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,

    well, TG73 doesn't fit me as it is already, guess I will have to skip U last even in wide fit, straight to F last then...

    Anyone inclined to help a Vass noob help get his first pair, please click the spoiler



    1. Sizing - in F last, 9.5 UK in CJ = 43.5 abd 10UK = 44, right ?

    2. What last is the shoe below on ?

    3. What is the name of the suede of the shoes in this pic ?

    [​IMG]

    4. Is it possible to have a close cut sole on a double sole ?

    5. Is it possible to get the derby shoes in the first pic with a seemless back

    [​IMG] dark brown suede and the other is medium brown suede the derby looks like it is on the 3636 last - other examples [​IMG] [​IMG] as for the seamless butt, ask your dealer, he might be able to help arrange, thro they might be a surcharge
