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,

    Question for our more senior members -- I've never actually seen a shell #4 in person, but occasionally see pictures of it here on the forum. Can someone provide a bit of background about this seemingly mysterious color, and do people believe Revello will become the next #4? Thanks.

    I tried posting this in the Viberg thread but received no response. Does anyone here own anything on their 2030 last? How does it compare with Tru-Balance, Modified or Barrie? I usually go with my Brannock-measured size in E for those lasts, or half-a-size-up from that in D (feels pretty much identical to me).

    I'm going to the Viberg factory, maybe later this month to figure that out. I'll let you know what I find out.

    Awesome! Thanks. I'm also wondering how the boots themselves compare to Aldens. Haven't seen too many comparisons.

    I tried on some Vibergs at Inventory in Vancouver. They're quite nice. Send me a PM and I'll keep you in the loop. Otherwise, let's get back to Alden!

    Will do. Alden question: after seeing those awesome black shell plaintoes in this thread, anyone know anyone selling plain-toe black shell Aldens on the barrie last?

    Yes - a difference in product, method, and frequency.

    Your Hampton size will most likely be your Aberdeen size. If you are a 9C in Aberdeen and a 9.5E in Hampton, I will be completely baffled. If you get two sizes, I would suggest some combination of 9C, 9D, 9.5C and 9.5D. Obviously availability will play a part in whether you can readily get them in C widths.

    I believe Alden SF ships for free, but a trip to Alden NY is a good idea. Nothing beats tryng on the shoes. The crew at Alden NY is very good. They were a big help when I dropped in over there.

    I too prefer the welt left dark. I have color 8 tassels with antique edging (BNelson) - but I left the welt dark. Nice boots.
