1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    The reason I "edited my response" to accuse you or whoever else feels accused of "passive aggressive vitriol" should be pretty straightforward. But since it doesnt appear to be, I will put it as simply as possible: I edited it to include that because there were undertones of "why are you making this so difficult and why dont you just do this, and next time do that". I truly appreciate the suggestions and this thread and its members have been a virtual treasure trove of information regarding all men's shoes, and specifically Allen Edmonds. Yet, those were neither prudent nor applicable recommendations to the actual discrepancy I faced with the order itself, nor did they seek to offer advice on how to contact Paul beyond telling me to email (such as actually telling those who wish to contact him his email address) Nevertheless, what has transpired since then is not something I want to go around in circles forever about. If I sounded frustrated or suicidal or whatever other hyperbolic projection one wants to bestow upon me, that is a projection that I cannot waste any further time rebuffing.

    I think people really have to learn to chill out a little bit. It's like once every two days there's a new flame war on this thread. And it is always much ado about nothing.

    The off-topic vendettas are clogging up this thread.

    It certainly has been contentious lately.

    Yes, I have. I did both shoes after about 7 wearings so I've worn them about 3 times since. I'll do them again soon. It seems like stretching is a bad idea.

    When I normally order shell which is MTO I get charged right then. However with Paul's offer she told me when I placed my order last week that my card would not be charged until the shoes are completed. Not sure if that is standard procedure or not, it kind of surprised me, and in a good way.
    Well done Pastor. If you don't mind me asking do you have a shoe in mind for black to complete the rainbow?
    And the third word is??? LOL you know my answer. Very interested to see what you end up with!

    Welcome to the forum - please don't join the ranks of Ghost Members - for you have plenty of great experiences to share (maybe even an e-book in the making).

    I started with your idea of marking the brushes and other products a while ago with the type/color marked on the wood so as to avoid cross-contamination.

    In a recent video on this forum, the member was using a cloth to apply that also had a small corner portion which looked like sand-paper for the edges. I have not seen such a cloth before - unless he sewed it in himself.

    Please add a few more words.

    Yes. I like the activity level in the thread, and the host of new voices lately... but the tone has definitely changed, and generally not for the better.

    Just starting out with the basics here...

    Has anyone tried the "combination tap sole" that A-E has been offering lately? I'm curious because the traditional leather outsole doesn't always mix with the wet Florida weather here, but the rubber seems like it would wear through after a while.
