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'm not certain there is a flaw. Keep in mind everybody has 2 feet that are different sizes. In many cases the width ias too wide,
    and the length is too short. I'm not saying you don't have a flaw, but not saying you do. Many of my shoes/boots have side wrinkles. yours have it on
    the right...just not as bad. Is the shoe laced tight enough on your left shoe? I see plenty of width left to tighten it based on the gap of the flaps. The crease in the vamp
    looks right. Should you be a width more narrow? We need more info on how the shoe fits and branch sizing. In some cases the last does not fit the foot.
    good Luck!

    Steve,
    I know what you are referring to (sizing issues regarding width), but having been in the Alden game for a while now and having experienced the same issue as this gentleman, I can state with fact it is seconds-worthy. Definitely a manufacturing defect. It's almost as if the shell has fully separated from the lining during stitching and the end result can be a massive "bubble" between the shell and backing. Unfortunately it's not as fun or cost-effective to deal with as bubble wrap!

    So who's got black Shell pitt boots (9D or 9E) just sitting in their closet...all sad an unworn? I know this is a popular boot, but never see any pictures on here of people wearing them. I'd be happy to wear them for you.

    I understand and agree if you can feel the gap the way you describe is likely a defect. TSM should be able to get things right for you.

    Steve, your new Tankers are looking superb. I hope that you enjoy them in good health!
    Those Cigars are just stunning D! I hope that they took good care of you today!
    Ha! I hope that she has a good time and has some time to enjoy it! I think you are better off that it isn't a real store!
    Sounds like a good strategy! There are a few of us SD Aldenites.
    Ha! No offense, but that's a long drive with someone you don't really know! ;-)
    Very nice looking Cigars! Hah. Hope that you had good weather!
    Looking good BK! Looks well loved!
    Your Leffot Boots are looking absolutely stellar!
    No Pitt boots here. Not looking too shabby in them Cigars. -Mike

    Never had anything in Hunter Green suede. These are from Yenni from Brick and Mortar. Longwings on Barrie with a flex sole. Super comfortable. Easy to pair casual or dressed up. I believe she has a reorder coming in July.

    I couldn't go too long with them hammered.
    This smooth chamois is relatively impervious.

    Best post in a good long while. Most posters seem to have too many shoes with barely any wear on them. These are spectacular.
