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,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    >How would you rank these makers in terms of construction quality?

    I picked out some of the best bespoke shoemakers. From most of them I know their work.

    >How do you rank the companies which make RTW shoes?

    Not everyone needs bespoke.
