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,

    BBB, I just bought myself a pair of AE Byrons today (black cap toes). Basically, I am of the same mind-set as you, it's time to get rid of poor fitting poorly constructed uglies, and get into some decent footwear. I honestly have thought my shoe size was 10E for the past ten years. Turns out I wear a 9.5EEE. These new AE's fit like a.... well....a glove. [​IMG] -Tom

    Here is my humble opinion:
    Starter shoes (initial layout of about Euro 2000, some RTW brands to consider: E.Green, C&J, Santoni, Mantellassi, Weston)
    1 black cap-toe (plain or with broguing only at the cap borders) or a black derby (eg C&J's Aintree/Darthmouth, similar to Lobb's Perrier)
    1 brown oxford (too many to list)
    1 brown split toe derby (e.g. E.Green's Dover or Lobb's Bordor ) or
    brown side elastic shoe (ala Cleverley)
    1 brown suede derby or oxford (e.g Weston's demi-chasse in brown
    suede)
    1 black Chelsea boot
    The above selection should take care of all occasions.
