's older it might be a more obscure last like the 808.

    Sorry, but these are pretty ugly/clunky shoes.

    Testoni (Norwegian construction). A few years old, back when Black Label was the high end line.
    After-market antique finish by Rider. Not a fan of heel plates. Asked for toe plates, but the cobbler did both toe and heel plates[​IMG]
