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.

    ^^^RL had a captoe in the mid-late 90's with a similar sole. The RL shoe looked very similar to the Cole Haan.

    I guess they don't make theas any longer?

    I'm sure somebody does. All they are is a formal pump.

    My collection, all are between 0.5 and 3 years old. I wear each pair about one time per week. While my shoe knowledge has improved during the last three years at styleforum, my photography skills have not.

    Top row: AS Premier, AS Premier, AS Premier for Herring, CJ Benchgrad for S&H
    Bottom row: Loake 1880 for Herring, CJ Benchgrade, CJ Handgrade for RL, RL, Cleverley

    The tassel loafers are made by CJ. The drivings mocs are made in Italy. Something like the RL rip-off version of Tod's.

    They look good - I'm guessing they're the shoe version of the 'Harrison' boot

    Rather 'add' than 'swap' [​IMG]. Honestly, I need to get some derbys. And boots. And dark brown oxfords [​IMG].

    Here's my contribution... Despite their age, the uppers could pass for new.

    The box has almost as much character.

    I love how these shoes have aged over the last few years.

    Maquiladora FTW!

    Now, to find some toe taps...
