1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Does anyone know of a shop doing a cigar wingtip boot? My boots got accidentally sold to another customer at Epaulet.

    My friend ordered these a few days ago. They're supposed to be delivered on Tuesday and I cannot wait to see them in person.

    Ran across these while scoping out the Moulded shoe site and blog (which isn't all that helpful). Thoughts, guys?

    Unionmade: Trubalance last, neoprene cork sole, 270 degree welt, standard welt you see on Indy boots, wax laces

    TSM sells two Natural CXL boots: the one on the modified last and the plain toe Indy boot
    Plain toe Indy boot: Trubalance last, 360 degree welt, leather soles, no footbalance heel, standard cotton laces
    Modified last Natural CXL boots: similar to the plain toe Indy boot with exception of modified last and 270 degree welt

    Shame they didn't stock a 6.5, those Sloat boots are gorgeous.

    For Barrie and Trubalance lasts you should wear the same (8D). Check to see if it says Trubalance or Barrie last.

    Quick question; how does one find out about all the special make-ups for the different Alden distributors? Is it word of mouth, diligent site checking, or some thread (possibly here)? Thanks in advance, and thanks for all the great photos!

    All of the above. Leather Soul used to have a mailing list for pre-orders but now you have to check the site.

    This thread is a real good tool.
