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,

    Hunting green suede chukka x AoM. Totally unlined, flex single oiled sole - these are like slippers.

    The only explanation for these is that you're personal friends with the Horweens and Aldens...

    Probably the Leydon last like all the other unlined suede chukkas. I saw these as Alden SF but I think multiple retailers carry them.

    Grain shell is the real rare shell material IMO. Great shot. On a related note, @mdubs should convince some retailers to stock some!

    Thanks. These are indeed Leydon. I thought about sizing up a width, but I went TTS on these and love the fit. Like gloves.

    Aberdeen, speed hooks, leather soles.
    Product number starts with a 6, I'm guessing 96 or 06.
    Heel pad may have had the original retailer, but it is no longer legible. I was lucky to buy them from a fellow Alden addict. These don't fit him, he wears a bigger size. I got them a few weeks ago and plan on sending them to restoration soon.

    Side note, coworker just commented on my shirt. She told me she had never seen me wear black before, she's right.

    Congrats. Probably 06, that's around when Alden had grain shell. It may have been a single MTO, most grain shell was.
