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.

    thanks @t3hg0suazn, @uzairh, @nicelynice, full list below

    Tokyo: there's a Japan shopping thread on SZ that's very good. In the name of fashion, here is a more or less complete list extracted from that thread. NN can add/comment:

    Lift and Boutique W are definitely highlights if you're into SZ stuff. I also really liked the MMM shop in Gyre (largest in world apparently), CDG/Rick Owens in Aoyama are big and staff are friendly. To maximize exposure in one place, just go to Isetan.

    There's also Carrefour, Devoa flagship, and Al Select (sells older season Devoa). There's really good A5 beef near the latter.

    Devoa is called "Al select"

    /\ Get my screen name right!

    Also, Al Select is not just Devoa. They carry some other stuff like L-0, GBS, Cornelian Taurus, etc:

    ^ Glad that Alessio went on to refine the toe shape to a much rounded one.

    all personal preference of course, but i for one liked the sleeker silhouette; not everything has to be so rounded & bulbous...

    only selling them (& the s21m) as i don't wear browns as much these days

    Liking the toe shape of a1923 oiled culatta ss15. Just ordered the aw14/15 oiled horse double zips and hoping that the toe shape is similar.

    Are the aw models typically heavier or bulkier than the ss models? Do the designers typically use thinner, more breathable leathers for ss?

    Wider, fatter toe than my other A1923s - works well with this thick, creased horse leather. What sold me on these was the beautiful deep crimson color - very uneven, runs almost black in some areas.

    Quick question before I take off the tags and run to vibram these - even sized up, my high arches are still causing the instep/vamp to crunch my feet a little bit. My Guidis and other A1923s stretched fine across the instep, but my Carpes and Jun Hashimotos didn't at all. Both the Guidis and A1923s are cut from a single piece of leather, while the Jun/Carpes are not. Does the stitching across the vamp of the boot connecting the leather affect how they stretch?

    I was able to stretch my ST9's by leaving shoe trees in them over night.

    Did they stretch across the instep? They're tight exactly where the stitching "turns," just hoping that's not an area that will be harder to stretch out.
