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.

    What last are the Cigar NST chukka's made from? Is it Aberdeen?

    I think so.
    On the Shoe Mart site they list the black version as being on the Aberdeen.

    Hey Jason... I'm patiently waiting for the UnionMade x Alden Cordovan Captoe Boots [​IMG]

    Okay... after trying on these boots, I feel that they're a bit tight.
    My feet is perfectly happy with the TruBalance last but the Aberdeen last (which these 2 models are on) seems a bit narrow for me.
    I'm going to try and see if lighter weight socks will help the fit because Shoemart doesn't carry the E width for these models and I REALLY want to keep them.

    Greatly appreciate if any folks out there who have experience with Aberdeen last can shed some light
    on whether these boots will eventually give room to accommodate someone flat footed (like me).

    Frickin' Awesome! Great choices.

    You are convincing me. Those navy would look damn fine with white denim. I think snuff is a great fall color, so I may delay those and do the navy..
    You may want to contact Tom at LS because he said he had some navy suede coming out soon too....

    Did you ever order that blue wingtip boot from Leffot?

    Hmmm, I've got those Ravello boots too. I wear a 10.5D in trubalance and 11D in Aberdeen.
    The Aberdeens are a narrower fit but they were comfortable from day one.
    They haven't really loosened up much.

    Does anyone know if Alden is currently doing a longwing in black calf? I've seen the shell but am interested in calf.

    Yes, they're on Aberdeen last.

    I solved my fit issue.
    Basically switched from an athletic in-sole to a dressy custom insole and they fit perfectly.

    ^Good to hear. I withdrew my Ultimate Indy from the B&S after slipping in an in-sole. I didn't know what I was thinking![​IMG]

    black Alden longwings: http://www.leathersoulhawaii.com/

    Yeah, saw that too. Looking for all black minus the natural edging. I intend to use the shoes for office wear. Saw some in Japan but hoping for somewhere in conus.

    ^I know you're not looking for shell, but the BBBF ones are really nice. Really considering picking those up.
