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.

    Cheers,

    [Naughty thoughts]Ngrghggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhh.........[/Naughty thoughts] The whole "shoe pr0n" expression is real and having a measurable effect on me [​IMG] That toe is quite something. Noticeable and elegant without being crass.

    More pics of the C&J Tetbury here (albeit in black).

    The dark brown version comes with a dainite sole, and I think the extra thickness balances out the length of the toe a bit better. I'm not sure what "nubuck" is though - it looks a little like corrected grain...?

    Thanks! nubuck: "This is a grain leather that has been slightly brushed on the surface to create a very fine velvet-like appearance. the texture of nubuck is finer than suede." Edit: Wow, dainite. These seem awfully nice.

    Due to the incompetence of a certain hotel's staff, I've received my dark brown Tetburys several weeks late recently. I'm not sure why the skin is called "nubuck" - it certainly isn't like any nubuck I've seen, nor does it fit any definition of it I;ve ever heard. It seems like corrected grain of much better quality than the more notorious offenders. Eaerly tests showed it to be fairly resistant to water. Will make a good rain boot.

    Thanks for the update - pics would be greatly appreciated.
