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.

    These last few weeks Mexico has been hit by one hurricane and one tropical storm, if I’m not mistaken, and a third one tropical storm/hurricane is forming near the Gulf of Mexico, so we still have a couple of weeks with a lot of rain.
    I hope that in Guerrero, the rain ceases cause it has already caused a lot of damage there.

    Sorry to know it has been so bad.
    By the way, is your coat "Hecho en Mexico"? It seems that in countries like Argentina and Colombia there are many manufacturers of leather products: jackets, luggage, etc. How is the situation in Mexico?

    Nope, actually it's made in Spain, I guess. Argentina has some really nice items made in leather, I don't know about Colombia. Mexico has some producers of items in leather but they are not very common. The mst well know is Cuadra, they make shoes of various type of leathers, they in fact sell the croc / alligator leather to Gucci and other big names and they make some clothing items in leather, mostly jackets.

    Thanks for the explanation.

    Interesting to know about Cuadra. A quick search reveals that there are crocodile in Mexico indeed (Crocodylus moreletii). :teach:

    You're welcome! I own a few of their shoes, the ones in calf are not the best, IMO, I think they use a lot of part of they animal they shouldn't cause sometimes the leather cracks easily. But the exotics are very nice.

    Sorry, not for sale! Thanks though.

    It's Zara, some years old now. But in essence, it's a variation on a military field jacket in a heavy cotton and there's frequently similar items for sale from one maker or another most seasons. Good luck!

    Betel, that is just nice all around. Excellent fit on the jacket and trousers in particular.

    Yeah. How dare you wear hiking shoes in a casual outfit.
