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,

    Dear, @SpooPoker ,
    Thank you for sending me back for the skeets. I listed one as a test. It lasted less than 3 hours.
    Warmest regards,

    Try and see if using an insert wouldn't help matters.

    Because if so, what a coincidence that she's demonstrating ... wait, no, let me not finish that.

    The issue with them running big is that (and excuse my lack of correct terms) on top of the foot in front of the lace, when you step...where that has broken in over the years kinda sharply hits me high up the metatarsals instead of down where the metatarsals/phalange joint is.... if that makes sense.

    Though I will say in the 5 or so days I have worn them it seems to have gotten better..a bit...

    Huge shout out to @impuntura for a sweet trade on that Gieves and Hawkes safari coat he posted a while back. Fits perfectly! :slayer: :slayer: :slayer:
    Also a huge shout out to aging in rhythm for a trade that included a vintage PRL navy db blazer and also that kick ass vintage Helmut Lang parka! So cool!!! :nodding:
    Also e-thrifted these the other day. Raf Simmons. Should pair nicely with the Lang.

    You can also get little pads to stick on the upper parts of the shoe. Maybe try one of those until they conform to your foot shape. Shell does a pretty good job of that after some regular wear.

    Day 2 aka the saga continues...
    Kentucky was terrible. Today really felt like a grind but I found a few things.

    Oxxford glen plaid suit
    [​IMG]
    Daniel crom loro piana super 130 suit and staple Brooks brothers
    [​IMG]
    Brooks Brothers silk coat
    [​IMG]
    Brooks Brothers 3/2 navy blazer
    [​IMG]
    Nudie jeans
    [​IMG]
    A few other Tommy/polo/nautica items but nothing worth photographing now.

    Happy to be out of Kentucky. It was a grind to hit 12 stores and most were just shit.
