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.

    Namor - I know exactly what you mean. I had a pair of 30 year old Barkers which were absolutely beautiful, but stunk to high heaven. They smelled like someone had died, been buried, dug up and then had the shoes removed. The smell wasn't really foul just old mildewey and ancient. I tried everything to get rid of it (including vinegar) and I talked to a few cobblers who tried to help. Nothing at all worked. Nothing. Eventually I pitched them. My feet made their entrance long before I did. After a while, I couldn't wear the shoes because my feet would get itchy. I think this may haven psychosomatic, but it drove me crazy. Also my closet smelled bad while they were there.

    So, the people I have noted with potential interest in the Alderley GMTO in Edwardian are:

    - Me

    - @FrankZ

    - @Steel28

    - @gusvs

    - @tdude

    (- @laufer)

    So if some of the gents would consider making firm commitments we could be pretty close :)

    I am interested in the adder ley boot in that light tan color. In the interests of moving this along I would ask for the following information which I know is available through a search but a search is difficult to do on my mobile: what last is this potential gmto made on and is that last available in widths that are wider than UK E and, if so, can a wider width be part of the gmto? Thank you.

    Anyone own any of the current EG BB makeups, and which do you like? They seem to have many standard models, albeit on non-classic lasts (e.g., Chelsea and Dover on 888)

    Thinking about scoring a pair and would welcome suggestions...

    Last is 202, the only option for the Alderley. I have wide feet myself but the 202 in E fit me fine. An F width can only be possible when 6 people have subscribed for identical specs...

    After the rough winter, Galway cleaning day. I had been sticking with neutral cream & wax on the bronze, but used black on the toe and heel today. A lot of light in the photo...it can appear much darker.

    If you're looking for sizing on the 202, here's what works for me.
    202 - 10.5 G
    Alden Barrie - 10.5 EE
    Carmina Forest in shell - 10.5 EEE

    Hope that helps.

    Sorry, don't have neither Alden shoes nor Carmina. But I'm sure some other gents here or in the Skoak affiliate thread will be able to assist you...
