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.

    Seriously, great first post. It does have a lot more mottling... Is this the new Ilcea? If we can expect them all to look like this now I might place another order for brown and maybe plum...

    God, I love the V caps. So much better (and more visually interesting) than a plain cap toe

    Thank you! :)
    As rc121 pointed out, it's the italian oxford model. I referred to model 117 but with a plain toe cap instead of the v-cap. As for the color it is indeed the brown museum, was pleasantly surprised by the amount of mottling myself.


    Thanks man, thought it'd be a good time to stop stalking and start posting ;) I actually don't know if it's Ilcea, although I heard that they changed to Ilcea before I placed my order so I must assume it is.

    I don't know if this is any help but this is a belt in brown museum that I ordered with the shoes. I think this better represents how the color looks "in the wild".

    Yeah, I kind of regret I withdrew from that MTO, especially since it was my idea based on a Mack James shoe model (it is the one mimo arranged, correct?), lol. Wear in good health, gentlemen.

    A quick question re cigar please. Is "cigar" a colour available in both cordovan and calf leather? If only in cordovan what calf leather option from Vass is closest ? Thanks
