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.

    You may seriously need to lock up your collection; install a new security system complete with motion sensors and booby traps! [​IMG]

    MrDV,

    Not much to be said that had not already. Absolutely stunning collection. I have been on a bit of a less is more lately and the simplified beauty of the PTB really stands out in this picture to me.
    I see you have zero CXL in your collection, is there any particular reason? The blue suede shoes are like Where's Waldo in that sea of shell :)

    I actually admire his suede collection quite a bit. The snuff-color 8 saddles are my favorites.

    I love those snuff #8 saddles as well. I am considering an MTO from another brand just to try and replicate something similar.

    I was more referring to the bright pop of blue than anything else. I completely agree on the suede collection. I think it looks great and goes to shoe you can have a versatile suede collection without having a chukka
