    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.

    There was a kickass stingray venetian loafer on display at April in Paris a while ago, with the white diamond and big cuban heels. They'd have fit right in at a Borgia dinner party.

    As someone on a limited budget, I have to make sure almost all genera are represented first. [​IMG]

    Right now the only single monk I like is the EG/RLPL with medallion, IIRC it's the RLPL Gant.

    Don't like the vass F or U monks? less $s and of course much better quality (in my opinion)

    I'll try the Vass F last next time. Problem is I don't know where to get Vass. I got my chukka from margo and ralph but they have a very limited selection.

    Very nice, aon. I like your Amoury selections.

    I did a bit of loafer damage in New York last week. Hayling suede and Poole calf.
