    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.

    Add me to the "my heel isn't the size of a softball so please offer something other than the Barrie" chorus.

    Color 8 longwing with antique on a last other than Barrie might get me to buy another pair of Aldens.

    Curious about this!

    How does the Aberdeen last compare to the Barrie? Is it narrow in the toe box or wider?

    Thank you! If the Grant last fits me perfectly with a 10D, should I go to 10.5 here? It's the toe box width that's probably going to hold me back.

    I wouldn't. I wear the same size in Grant and Aberdeen. What I don't know is whether an Aberdeen boot will end up narrower than the shoe as some of the Barrie boots do.

    I know, I love my Tankers and think these are one of the best Alden makeup.

    So here's some more feedback on the speckled chambray. Cloth is beautiful - buttery soft and really interesting visually. It's slightly thinner and a flatter weave than I had imagined but it would seem like a great casual piece by itself or during the summer under a casual sport jacket. Impressed with the collar, which stands up well despite the softness of the cloth.

    However...I echo the sizing issue. This is my first EP shirt of any kind and I think I'm somewhere between a small and medium in the EPLA fit. I'm guessing a small in the EPNY fit would be spot on. The thing is fitted as hell on me and probably looks pretty good but is too constricting to be practical. I'm sleeping on it another night before deciding whether I need to return it. The decision has been made more difficult by the fact that it's gone in the medium (and everything else!).

    I'll also echo the button size issue. They slide out a big too easily, especially considering mine us probably half a size too small. Just some feedback from a relatively new customer that is impressed with everything I've received so far.
