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,

    That's not a good look in that thread. All kinds on incongruity going on there.

    Engineered Garments look book is a better source of inspiration for something like that. Gotta be less shiny, maybe pebbled grain, not balmoral, and preferably with a crepe sole or something chunky (anything to make it look less like a dress shoe).
