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.

    Yes, the black shell captoe bals are the Hampton last. Quite a comfy last, with more arch support and a narrower waist than the Barrie.

    I hope was hoping to get some opinions on my next purchase. I'm wanting to get a dark brown Alden wingtip boot with a commando sole. I could get Alden of Carmel's AF84 Dark Brown Calfskin boot, but I've never seen how this leather looks in person after it's been worn. I'd be insterested in a Brown CXL wingtip boot, but all I've seen is Leathersoul's with the regular sole. I already have their Ultimate Jumper in Brown CXL that I'm gonna need to have resoled with a commando sole, part of me wants to find a pair of their CXL wings and have it resoled as well. Would CXL Jumpers and CXL Wings be redundant? One pair would probably go sitting if I had two in the same exact color. How does heir normal brown calf's character stack up against the CXL?

    Always been curious how long suede Aldens would last, so I guess I'll start the process of finding out.

    Cheers!

    I'm in the market for the basic shell LWB right now. I called Sherman Bros and they wouldn't give me the 15% over the phone. Did I say something wrong?

    First make-up that I've seen where the crepe sole doesn't bother me. Those look like they will be mighty comfy. Unlined, yes?

    Looks like they are leather lined according to the description. But yeah, they look great huh? I hope they hold up like other Aldens.

    What's a good place to procure some v-tips in either calf or cordovan? Is the v-tip largely a Japanese fad? I know leather soul had their run several years ago, but I havent seen anything similar from any other US dealers. I am fond of the v tip look...

    If this is what you are looking for, it's on Alden Madison Avenue's webiste. Call for availability:

    Moulded Shoe also does what I believe to be a v-tip.

    As does Leather Sole on occassion.
