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.

    Leaves, can Bonafe make something like the G&G Antibes? The baby Lllama would look great in this design.

    They can do a reverse hand sewn apron like in the toe, but it doesn't look like that (not as good IMO, the English makers does this much nicer), their normal split toe looks like this: [​IMG]

    Personally I have no plans in getting both. Right now one in that style is all I'm potentially thinking of getting.

    I'm keen on a blue boot, but not in this heavily brogued style. An austerity brogue or austerity U wing would have my full support.

    I always loved this boot by Carmina - it's on the Deia (sp?) last:

    I wanted to do the same thing a while back but I didn't get any hits for a GMTO. On the Robert last this would look amazing.

    I am interested since the originals turned out amazing (wish we could get the cordovan again). But, I would really only be interested in something pretty mainstream.

    How about Tobacco Suede, the reddish version we first stocked?

    Well it's not blue. ;-) But it sounds like a nice idea in its own right.

    Are there pictures up on your site of this suede? I admit that I was thinking calf but I am open to consider other options.

    I'm open to any ideas on the makeup. I loved the originals from pics

    Thanks for the clarification. Should be good!

    G&G's KN14 last (as pictured in terrorsquad's post), for dressier loafers, is probably the best last on the market. :nodding:
