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.

    Thanks for that post! I've been wanting to see a 'real' photo of those. So many of the vendor photos leave a lot to question. The depth of color is great...sure makes me want to go buy a pair.

    2nded!? This was one of the main reasons I started investing in the brand... :censored:


    I'm sorry, but that is ridiculous. That means you hire more workers because you have obvious demand for your product. You don't shave off details that customers have expected for years.

    This just simply can't be true. Not offering recrafting would be almost suicidal

    That's the word.


    Thanks. The red micro soles are bummer. Could a cobbler re-sole these with a leather sole and a wood/heather heel? How does the Trubalance last compare to the barrie?

    Sorry about that. Poor cutting and pasting. And I would think they must have some stock of what they show on the website, buy you have to call to ask.

    Makeup looks like it'll be: Flat welt, blind eyelets, double sole thickness, antique edgetrim. It's currently 4 Waterlock vs. 5 Commando vs. 2 Leather (but leather and waterlock look essentially the same...).

    I saw the Unionmade model this evening on display and on the feet of the salesperson who helped me. They looked wonderful and this is coming from someone who does not really like Indy's or even red brick soles. Very cool looking combination.

    Not specifically alden related but just wondering about The Shoe Marts free shipping, is it insured for the full value? I'm about to order some expensive Shell aldens and need to know if I need to upgrade the shipping...

    Dumb question, but those are shell cordovan, right? I was looking at those this evening. I heard that there was also a PDF sizing guide that Alden came out with.

    Yes, they are definitely Shell Cordovan. Haven't heard about the PDF sizing guide. Sounds like it could be useful.

    That's awesome info. Modified/Barrie last so if I rock a 10 usually, 9.5D sounds like it will be my best bet. 680 usd seems to be the going price on the LWB cigar model

    Killing the recraft program would be such a serious misstep that I can't believe it is true. Tom, do you have any confirmation on this?
