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.

    Cannot believe I am about to say this but after following this thread I "may" prefer the thorpe to the Nevis.

    For now I'm leaning towards the Thorpe as well.

    I can't remember exactly when they were stopped, but they were halted after the Nevis GMTO went through.

    At this point I'd rather get the lighter colored Thorpe.

    it probably would be easier to just have someone post the pictures of each one in contention and then people can vote here.

    Shocked. :wow: you're kidding, there was a month long window to pay for it and @dddrees was spamming the gmto nonstop during that time so it's not like you didn't get the memo. This would never happen to a real boot fan :stirpot:

    I like to think of it not as spamming but advertising. LOL



    Besides in the end isn't this the reason the Mahogany CC Nevis was able to get the remaining numbers to become a reality?

    That major difference between the Nevis amd Thorpe is the just the shape of the apron correct? Aside from the obvious difference in lasts.

    I prefer the Thorpe. For me it's the additional stitching on the sides that really make it for me

    I tens to agree with you on this one, GG sizes like EG? I also think I prefer the blind eyelets, they do GMTO correct. Sorry for all the ?s I haven't really considered GG seriously as generally their aesthetics are too forward for me.

    I had asked Gabriel about the WeTransfer link. The new folders work for me. Thanks!

    Edit: @Leaves I just looked through the new photos. Does Bonafe have a model like the EG Ullswater? I thought I saw it in the WeTransfer photos but can't find it again.

    Any easy way to just download all the files? Like a zip file?
