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 glad to see new people getting into Alden shoes. It can be a frustrating journey getting the shoe you want (especially in the rare shades) but patience wins out. Some of us have been buying Alden shoes for a long time and can remember the "glory" days of walking into Madison and having rare shell galore staring back, unfortunately times change and demand is high. The best advice I can give you is to read the thread daily and don't be afraid to make some calls. Both will yield excellent results!

    i would consider the second hand market. ebay and our sales forum.
    unless you're barrie 10 D, in that case used shoes are disgusting.
    nothing plain about 990s. such an awesome shoe. nice buy.
    i wear bb lhs and van lasted loafers tts. bbs fit my feet better.
    wow, great boots ds
    fantastic shoes. i brushed 4 pairs yesterday after work.
    thanks for the info. enjoy them unis.

    Not sure about the cap toes. Pretty sure the tassels are on Aberdeen last and the PTB are on Barrie.

    I can never remember brooks lasts- don't count out snap, copley and leydon as possibilities here. Sorry OP- I don't know the answer with any certainty without searching.

    I don't know the BB lasts that well. Some are made in lasts exclusive to BB. Email Alden and they will almost certainly reply with a few days.

    general@aldenshoe.com

    I sent them a note about the BB Black Fleece Shell LWB and they confirmed it was in the Grant last within a couple of days.

    Yep, contacting Alden is the safest way to confirm about the last!

    Guys I am thinking of a black shell penny loafer
    Alden 987 can last or the brooks brothers low vamp shell cordovan penny loafer or the unlined one which I figured was just like the 987 but unlined
    Any suggestions on the difference. I normally wear a 11 in a Barrie last ans 11.5 in most other brands was thinking 11.5 here to

    Arg - those are NST's right? What were the specifics of the makeup and who had it?

    (they look great!)
