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,

    I love these! Can I use the image? The sharkskin saddleshoes may be a bit loud but they are tonally harmonious and pretty well made. Nuthin' to see here folks. Move along.

    But we see those all the time. I wanna see the worst Aldo can dream up. I wanna see duck-billed hightops with the little basketball pumps on the front in the rarest and ugliest of baby bird-skin.

    Those are horrible, but I kinda wish I had a pair. Spoo probably already does. As for the AE pebblegrain casual saddles. I've seen far worse.

    ^^ I believe those are bespoke, so the client has to be blamed rather than the designer

    Then the client is the designer?

    But any time you put your name on anything even if the customer demands it you're responsible. If your name is on a turd nobody is going to blame the customer. I guess they might blame the customer for buying a turd from you but in the end it's your name that gets covered in muck.

    Believe it or not, those were Lobbs according to the seller.

    Spoo was the seller, so you will have to ask him.

    And then there are the L. V. shoes...
