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.

    HA! Maybe ugly shoes are like ugly women, they just try harder. Actually I'm a fan (NOT surprising, i'm sure). You KNOW I'd rock these all day long!

    "Fritzl's advocacy of central European shoes is like that of globetrotter on Isreal."

    ah, ok. in a general context, i have the feeling that the advocacy of english shoes is a much stronger power, right?

    Meister...thank you for your kind words of appreciation

    Fritzl said it well...double monks are the ugliest out there

    I love this monk and am glad I stayed away from the Goyser stitching

    Meister, in case you were wondering, I have a black calf wing tip version of this same monk...and its the most comfortable monk I own. Its not aesthetically pleasing to your tastes...but IMO, these shoes rock [​IMG]

    Not all double monks are ugly. I like Chapel from JL. Similarly not all Monks are ugly... but the shoes above would definitely qualify.

    I just can't the picture of Frankenstein out of my mind whenever I look at that toe box. Different stroke for different folks.

    But the rest of the shoe is beautiful.

    [​IMG] not many people buy BMW motorcycles for their looks, but they're highly regarded. The quality of the leather, the finishing, the construction ( DH hand lasts, hand stitches welts) and the Austro-Hungarian styling are pretty awsm IMO. I likethe solid A-H construction and look as much as Corthay's Arca's elfin Frenchyness or the Englishness of the Dover . [​IMG]

    I'm not a great photographer and they do look a bit long in the vamp/toe in these pics (size UK11)....but no [​IMG]

    Here's a stock pic:

    I've just "discovered" these. Sort of a middle class man's John Lobb?

    Anyone own Barker anniversary and have a comment on long term quality?

    thank you

    Cross posted from the Rock Your Socks thread. It's the day before a holiday weekend. People are already annoyed by the fact I wear ties to work. So some bright socks has them talking. I've heard "Those don't match" and "Only you would wear socks that color.

    I just got these shoes as NOS. Not really a fan of tasseled loafers but I loved the color and the price was ridiculously cheap.

    If anyone know s anything else about these shoes let me know.
