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,

    I'd also much much prefer all brass eyelets (as opposed to speed hooks). Pretty impartial on the other details, but I feel like not having speed hooks definitely adds an air of refinement.

    Absolutely gorgeous! More fuel behind the no speed hooks in the current makeup too!

    Speed hooks will certainly make it easier to put them on, however I find this boot in particular looks so much better without them, and I really don't care if they will mostly be covered up. Just so much better without them.

    True, but I find that it's maybe a few seconds, if that. Maybe I'm just used to it because many of my boots are without speed hooks.

    Having the Arran in Kudu would be a great idea. TBH I would most likely be interested too, if it truly materialises. IIRC, a couple of weeks ago someone posted a pic of his Arran MTOs in ? Tan kudu, and it looked bloody sick.

    My take on Kudu Thorpe:
    All brass eyelets (no speedhooks)
    Normal welt (not storm)
    Double leather sole (or HAF? Not dainite)
    MH71 (but GG06 also ok)

    I'd much rather have Dainite.
