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,

    It's actually a dust cover for my Steinway grand piano. Sadly, I haven't played classical piano in years (computer science got in the way). Maybe after I retire I'll play again. :)

    The photos I took of the ravello shells have the shoes sitting on the dust cover of my Steinway grand piano. I guess it does look like a table cloth! Sadly, I haven't played in years (computer science got in the way when I was in college). Maybe after I retire...

    I forgot to mention Alden of San Francisco threw in a free tan paste wax with my shoes. :D

    Tacco makes a leather insert (thinnest), Spenco a thin basic one and then you'll get into thick ones. Go to a shoe repair shop and check out options.

    You're reading the shoe marking wrong. It's B/D, right?

    B is the heel, D is the width.

    Gorgeous! Where did you get them and who is selling or has a wait list for this makeup?

    shoemart had a limited run in random sizes. alden/shoemart ended up canceling the shoe and those that were waiting for their size to arrive were out of luck (me included)
    no word if they will ever be available for pre-order again

    Great looking boot. I tried to pick this up from LS after they were discounted to 300 but they sold out right before I contacted them.

    Try the pedag holiday 3/4 insole - leaves room for the toes, slight arch support.

    Was it tan or brown? Every ravello order I have received from Alden SF has had a brown paste wax enclosed, not tan.

    Finally got myself a couple pair of Aldens. Gotta love the quality of these shoes, quite amazing.

    I've owned a couple pair of Roy's, and they simply don't fit like the Indy trubalance. I've questioned it and was shown the hand :brick:

    Great look man. Is that the A.P.C. Harris Tweed sport coat? If so I've got the same one and I love it.

    Is there any difference other than the stitching pattern on the back of the heel, between the BB tassel moc and the standard Alden tassel moc? Are both on the aberdeen last? Any recommendations between the two? Wanting to pick up a pair of color 8 in either version. Thanks in advance...

    It was tan paste. If I had to guess, I would think brown paste would go with the cigar shell.
