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.

    Cheers,

    Hey buddy, glad to see you on SF. This is how I got bitten by the shell bug. Be careful. It's addicting! [​IMG]

    AoM 40218HC #8 Barrie Commando Antique Storm Welt 9D. This seasons boot, not sure if I am so enamored with the Commando Sole. Shoot me a pm if interested .. I might part with them. I believe they were 782 plus tax and license. Haven't posted in buy and sell yet as ambivalent on the sole. They feel hard to me vs regular double leather soles. Do they ever loosen up? This is a stiff shell as they don't show any roll.

    Here is a pair I got from the Shoemart sale recently. These are size 9E. The color and fit on these is great with some inserts. I am guessing a 9D would have fit me as I also wear a 9D in the barrie. Still debating if I will keep them or not.

    And some comparison pictures with the 9.5D JCrew PCT boots. Granted they are not the same size but should give you an idea about the shape of the last. Not very exited about the shape of the last. The PCT boots look sleek next to these..

    Anyone ever hear of Alden doing plaza last with commando soles? Would it look stupid?

    Specifically looking for black shell wing tips, exposed black eyes and hooks.

    The plaza FransBoone Indy with commando is killer! Wingtip will be just as nice!

    For what it's worth, while not shell, the recent TO Tie Guy Snuff suede WT boot ran by Epaulet is plaza/commando also.

    At least I know they have done it. Wonder if Yenni or someone would take that on?

    Hey Disco

    We introduced a full line of Plaza last commando sole make-ups around 2000-2003 (about 8 different styles). You can see some of them here: https://www.alden-of-carmel.com/the-alden-of-carmel-story.htm#s_102

    When we started working with J.Gilbert Footwear around 2007/2008, we basically turned the Plaza last make-up business over to them, and worked with them to design the Plaza last commando sole boot series: Color 8 Plaza Commando Sole Wing Tip Boot, Color 8 Plaza Commando Sole Plain Toe Boot, Color 8 Plaza Commando Sole Norwegian Front Boot, Color 8 Plaza Commando Sole Straight Tip Boot, and Black Shell Cordovan Plaza Commando Sole Medallion Tip boot.

    Brick + Mortar is now taking over these styles, so if you are interested, the person to contact is Yenni.

    Those daytrippers are so ugly. I would be doing you a favour by taking them off your hands!
