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.

    There are some little boys in the S&D forum. Not to worry. I went through the revision history and reset it to how it was earlier today. I've also locked it so anyone can view it, but only I can update it. For those of you already on the list, if you have a Gmail account, let me know and I'll send you an invite to be able to edit it as well. For those of you who do not, PM me and I'll make the changes for you.

    Count me in for this one if it ever comes to be. That is my favorite style of shoe that Alden makes. I think it loks best on the Plaza last.

    So...

    Five eyelet perforated straight tip balmoral shoe:
    Ravello shell, Plaza last, blind eyelets, Antiqued edging, 270 degree flat welt, Leather sole or Flexwelt, or double waterlock

    I agree with everything you put, except for the sole, I would prefer the standard leather sole to the flex welt/oiled leather sole. I could either do a thick single leather sole or a double leather sole on this one. Too bad Alden doesn't do a bevelled waist on any of their soles.

    Yeah regular leather sole would be good. Are standard Alden leather soles double or single?

    Double is more common, but they'll do single as well.

    It depends on the style. For example, double is more common on bluchers and boots, single is more common on balmorals (like the make-up we are talking about).

    The "ravello things" are nice. What do you mean specifically by "options"? Are you talking about the different possible makeups, or the choices on those makeups? Examples of this are types of leathers, welts, eyelets, soles, edge trim choices and color of stitching just to name a few.

    Posted in the other thread already but will reiterate support for Ravello cap toe.
    Prefer barrie and actually prefer non punched cap.

    Which options do you want to know more about? I'd be happy to bring you up to speed.

    Well, this actually. There is a lot involved when it comes to "configuration". And I don't know half about it...

    For instance, what is a last and what is a Barry? :p

    My English is quite good, but this goes beyond the limit of my understanding.

    By the way, when I searched for the Ravello on the internet, only some lowtops were shown, not even close to the thing posted in the first post.

    A last is a wooden form that a shoe is built on. It pretty much determines the shape of the shoe, so if you are requesting a specific last, you are requesting a specific shape for your shoe.

    "Barrie" is the name of one of the more popular Alden lasts. It is a wider round toe last that looks good on casual boots, and it fits about a half size big compared to your actual foot measurement.
