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.

    I use Colonil Mahogany / Bordeaux on my Vass Oxblood. Saphir doesn't make a burgundy-toned polish as dark as Vass' oxblood, but I guess alternating with black would get you there.

    I use Bergol burgundy and boot black, one coats of each. Or you can use neutral.

    What is it called when you ask for the initials?

    Because I asked Rezo, and he said they don't do it : (
    (He might have misunderstood, that's why I'm asking what you called it when you asked for it)

    I used Saphir Bordeaux (08) on my first pair of Vass, which was in dark cognac. The polish turned out to be an incredibly dark shade, close to black. I stopped using it on my dark cognac shoes as it was darkening my shoes.

    Perhaps this shade is exactly what you are looking for? I'm looking at the polish in person right now and it seems to match Vass oxblood on my screen.

    Ecstacy - I'll give that a try.

    Aportnoy - nice! Cool to see some different makeups.

    How is a man supposed to hide his shoe purchase from the wife when Vass send you unexpected receipts 2 weeks after the shoes arrive, in a branded envelope!! #doghouse
