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.

    I have both. I had the Darltons first, then I bought the Lindricks. I honestly thought I would wear the Lindricks more frequently, but in fact I much prefer the Darltons. The boots have a certain "cool" factor, but in practice there are few circumstances where I want a dress shoe that I don't prefer the Darlton over the Lindrick, and also few circumstances where I specifically want a boot that I don't prefer something more casual or rugged over the Lindrick. I only wear the Lindricks when I am about the put on the Darltons and start feeling guilty about the Lindricks sitting in the closet gathering dust (not literally of course).

    Bucksfan, for as big a shell fanatic as you are, I cannot believe there is any debate here - you need to get both!!

    Thank you for the honest analysis.

    LOL I knew someone would say this - in fact, I just ordered Alden shell Chukkas and got new AE PTBs, will probably get something else before Christmas. I'm planning to get a pair of Alden cigar NST boots sometime soon.... getting the Lindrick would stop me from doing that (and I already have the AE Dalton in walnut shell, which is just a shade lighter than these).

    I am in the lindrick camp. I had some heel slippage with the darltons so I returned them. The lindricks don't have that issue because you can tie them up a bit higher. So much more comfortable to me. I've been wearing these regularly for the last year.

    Depends on the shoe and the wearer. I have some Aldens I'd consider more comfortable than the Darlton/Marlow and some I'd consider less (all else being equal - double leather soles, bluchers, etc.).

    I do, but I chalked that up to the double leather sole. That thing is pretty hard to break in (still stiff after about 6 months).

    Just ordered the Marlow wingtips. My first shells! :slayer: Went through Robert in the RRL thread at the Chicago store. Everything was quick and easy. I HIGHLY recommend going to him in the future. I'm pumped to break in these bad boys.

    Agreed. We should definitely order through him rather than some random customer service rep.

    Depends on the width of your foot. 10.5d is almost perfect for me in the 325 with a bit of toe pinching torwards the end of the day while Aldens are perfect widthwise but a little long

    When did the private sale start? I never received my notification in the mail...

    If I am a 9.5D in the Lindrick, PTB, Marlow Wingtip and Loafer what size would I need in the Tassel? The 9.5 Lindrick is a bit long on me, but 9D in the others felt a bit too snug.

    Thanks

    When I bring up the 30% off site the Marlows are not included. Something I am doing wrong? Strong need for some Lindricks.. damn

    Get ahold of Robert at the Chicago store. He hangs around in the RRL thread and hooked me up with a pair of Lindricks. :slayer: $600 and change.
