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.

    Those boots are awesome but I've had gussets like that f*ck up my hems something severe, so I'd never buy them.

    Look up the balmoral boot porn thread... there are some great dress boots w/ speed-lacers. They are not the issue... it's the shape and detail on the boots... "forking Timberlands" sum's it up.

    somewhere deep in the dungeons of brook brothers corporate, a shoe designer was waterboarded for producing such a monstrosity.

    Good deal, but I just can't pull the trigger.


    Here's why I hate it: I hate that seam parallel the sole that runs across the ankle. It's like a blucher with a bastardized balmoral seam (balmoral in the english sense, not american). Totally wrong. Plus the toe is bulbous.
