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,

    Izach, LHS stands for Leisure Hand Sewn, these are the loafers (hence leisure) and are hand sewn.

    PTB stands for Plain Toe Blucher. As I understand it a blucher is an oxford where the laces don't tie together tightly and therefor the tongue is visible.

    Is this the irregularity or just a camera angle issue?

    Agreed. Great shoes, but they are swimming in those jeans.

    Nope.

    Blucher = Derby
    Balmoral = Oxford

    I'm pretty sure an Oxford can be a Balmoral or a Derby.

    **Edit**

    Or I could be wrong, I've seen Bals and Derbys lumped together in some online catalogs. Must be for convenience sake.
