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.

    a bit OTT IMO - looks like you are just using scraps up to make a sample

    What colour is this? Oxblood?

    I am an 8.5D in AE and wear a 41 in the U.

    Shouldn't that be a 42 or is my Vass sizing off?

    Oxblood it says. Love the richness of the color.
    These photos are not mine. Have a look here...for many more. http://www.flickr.com/photos/34481664@N02/sets/ How can you beat these.....just gorgeous shoes. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Did order new pair when visiting Budapest last week. 118.500 HUF (including Trees, including shipping, including 10% cash payment discount). Can wait till the end of Jan'11 for them to arrive.

    Can someone tell me what the F last size would be if I wore a 8.5UK in Lobb 7000 last?

    not to derail, but i am an 8.5D in almost every american shoe and am a 42 U-Last, AP is an 8.5 and a 41.5 U last, just to add to the confusion.

    I am a 8.5UK in C&J 348 and 337, and JL 8000, and G&G DG70, and wear a 42.5 in U, for what it is worth.

    Want, real bad. These, and the blue monks mr. monty has, are my faves. Yes, I remember me saying something about how the brass buckle on monty's monks, if it were transformed to a silver one, would make the shoe perfect, and by perfect, I mean perfect, which doesn't mean that the shoe is still incredibly bad ass.

    Great collection. I'd love to get my sizing down so I can get on teh Vass. Is your loafer on the F last as well? If so, how differently does it fit than your other lace-ups?

    The whiskey shell oxford stands out for me in that line-up; and the loafer is classic - the epitome of the penny loafer style. - The apron looks hand-stitched too.

    kolecho - Those all look superb. Can't wait for my whiskey meltons! One question though: why no derbies? Do the oxfords just fit you much better?
