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.

    Thanks! Mahogany. Pics are more "red" than real life. A rich brown in person

    Wish I was a "rich brown," too; currently just a broke one :)

    Dover is on my list for next year. You guys are enablers...

    @Leaves Could you refresh my memory, fur covers how much of the interior of the Carmina Jumper in Tärnsjö grain?

    Nothing beats a black wholecut

    +1. I picked up the Rain wholecuts during the sale and am pretty excited. Those G&Gs are sick.

    Nice! Assume those are the ones I would have bought? :)

    I think it would be "the" formal black shoe for me, but I do cheat with my EG Chelseas so I hessitate. Those look great!

    What's more formal - black plain captoe or black wholecut? For me personally, I'd say the wholecut even if it isn't "formal" in the traditional sense. It just seems cleaner and more elegant. I own both and I prefer to wear my wholecuts if the occasion calls for it (weddings, galas, etc).

    Dare I say that the wholecut is more elegant, yet the captoe is more professional?

    @tifosi disagrees with me in 5, 4, 3, 2...

    ^ I would agree with @Bakes11771

    In some contexts the whole cut will be a little too dandy. Probably very few contexts, though. And again, most people won't notice, or, if they do notice, they will only notice that you are wearing nice shoes.

    Wholecuts don't seem right for a conservative-business office. They're formal but flashy, which is ironic given their minimalist styling.

    Can't go wrong with captoe oxfords.

    Amen. But I would not want to be without a wholecut though. :) Actually I am at the moment. I'm between wholecuts.
