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.

    That is amazing. I am trying to figure out how to turn a dark welt and sole edge into natural ones. Can your guy do that?

    I was thinking of trying something similar on my Vass Norewegers. I think you can turn the sole edge natural by rubbing it with acetone, then reconditioning it with neutral cream or conditioner. I wouldn't mess with the welt though unless you were re-soling.

    i prefer a fine sandpaper... ...at a cobbler they use the "grounding machine".

    wouldn't touch the the welt either. that's why they ask you about the colour of the thread on the bespoke route.
