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.

    Cheers,

    It's a shoe care regimen. Go to the Alden thread and search for the Mac Method.

    This seems to be reasonable method, good not only for your shoes, but also for your feet. To wear shoes just for few hours at first is reasonable. I try to do it in general with all my new shoes. But not wear them just on the carpet, it is not an issue from my point of view. Just try to avoid dusty or wet places ... .

    It's where grown men follow ludicrous shoe care suggestions handed down from a weirdo.

    Just wanted to thank the Skoak team for their great work and services. I received my MTO yesterday and it's great. Enzo Bonafès's Plum Museum Calf is great. I asked for a dark piece of leather and that's what I got. It's almost black/brown but comes out as deep red under light. It's amazing and extremely versatile. I can see it working with all kind of colors. It's basically a substitute for black, red and brown shoes without being any kind of compromise. Much like Vass' oxblood. I can see myself ordering more shoes in Plum in the future. Thanks Skoak.

    I think we have it, but you can just do a screenshot and then the watermark is gone.

    Tried to report it, unfortunatelly, the ebay policy clearly says, that the owner has to report it by himself [​IMG].
