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,

    Hello Dan,

    They are in the safe hands of DHL - should be with you on Monday morning.

    Thanks
    Sammy.

    BTW: We had some enquiries from the Rolex forum about your shoes. A small goodwill discount waiting on your next Vass pair.

    Interesting you call them slip-ons.....are dmonks meant to be slipped on, as it were? I always have the nearer buckle undone, then slip my foot in and fasten the buckle...have I been doing it all wrong?

    Quote:That term is sometimes used as a catch-all for shoes without laces. I can't imagine one would put these on or take them off without undoing one buckle. Beautiful chukkas rikod - I envy your collection.

    I never unbuckle any of my monks, single or double. Maybe I'm the one who's doing it wrong, but it's not uncomfortable to do (and definitely more convenient), and it doesn't seem to hurt or strain the shoe

    Quote:Not at all Fiddler, it's my personal preference not to buckle up (especially on the weekends)...and true what RogerP says about shoes with no laces are effectively - slip-ons....Then again, if you're a guy that never lace-up then all your shoes are slip-ons.... As a kid, all my footwear used to be slip-ons until my dad taught me how to tie my own laces :)

    My single monks have a hidden elastic strip so there's no need to undo the buckle, but my understanding is that Vass don't usually do that. I've not seen it on a double monk, but personally I'd prefer to have those elasticated too for quick and easy removal.
