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.

    Just got these Carminas. There's an unsightly blemish on the toe-cap, are these fixable by polish? If not I'll have to return them.

    Honestly, I'd leave it. Patina is awesome. Over time using a reddish polish will get rid of it, but if you want to get rid of it faster you'd have to use Renomat to strip it, then some pigmented cream polish followed by wax polish to build the finish back up.

    Thanks. I was fearing that the damage was 'permanent' and not fixable over time by polish/renomat, but you've reassured me.

    jas0nt, that 'blemish' looks like nothing worse than burnishing, a readymade patina, far from a defect. Wear your pair in health with a discerning grin.

    The designs on the toe and heel just say no to me,


    The leather also kind of looks off to me.

    Yes, tramp stamps don't belong on a man's shoes, or anywhere else on a man.
