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.

    None of my Aldens have come with anything more than a shoe bag. Some not even that (404 Indys)

    Just ordered a pair of Alden for J Crew Cap Toe Cordovan #8 Boots.

    Have to wait until about mid month Nov before they ship however.

    Yeah I just bought a pair of black captoes (AF60) from Adam off the irregulars list. Slight cut on tongue but nothing major in my book and been wanting a black captoe / military boot

    Those modified ravello plain toes are great.

    Which is the Alden retailer that specializes in Modified last?

    Man I'm a big Ravello slut right now. Such a great color for plain toe. Where did you find those #4 boots?

    Jeez, those Ravello and #4 boots are incredible. So are the C&J's (they look new). So jealous. the Ravello modified last PT boot is probably the boot I want the most right now. Great collection!

    Shoes & shirts would be like $586 after VAT deduction if they accepted overseas orders. May get a friend to buy who will be in Holland soon


    Beautiful colors!
