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,

    Maybe Fishball has a wood shop at home and made it himself?

    I'm tempted to get a couple more because I think they're a great buy, especially for tromping down gritty HK pavements.

    from what PG showed here, i would admit, that they are a good alternative to fill up ones rotation.

    the welt/frame around the toe is a bit too exaggerated for my personal preference, but this might be a preference from PG. it also could be the angle of the pics, but it's still visible on the close up's. anyway.

    sometimes you are tempting for a certain style and then you find out it's not exactly, what you want. i would be bothered if i had spent a fortune on such an "experiment".

    lucky guys you are to have places like zee around.

    I wish I know how to make it.
    I do have few old wood lasts at home and try to modify.
    Yes, its all about money, actually many last factories are located in Canton.
    And yes, this pair is a copy of my Kow Hoo last.

    +1

    I had mine sanded down significantly.


    I just placed an order for a pair of brown wingtip bluchers on a relatively sleek last. Let's see how this turns out.

    As promised, my new wingtip derbies from Zee's. Made a couple of adjustments to the last: taller toe box, tighter fiddled waist, higher vamp. The result is a more voluptuous shape. The shoes were originally unpolished since I don't trust their polishing techniques. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Nice shoe, I think it will look better if the medallion is punched a bit tighter.

    They look fantastic. Any pics of what they looked like before you polished them?
