    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.

    I wonder if Tom at Leathersoul has any hints for us as to what his next Aldens might be....?

    Something in unlined snuff suede perhaps?

    Get on his pre-order list.

    Went to the Alden store in NY this weekend. Almost got a pair of the 990s, but I think I'm going to have to wait another month.

    Wearing my Grant last BB Black Fleece longwings for the first time today. Really like this last - much better than the Barrie. I might get all Mafoo on you guys if I could get the longwing in the Grant last in #8 and Whiskey. Just an honest big-ole gunboat. Really comfortable too.

    I just placed an order for the Indy boots at ShermanBrothers.com and got 10% off with the code: Stimulus.

    No tax and free shipping on orders $50 or more. Sounded like a good deal $288 shipped.

    Went by the Alden Shop in SF today. There's some cigar shell captoes on sale for $399, but not in my wide-foot size. Also spotted some #8 chukkas w/commando soles on clearance, again, not in my size.

    What sizes for the Chukkas and how much were they?

    you guys should try navy shoe cream. i darkened up some light brown AEs to a nice rich dark brown color. it doesn't take many coats of cream to get something that looks nice.

    Damn, I was just informed that the regular Indy's are on backorder for 3 months. They said that for the past 6 months to a year or so, the demand has been real high on them so I guess they can thank SF for that.

    I was hoping to get them by this weekend too.

    Those look great! I have the Ultimate Indy's from Leather Sole Hawaii and worn them almost everyday since this past December and they look almost like yours. I brush them every now and then and have treated them with dark brown shoe cream.

    Just curious, but is this new?
    I've never seen it before and it looks like it has crepe sole?
    It is also cheaper at $280 retail, well cheaper by Alden standards I guess.
