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.

    FYI: The tannery Ilcea has now gone bankrupt. RIP Museum calf. If you've been thinking about ordering a pair in Museum calf from John Lobb, Vass, DC Lewis or some other maker, now is the time to do it...

    A person working in the leather industry. Apparently happened a couple of weeks ago. Did know that they had problems, but thought someone would come along and save them. According to the source there was many investors interested in the company, but seems like the debts was too large so no one felt it was worth it.

    Lovely collection, not humble at all.

    Nutcrack: Except for the Meermin, none look like museum calf...

    I need to learn to take better pictures to be fair to my shoes. And maybe a new rug, aportney style.

    Please impart any knowledge, tips and tricks.


    Ha. Only one Meermin MTO in museum calf.

    Chogall, lighting is the most important thing for me when taking photoes, good natural light brings out the best photos.

    I am just slowly learning lighting is a big problem for me. I need to learn how to focus and frame as well. Using an old Nikon D70 basically like point and shoot.

    This is another useful photo from the same set, taking right after the last one, i.e., pressing the shutter button twice. And the focus is completely different. Ya I am a noooooob.
