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.

    Ha. Thanks I guess. I do wear them outdoors. Pick a shoe and I will send a picture of the bottom of them. :)
    Mac, those Cigars look amazing. That's such a rich shade of Cigar. Hope that they took good care of you today!
    Those look great. Good choice. Definitely want to have the L trees in them.
    Don, those Ravello NSTs are just stellar Don. I love them.
    Good choice.
    Looking good in your Snuff Slippers. Those are some good looking Chukkas. Hope that you stay in Chicago long enough to see the opening of Leffot.
    Thanks DV!
    Your Unionmade Color 8 WT Boots are looking good bud and have a great shine on them. Looking great! Hope that you enjoyed them.
    Thank you very much! -Mike

    I hope it's ok to post this here in the Alden thread - I think it may be of interest to some of the folks here:

    Limited Opportunity to join current MTO for the iconic LINDRICK Boot.

    [​IMG]
    photo credit: @NAMOR

    This MTO is days away from going into production. There was a last minute pull out. First come first serve.

    Here are the specs:

    Crockett and Jones
    325 Last
    Dark Brown Shell Cordovan (color may be darker than photo above, as there are variations in C&J's / Horween's brown shell)
    Double Leather Sole
    Storm Welt
    Dark Antique Sole Edging
    All Eyelets
    Price: 583.36 GBP + 30 GBP for US shipping. The total including shipping comes to approximately $800 with the current favorable exchange rate. This is a bargain for a boot that would sell for $1000+ if it was being sold here in the USA.

    Please PM me if you want to join.

    I have a question and I was ignored last time I asked so I am going to give it another shot. I have a pair of Alden Chukka (WSC) up for sale and I listed them in the classic men's wear section. Not a lot of views. Where do you guys put your boot listings? In the Classic Section or the Street Wear and Denim section? Thanks for any advice. Back to the so so nice pictures.

    Classic Menswear for all my Alden listings. Sometimes it just takes a little while to get interest. I wouldn't worry about it. They'll sell, Whiskey always does.

    Whiskey Wednesday.... Circ 2012. These have more orange than the last two years productions. Also, all stitching even around the sides are white unlike the newer years, the new Whiskey shells are more tan in colour. I love the artisan in the shoe line... change is good. My old Whiskey LHS's vs new look very different.

    I've got three new make-ups I'm going to announce via email on Monday, but I figured I'd throw them out here first.

    These are all on Barrie lasts, and I'm going to close off the ordering on 8/14.

    1) 6-eyelet chukka boot (the "3 1/2 boot") in navy chromexcel on double waterlock sole. Flat welt, color match agatine eyelets.
    2) Regina grain longwing blucher on commando sole. 360 storm welt, antique edging.
    3) Mahogany walkabout plain-toe-boot on plantation crepe, brass hardware, no speedhooks, antique edging, 360 storm welt.

    I do not have photos of these, as none of them exist yet, which is par for the course with new Alden styles.

    Is this too much color variation or is this a desirable patina?
