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.

    In the back, where no one will ever see the stitching but you. Stitching on the edge would show to everyone else.

    How often does someone hold you upside down to inspect your belt stitching on the bottom? it has to be stitched and how does the bottom not show less than an entire visual plane?

    Much like the gonads on your shirts, I don't get this either.

    I'm secretly hoping that he orders the Tardini successfully, but that months pass and it does not arrive. That way, we can have a new thread on this topic.

    Fingers crossed.

    Someone please take pity on my Tubo-deprived soul.

    This thread is more likely to live on due to the throngs of new Tubo fanatics it will invariably spurn.

    were you able to successfully contact tardini?

    details of how you plan to re-acquire a tubo?

    I'd never seen or heard of a tubo until this thread, now I'm anxious to see one.

    In time, in time.

    You can probably find a calfskin Tubo in New York if you look around. Bergdorf, Saks, and Jay Kos each carried Longhi at one point and may still.

    ^^^ It's an awesome belt. I have a black pebblegrain calfskin Tubo like one of those.

    Apparently, everyone's doing the tube! Joseph Bruce 1928: [​IMG] [​IMG] Orvis: [​IMG] Jos. A. Bank: [​IMG] Even Amazon: [​IMG]
    You know, if they put a zipper in the back, you could hide money in it . . .

    In the 10 minutes it took me to go through this thread, I have evolved from confusion, horror, skepticism, understanding, and now agreement.

    Thank you. Tubo[​IMG]

    [​IMG] Call wilkes bashford in San fran AND palo alto. Was just at the SF store this past weekend and they have lots of Longhi belts in calf and croc. Didn't see this thread until today so didn't look for the tubo style, but I'd give them a check.
