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.

    trying to decide between the black full grain horse or reverse horse for the guidi 988.

    found some older images from a japanese store with Guidi 988's that are hand dyed, black h,instead of the black t (tanned-machine dyed? ). You can notice by the drips of dye in the lining. The overall color looks more matted and imo age more beautifully. I have not seen any other retailer offer the hand dyed option. Probably more expensive and labour intensive.
    Anyone know anything more about black h vs. black t?

    Full Grain Horse Hand Dyed - Black H ( new / aged ) :

    Reverse Horse Hand Dyed - Black H ( new / aged ):

    The reverse horse looks particularly amazing as it ages - revealing tones of the original brown underneath. I might just have to settle with the more common Reverse Horse Black T.

    They're lovely, but at the same time I would be pretty annoyed if my black shoes turned brown.

    Was debating whether to toss my Guidis and just buy a new pair or shell our for resoling and repair

    Too much sentimental attachment. Bill ended up being around $160 for new rubber soles and heels (the third heels and fourth soles this pair will have seen!), strengthening the leather where it's worn thin, repairing a couple eyelets, and fixing the major surface damage - less than I thought it might run. Hopefully I can get another couple years out of 'em
    I'll post up pics when they come back in a week or so

    all those are always pretty expensive


    good list, i'd say hide-m (Holger) and pn/p(Marco) have best prices everyone else has a high markup but then again if you are looking for something rare then you'll have to pay more.

    vertice london has better prices than most other places, and they do custom orders too. their inventory is a bit plain though
