    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.

    I assume the polished captoes are Valentino. Pick them if you have to pick one. What are you looking for though?

    Don't get the Burberrys. The shape of the upper just looks confused, and they don't look right on the sole. People will think it's a blacked-out Cole Haan LunarGrand.

    If price is no object, the Valentinos are pretty decent IMO -- most importantly, the shape is perfectly respectable. And the stud detail is subtle enough but will still probably attract the right kind of attention. The only thing I don't like is that extra seam by the eyelets.

    Sure beats the hell out of this:

    yeah if you're constraining yourself to those two options, the valentinos win. but there are way better captoe oxfords out there

    But do they let you wear them on the plane or do you have to check them.

    These are on sale for like 250. I originally wanted a pair of this season's W+H high tops but this looks like a good deal. Thoughts?

    Any thoughts on whether or not I should get this? Currently a college student. Anyone else own one?

    Those are disgusting and stupid......get them.

    I been thinking about starting a thread along the lines of "Official Repository of Things That Are Awful Yet I Like Them Anyway For No Good Reason (shame thread)."

    I have so much to fill it with. Rick Plinth boots, $1k trashy Lanvin running sneakers, over-designed zipper festooned garbagio.....Glorious dumbness abounds, and it calls to me.
