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 sometimes think I coud get by with just black oxfords and color #8 shell long wings. The former are necessary, the latter versatile. Doesn't do much for the shoe rotation side of things, I suppose, but this would definitely streamline things.

    If I were to start over, recognizing that winters get harsh, I'd go:

    Where do you gents source replacement shoe laces in high = similar to original quality? I just can't find any here locally (Indonesia), or online. The ones I got are aftermarket, and look/feel like it. Help appreciated.

    The Hanger Project has some nice flat wound laces.

    Thanks PB! For some reason, as soon as I read this it clicked in my head and I had a 'Duh!' moment. Should have thought of them! Even subscribed to their NL.

    Maybe not just yet. :)
    They have a nice choice in 30".
    I have a six-eye derby (weird, I know, Santoni) with wide-spaced lacing, leaving the current ones too silly short to tie. Could easily do with ~36"...

    Thinking the derby will look better with round, still nice and good to see in comparison. I can see myself building a collection to be prepared for any occasion and needs.

    PS: Found. Most if not all shapes, lengths, widths, colours, specials one could ever need.
