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.

    Long time lurker, first time poster. Just received my Ravello Wing Tip boots from Shoe Mart today, pictured above with my #8 Cap toe for J Crew, and 403 Indys from Alden of SF. When I started reading here that Ravello was disappearing and realized that Shoe Mart was just about out of every size of Ravello Wing Tips I just had to pull the trigger. I love my #8 but my goodness the beauty of Ravello up close... really blew me away when I pulled them out of the box.

    In my experience, 9D/9.5C in Barrie = 9.5D/10C in Aberdeen, and in Hampton, and in Plaza.

    Thank you.


    Thank you.


    Thanks. It's still the unicorn of the Alden shell world. Looking forward to seeing pics of the TSM #4 captoe boot when it drops.


    Thank you.

    It seems that you either love or hate the shell chukka. The barrie lasted cordovan chukka catches some serious criticism on this thread, but some retailers have said that the cordovan chukkas are among their best selling styles. I personally love Alden's chukkas in all materials - I have two in cordovan (whiskey and cigar), one in chromexcel and one in suede. Chukkas can look very clean (similar to PTBs under pants) but are also easy wearing and comfortable.

    Thank you. The chukka is either love or hate and I love 'em.

    If you can swing it, I recommend the tassels. Alden's tassels are iconic, but I don't feel that they get enough love on this thread. Mac has some great tassels, my ravello taseels are one of my best Aldens, and some of the broken in color 8 tassels I have seen on this thread look outstanding
