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 was always curious about how Bureau advertises their pricing (as i've never ordered from them, or anywhere, using that currency)

    is the price listed before a 20% reduction for being in a country that doesn't gather VAT?

    I saw the size 11.5 second #8 Indy on the Barrie / leather outsole at The Shoe Mart today...very nice. Snag these quick...ask for Bob. They also had a size 12 unlined LHS in #8, and a few 11-12 #8 and black PTBs

    Allegedly it's similar to Barrie.

    Some info if you can read Japanese.

    Price listed is without VAT in GBP so you'll be paying about US$435 for those ranger mocs.
    With shipping they're going to be about as much as what you'd pay here. Assuming "here" is the USA.

    The Bureau is a good place to buy stuff. I've never had to pay duties/brokerage fees on anything from them when they ship fedex.

    good to know, thanks!

    nothing in my size worth buying, even at the discounted price..

    now if those whiskey LWB had been discounted, I'd have succumbed to whiskey even tho im not a fan of the color

    I could not see the spot in the top picture after looking. I see it in the bottom close-up. Real close-up. I then returned to the top picture and, even knowing where to look, I cannot see the spot. In other words, you got a $245 discount with a defect that is difficult to see above 3 inches.

    As others have written, shoes aren't Rembrandts. Those shoes look great, and you got them at a great price. If the shoes fit, wear them!

    Missoni socks on Zappos and Missoni site on yoox. Can't be best. 50% off, which still makes them $35-$49, but they're the nicest and most well made....in my opinion.

    I think they look good, right in the crease area as well to minimize the blemish. Enjoy

    the belfast bureau prices are INCLUSIVE of 20% vat. So a further 20% would be taken off for outside EU orders.

    With all that whiskey you might want to consider a treatment program. Very lovely collection indeed, particularly the Indy's. Which last are they?
