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.

    Cheers,

    Genuine tortoise shell frames from Osawa Bekko, in Tokyo. I'd put transition lenses into them.

    Hawkbill turtle is endangered. I'm afraid I can't get behind that.

    To go with your boot trees?

    trees for one thousand pound sterling. probably not in this life...

    These boots are awesome, Fritzl - would you wear something like these?

    definitely, imo they are less fancy than the deco range or this(1&2).

    check the gallery. you'll not be disappointed.

    if, i'm not mistaken. these are part of his regular offers/collection.

    My local menswear shop has their Belvest suits marked down. They said the high-end stuff isn't moving well. They have a solid medium gray Belvest suit originally marked $3,500 for $995 - and it is my size and fits like a glove. But I can't remember the last time I wore a suit. So I can't justify a thousand for this suit. But it sure is nice and I sure want it. Chris
    Where and what is your local menswear shop?. In the past two months I picked up a cashmere Belvest jacket and a suit at great prices. I didn't really need either, especially the suit, but the particular model works very well for me. Do know what model(s) your shop is selling? Thanks.

    Zonks!


    +1 I don't need boots but I'd love to convert half my shoe collection to them. Something is just so bold yet is so under the radar in my city that I would smile every day.

    Definitely don't need this but have a strong compulsion to get it.

    Without a doubt they are less fancy than the deco range. That link you just provided not only shows the beautiful shoes, but also has great close-up pictures of leathers as well. I'm further amazed by the technical expertise it takes to create these: http://petkov.at/uploads/noviCevli46.jpg

    I thought, "Hell, if we're just wishing, then I'll nominate this for myself."
