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.

    Someone posted this paul harnden long blazer on the facebook group. Someone should get it. Fabric looks incredible -- wool/linen tweed. Size L so probably good for a 48ish. No price listed, so an offer style situation.

    Hrm don't really know how facebook groups work. It's just the Paul Harnden closed group. Heard about it, went on face book and searched for it and then asked to join and the creator let me in after a day or so :)

    Edit: In case this helps guy selling it is called Henrik Walcher based in Austria based on his infoz.

    @sinnedk: those are spiral zips. Dual zips were high on my list (still is) but I reckoned to go for these first because I read duals are harder to wear due to its stiffer structure. Trying to avoid hazards of buying online without trying on person.

    Those were yours? I saw them way back when they first popped up but sadly 1.5 sizes too big.

    ^^ Yea. They just weren't getting any wear, and I'm trying to consolidate everything down to what I "need"/wear(and gather funds for some m_moria).

    Just wondering, for the linen over leather boots, is the linen meant to wear away eventually and just be a leather boot?

    I was wondering that as well, I mean a fabric over cordovan of all leathers. I would be tempted to rip it off out of curiosity.

    I've never seen any linen over leather boots where the fabric has worn off - it's thick and bonded to the shoe, not loosely attached. Placing it over the leather gives structure to the fabric.

    And following these $ 3500 shoes please welcome a pair of boots that look pretty decent and are discounted to EUR 220.

    IDK, m_moira looks good in pics but then i see the side shot and am not a fan.

    I've handled Premiata and its built solid. There was something about CCP either once designing for premiata or premiata making some boots for him at some point. Never got a clear answer on that.
