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.

    I love wholecuts, so I'd say those would look sexy for a CBD outfit, butttttt it's hard to think of a better shoe for your wedding than that!

    I think your totally right, but I have a grey wholecut that I accidentally went too much on with black polish which look killer with grey trousers.

    Congrats! What size did you get? Did you figure out the issue because I see you sold off a bunch of G&G for fit issues.

    Yea Patrik was able to get me a standard width on the MH71 last but was able to add width adjustment in just the toe box. There obviously was a slight premium but definitely worth it

    I didn't pull the trigger on this one and regret it too. There were a few sizes in odd stock for a while so I am guessing that it wasn't the best seller and maybe an unlikely restock candidate. If be very happy to hear that I'm wrong.

    How many of our Skoaktiebolaget friends are part of the new Sweden phone number? Bunch of coworkers and I called Sweden today. Sadly neither person knew Skoak (I could be pronouncing it like a crazy Yank) :/ At least our second person knew Koenigsegg.

    One of my St. C pairs came in on my custom last! There are on the classic last and are a modified green so they are olive green in color with a darker burnished toe:

    Is it just me or does this pair seem to have the welting a bit further than usual?

    wow I love that boot! I definitely will need to get a shoe in that hatch grain but I already have a normal calf vintage rioja boot, so can't jump in on this one!

    My first trying on of the pair:

    What do you guys think? I will be using a thicker sock, but just tried this on with the current thin sock because I was testing out a few different pairs at the same time.
