I am in absolute agreement with my learned colleague Mr Hound, they would not work with a black jacket.

I am in absolute disagreement with @Megatron1505.  That tan is so neutral and dulls down further with wear, it'll work with anything.

PS, I have a pair of unworn 25.5 here that I will let go for a song

I've always been crap at matching footwear with outerwear and now I'm even more confused.  Thanks guys!

G, unfortunately I'm a 26 cm in Japanese footwear.  Otherwise I'd be all over that offer.

I totally think they would work with both black and brown leather jackets. That's the beauty of tan footwear.

To modify my statement, @Giles is absolutely correct that they would be fine when well worn in and a bit dirty, I think that wearing them from new condition with a black leather jacket would be too much of a contrast.

Can anyone advise me on how I can view postimage.org pictures clearly? On this forum they always appear blurred for me. This has only happened (I think) since moving to HK and every other host e.g. Flickr, Photobucket... is fine.

Cheers.

@shoque Here's a typical view. I believe Max Power is using Postimage.org.

@Sugar Mountain Looks like a progressive JPEG that doesn't fully load. Pretty damn weird. Can I ask you to try it with another browser? Do you always use the same internet connection?

Sugar, who is your ISP over there, and what speeds you getting? http://www.speedtest.net/ should help you with both.

On my home computer, I'm getting a download speed of 8.04 mbps and an upload speed of 1.42 mbps. However, this issue is happening on my home and work computers as well as using 4G on my mobile. Changing browser doesn't help either.

Edit: I realise the figures above are super slow but I'm sure this is an issue with a particular image host, as all other hosts are crystal clear and download instantly.

I ran the same test at work: 80.23 for d/l and 76.27 for u/l. That's more like it!
