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.

    good to know.

    quite a number of the paprika comes in pebble grain...


    Bring 'em on!

    In all seriousness though, I had to sell my former pair of pebble grain boots and have been itching for another pair ever since. I'm thinking a EG Galway-style boot in dark brown and perhaps another Chukka. We'll see how things shake out.

    Dunno, because I like it the back crack? [​IMG] Can't really explain it except I find it looks a bit off. Mind you, I like external heel counters so... I'm not among those who find heel seams look unrefined.

    so do your heel counters need rear seams too?

    Nice try, but I'm not about to go all [​IMG] on this thread. Shoes with no heel seams are like pants with no back pockets.

    no no no it was an honest question, i mean we all have odd fetishists, but if yours is to have a seam then how about with/ on heel counters, as some brand do, some dont and other just dart them?

    I prefer when the external heel counter is 1 piece with a small 'dart' of stitching at the bottom. I do have a pair with a heel counter and seam down the middle; I find those look a bit busy, perhaps the opposite of your seamless backs! [​IMG]

    I think that those involved in the operation are alway happy to have a little teaser. After all it is also a form of charity.

    I prefer the former: the curve on the lower quarter gives the shoe a longer, sleeker appearance, while the straight line of the latter interrupts the flow of the shoe's lines.

    De gustibus non est disputandum, of course!
