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.

    Normally I'd agree with you, but cordovan is resilient and the minor scrape will buff out. A picture says a thousand words…

    Hey quick question here,

    I've got a pair of Cap Toe J. Crew Cordovan in #8 color. I just got a horsehair brush and was vigorously brushing away near the outside ankle area on my left boot and produces a really rough patch on there.

    Has this happened to anyone else?

    Are there any suggestions to get rid of this?

    Here are a couple of pics of the area.

    Thanks!

    That's quite annoying.

    Any snuff suede cap-toe boots incoming besides maybe J. Gilbert? Wonder if Leffot will re-order theirs.

    I think J Gilbert is doing a snuff suede wing tip boot on commando sole. I'm looking for a snuff suede NST.

    That's glorious to look at. My natural cxl Indys are just starting to crease - it's interesting to observe just how differently calf and shell behave. I realize they can't stay pristine forever, but there's still just a twinge of sorrow as the break in. Of course they become even more comfortable and truly yours, but whatevs.

    Really? Pathetic? See this is the Alden bashing i can't understand. I can understand the OP posting to see what can be done. This is such a simple fix, shoemaker can throw some GG underneath. We don't know how they've been worn, where? We just assume that this is more aweful Alden work. Its a shoe, its on the ground. Its winter time. Sometime...wait...wait...shit happens.

    The missing perf punch is another of these, but don't get me started.


    Congrats and God Bless!


    Great name! And I hope you didn't catch that from the Ravello LWBs you got from me. My son and daughter are also "Irish" twins, she's 4 in June, my son is 3 in September. Now you'll know why 10 PM has become a "late night" for me!


    With our Napolitan genes all we need to do is look at our wives apparently.

    NewYorkRanger seems like a cool guy on these boards, and looking at his profile I see that he's an historian like myself. We'd probably get along famously. But I have to say, especially after watching the end of the game yesterday, that I hate his hockey team.

    I'll just assume, to give the benefit of the doubt, that NewYorkRanger happens to be a rabid Pats fan. In which case, I'll overlook his hockey allegiances, misguided as they may be, and move on. Please Sir, do not mention to me the NY Giants or the Jets.

    I'm certain everyone who works at Alden, just a stone's throw from hallowed Foxborough, agrees with me.

    Go Pats!
