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,

    Victor - It looks as though we are both dealing with a very similar climate; you in Russia and me in Canada. How do you handle the issue of dress shoes in the snow? I have a pair of Swims overshoes (and other overshoes) which I wear - I'm assuming that you do too and that you have removed them before having photos taken - am I correct?

    Victor,

    Fantastic blog. You and I have very similar builds and you have a great sense of what works with your frame.

    I hope you start a Tumblr. Keep the pics coming!

    Winter and fall I wear rubber-soled shoes: Dainite, Commando.
    And as shoes on a double or triple thick leather sole.

    Since I move the car, the shoes usually stays clean.

    And I use for walking shoes from Red-Wings, Timberland, North Face and other

    Several of these have some bad fits in the shoulder. I'm surprised no one picked up on this. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Yes, this problem is, you're right.

    Periodically I gain weight and there is this problem.


    Here's a photo of overweight:

    Here's a picture of normal weight:

    So I always have to be in good physical shape.
    As soon as I gain weight, then the problems begin with the planting of clothing.

    If you mean the brown suede portfolio with crocodile straps, this portfolio is my friend brought from Italy.

    I also like the dark brown smooth leather one you posted just now, and the lighter caramel-ish colored one you post often. Care to share details on those?
