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.

    Wow, I love the Mayfair. Is it a C&J benchgrade, and is it still in production? I can't seem to find it in PLal's catalogue.

    There's the strict definition of a wholecut (upper cut from one piece of leather), and there's the loose definition of a wholecut (throat cut from the same piece of leather as the vamp). The Grenson Stowe is a wholecut in the loose sense. Your eyes don't deceive you: it has one piece of leather for the vamp and throat and one piece for each of the quarters.

    kolecho - I got it from PLAL. Last I heard, they had one pair left in 7.5E with double thick soles. I'm not sure when they were made. And, I'm pretty sure they are benchgrade.
