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.

    Hi all

    I'm new to the thread so forgive me if this question has been posted before. I bought a pair of Alden cordovan monkstraps on eBay and they have a problem in that the elastic holding the buckle has perished. Do you know if this is a cheap fix? BTW I'm in the UK so sending to Alden would presumably be prohibitively expensive. Looks like this:

    If your are in the UK then there are plenty of cobblers there who are competent enough to repair that. You will want to take them there and ask that fine chap what he can do for you.

    Congrats, it's like winning the lotto getting through to TSM let alone getting something you want.

    That's quite an awesome collection. I'm loving my Indys so far and desperately want to add some more and get a collection going. I have some natty CXL indys from Leffot on preorder but considering selling them to save for some shell indys. Do you usually keep the cigars to casual wear?
