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.

    Yeah, that's why I ask....cognac, red cognac, 6319 cognac, antic cognac, dark/6125 cognac....it can get a little confusing. If you've got it written anywhere, I'd appreciate knowing for sure!

    Those are from Bonaudo although Illcea is already supplying some museum calf colours.
    As far as I know, Illcea will again solely supply the museum calf once the current stock is exhausted.

    CrackedCrab, you definitely should add tongue pads to both shuus -- the two parts shouldn't meet when laced.

    Arahat, gorgeous boots through and through!

    VR, can you recommend decent ones? The only ones I can find on Amazon get a one star review!

    Ordered them through Vass, so I suspect that their usual lastmaker made them.
