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,

    Good question, I'm not sure. They look very similar. The Vass catalog recommend the norweger ST "on our Peter last, since the hand-sewn vamp looks best on this symmetric last with a rounder cap form". The P2 doesn't look that symmetrical, maybe that is the difference. I don't have any shoes in the Peter to compare.

    I agree, as I said before in one of my comments earlier you have taste.
    This shoe looks beautiful, is this Antique Cognac?

    I recently dipped my toe into the Vass pond through the good offices of Habor Galmos. Got a PTB in Burgundy (Bordeaux?) on Budapest Last and a Norwegian in cognac with cognac pebble tongue on the Peter. If I ever learn how to post, much less take good photos, I will post these. I now understand the allure.

    Indeed, they look great!.

    This is how they look in derbies with a plain toe. I know I know, I have posted these many times but I always find an excuse to do it again.
