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.

    Cheers,

    Discussed ad nauseum, but : JL, EG, Kiton (if you are going by price), to name a few.

    Vass makes great shoes. I have three pairs from them, the oldest one will soon be 7 years. They seem to be harder wearing than any of my English shoes, although I have never had JL, EG or C&J. The best shoes I have ever had are by far my J. M. Weston chasseĀ“s. They are incredibly sturdy (and clunky) and the leather soles, from their own tannery seem much harder wearing than the Rendenbachs Vass uses.
    Another plus with the Westons: they have got much better breathability than all other shoes I have owned.
