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.

    Sad news. I used to pass by quite a bit. I liked their sign: "probably the lowest priced in the city."

    Looks like things have been cranking at Alden!

    I just got notification from Leffot that my Tobacco Chamois LWBs are in. I've completed the order and used Ground - kinda hoping they're hear by Monday night. I'm heading to SF and it looks like rain - would be a perfect time and place to break them in :)

    That is all the richness and awesomeness of Color #8 for me...

    Something very interesting arrived today from TSM seconds.

    Black shell plain toe boot, Barrie, commando, brass, speed hooks, appears to be 270 storm welt plus flat welted heel. Black edges appears to have been antique then dyed black.

    Marked D5826HC, thought I got the equalet Ryden boot but does not seem like the case. Heel pad just have normal Alden logo. Anyone know who this one is made for? Not major issues I can find, keeping this one for sure.

    Crazy Ravellos bud! Looking great!


    Superb. Just superb, doesn't this make you want to pull out your pair and just wear them?


    For good reason! The Color #8 PCT Boot is a classic. Great with the selvedge and knit sweater!


    Yeah, those be just stellar!


    Brush, Brush, Brush!

    Great looking Ravello LWBs and sweet pairing!


    Terrific pick-ups!!! If your arms hurt, then you aren't buffing shoes regularly enough... ;-)


    Don, you always kill it!


    Le NSTs de Leffot are looking stellar! They have more wear on them than I would expect to see from you (since you have quite the collection)!


    Nice pickup! Those are pretty cool, no clue who they are for to be honest. Epaulet was all eyelets and Leffot does it with the Crepe sole. Could be another US vendor or more likely a Euro / Asian vendor.

    Does not seems like it, it would have marked Frans Boone on heel pad.


    Thanks. I was quite surprised. $475 by no means cheap for sure.


    Some blemishes near left shoe back heel area near the welt, not very noticeable. I brush it quite a bit most went away, will try deer bone/cordovan cream next.


    Nice thanks, but no Leffot logo on heel pad? They just have normal Alden logo.
