    Is the Ecton made to Top Drawer standard?

    Thanks Ed! Sorry about that, is there an easy way to reduce the image size without using an editing tool and reposting all the jpegs?

    Nope. The Kingsway and Falkirk that are due in March are, though.

    The Ecton is beautiful. Did you get your Scafora's yet, or will you have to wait a few more months like me?

    Thanks Panzer. I just got an email from Scafora saying he won't be in NYC this month. So, it looks like I'll have to wait until March for my final prova and then hopefully get the shoes in April. So it looks like we are in the same boat.

    I guess it depends on who is hosting your images at photobucket you can resize and still maintain the original link. Can't say that I have ever tried it though. Nice to see you back!

    Great to see you back; the place just wasn't the same without that carpeted backdrop. Perhaps its my screen, but those seem like some awfully BIG shoes.

    You can't really wear all those shoes, can you? I'd be afraid to have a collection as large as yours, out of fear that I'd never be able to choose, and consequently would never be able to leave the house; they'd find me fully clothed, shoeless but with 17 pair that could have worked just fine laid out in front of my corpse.

    Keep up the good work, my man. That carpet is truly magical!

    As I sit here contemplating several career opportunities and wondering what direction I should head in over the next few years, it occurs to me that the answer is really quite obvious---whatever the hell aportnoy does to amass such a continually stunning shoe collection. [​IMG]
