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.

    Width up, don't size up. But beware higher instep too.

    Because it's off the books? Then you lose the VAT refund.

    They probably don't charge you VAT either.

    It's inconceivable to me that someone wouldn't collect the proper tax. [​IMG]

    After wearing these guys for a couple months I am feeling discomfort still from the right shoe only. It feels too tight, mostly in the toe box. The left shoe feels fine. Can I take these to a cobbler and ask him to stretch the right shoe slightly? Keep in mind these are shell and a wingtip.

    I dont have much experience with Shell but you might be able to. Shell does stretch, albeit very slowly. You might be able to ask Vass for a slightly larger shoe tree in order to stretch it out.

    By the way NAMOR, how many pairs of shoes do you own? You must be a damn millionaire to be buying a pair every week.

    Shell streches, but if Ktown is having problems in the toe box, there is no solution even from a cobbler (you have the toe stiffener which is impossible to strech)
