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.

    Looking forward to seeing those pics after some wear.

    Bontoni's aren't everyone's cup o' tea.

    Don't let Kermit get you down! It's not easy being green.

    imo, bontoni like several other italian brands, stefano bi comes to my mind, cater to a clientele, which isn't sensible to the quality of construction. this isn't a bad thing, but can't be overlooked.

    what do you mean by this? Stefanobi makes very nice quality Goodyear & Norvegese stitched shoes. One need not be a fan of the Norv, but it is definitely a quality construction... especially done by Stefanobi.
