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,

    If you don't mind Tricker's, Paul and Friends in Sweden still has a few sizes left.

    They end up being about $400 shipped to the US.
    They send via postal so duty is unlikely.
    I've got a pair in transit.

    *break in Alden action*




    i can't believe i'm even going to bring this up as it's never really bothered me when folks do it, and i'm not sure they enforce it very hard, but just a heads up to this poster and anyone else new to the forum:




    *continue Alden action*

    Alden made for J Crew - suede PTB in camel and flex welt/single water loc sole. I love the look but "not" nearly as comfortable as my shell PTBs with the double leather sole.

    One of my first pairs and I would rank it in my top 5 favorite pairs.

    I went with the LeatherSoul pre-order of the #8 short wings since I like an "E" width and it's generally a bit harder for me to find on the shelf somewhere. FWIW, both previous times that I've pre-ordered something in color #8, they came in considerably ahead of what was originally planned. I think it's just the shades like whiskey, ravello, and cigar that have the big delays...

    IIRC, someone was looking for ravello chukkas - Alden NYC just got a shipment in (I had 9.5E on reserve and they called me to notify they had it - I don't need it anymore).

    Also, those suede JCrew bucks up top are incredible. A suede pickup is definitely next for me.

    I just got the Alden longwings from J Crew made on the Barrie last in sz 10. The right foot fits perfect but my left foot is a bit longer. It feels tight on the throat line and makes a sharp crease. My toe seems like its in the right place. I've included pics. Should I get a half size up (thus the right foot will be too big) or will this work itself out with wear? I can still take them back at this point. Thanks.
