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.

    Cheers,

    A unique kiltie make-up an extra perf wingtip from Beams along with some vintage Atoms (none of the pics are mine). I really love the large punching on the Atoms, and the finishing seems a bit more refined than today's output.

    Thank you, I don't actually own them yet. I figure I should be able to get them looking half decent.

    What do you guys use for shoe trees for your Alden boots? I have lots of regular shoe trees, but no boot trees... but I'm not sure if that's important for boots that just go over your ankles?

    I just use standard shoe trees on all my Alden boots, seems to work fine for me.

    Some of the guys in my office wear those same shoes, but with tassels on top of the kiltie. Tassels, kiltie, short wing. Only other difference is that they are not two-tone. Either all black or burgundy (they call burgundy cordovan). Needless to say, I don't live in the most fashion conscious city, but at least I can say that I'm not originally from here. People also wear striped shirts with striped suits and striped ties. I could go on for days...

    This fashion mistake is committed by many men, in many cities. And it's always unfortunate.

    Deer boning should help. Try Google " deer bone cordovan".

    A little polish (gasp! on cordovan!?!?) will go a long way with that kind of surface abrasion imo. As always a good amount of brushing too!

    Another possible alternative is to have Alden re-dye the shoe if/when you send them back for refurbishing. This might be worth consideration if the aforementioned suggestions do not resolve the scratches. Good luck!
