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.

    I think so, but disappointed about Bryan leaving. He was a good guy.

    Maybe you guys can marry Bryan if you like him so much :inlove:

    (I dealt with him too, very friendly guy, super responsive and he will be missed. But I just completed another LS order last week and the guys that took care of me were just as great)

    Shane's a good guy to deal with as well. I bought both of my St. Crispin's through him.

    How correct you are Sir if that makes you happy! after me owing two pairs of their shoes and four of their IWC straps 400 GBP a shot! LOL now some say what is this IWC strap !

    I never said they make bad shoes, just that I do not think they are in the same league as JL or EG. Now this is my personal opinion which may be different to others!

    Yes, Santoni has some models that are just as good if not better.

    Hey Chester, that's correct. Phillip will be taking orders at our brand new TriBeCa location December 12th - 14th. Feel free to email nyc@thearmoury.com to make an appointment. And for more information on the store you can check this out.

    +1. The Santonis pictured above are probably not the best example but some Ltd Edition models are way up there.

    On the other end of the scale, the standard Santoni offerings can be dreadfully woeful. This probably skews people's perception of the quality and workmanship.

    Agreed. And that's the problem with having shoes spanning the barely passabe to the truly outstanding under one brand name.

    I will visit. Walking distance from where I live.

    Leffot is awesome. I basically get all my shoes from Steven.

    But to be fair, I have never experienced LeatherFoot. :)

    "Rutt roh raggy"! It's a cat fight. Who can resist talking on the phone to Che at Leffot with her whispery and smoky cool voice. Just call me baby, baby. I know, inappropriate.

    Never talked to anyone on the phone at Leffot but the times I've been in New York and have stopped in, I've found them unfriendly and unhelpful. Maybe I've just had bad luck. Wonderful stock though.

    Mr. Pink, what can I say, it's New Yark. If you go into any store in Manhattan expecting to be waited on "forget about it".
