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.

    They've noticeably darkened up just from brushing the heck out of them after each wear. I love the color.

    quick question.

    i think my next pair of aldens will be either a cigar longwing OR a pair of wingtip boots in natural chromexcel, in the barrie last (or grant, but i know that's rare) and leather sole, preferably with the slimmer welt that comes on some barrie boots (like the LS chromexcel barrie wingtip boot).

    i know shoemart sells a cigar longwing, and epaulet sells the brixton boot in natural CXL. are there any other shops/collabs i should be aware of in either of these configurations? thanks!

    Someone really likes his cordovan shoes... I guess having a fetish for cordovan isn't that strange... some of us might be half way there!

    Hello, I'm looking to a Cigar Chukka for my next pair of cordovans. Does any one have pictures of them after they have been worn/used for a while? Thanks...

    I stumbled across this video when searching YouTube for 'shell cordovan'. I don't think these are Aldens but had to share anyway.  Not sure what the deal is?...:

     


    Um, ok. Gross.

    Can we ban Mediahound from this thread. I'd rather not watch his porn again.

    Interesting, yes but I don't think they are very attractive. Those were made for people who have had foot surgery where it's difficult for them to get their feet in and out of other shoes while recuperating. I guess they could be sorta cool in a goth way though.

    You may not have made the video, but you subjected the rest of us to it. I may be relatively new, but I know how to use some decent judgment.
