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.

    The better question is -- where the hell is Uncle Mac in all his photos? Is he on a cobblestoned street somewhere along the Paris-Roubaix route?
    If so, the caption should read: "Ravello LWB, Argyles OTC, Roubaix UTF"

    Hello -- I am brand new to this site. I hope it is alright if I ask a question.

    Just picked up my first pair of shell cordovan Aldens in black -- Medallion cap toe on Aberdeen last. I noticed that towards the bottom of the tongue, where the eyelets are sewn into the shoe near the throatline, some of the medallion cut-outs look brown on the inside of the cutouts. It is kind of a silly complaint, as it is only a few circles with brown on the inside, but I am curious if this is a manufacturing issue (cut outs are too deep) or if anyone else has ever noticed this and it is normal.

    Thanks.

    Paul

    I estimate he is in the Northeast based on his mentioning of the weather conditions in some of his posts. If I had to guess I would say NYC Metro area. I have often wondered about his age, occupation and location, but decided its better not to ask, as it destroys the mystery. In my mind, he has a cobble stone driveway.

    To paraphrase Michael Corleone:

    Uncle is a term -- that is used by his friends -- one of affection -- one of respect.

    Hi Paul, and welcome.

    The issue described sounds like one not to worry about. If it bothers you cosmetically, get some Saphir shell cordovan cream, in black, and use a dauber to insert a bit of cream into the holes ("that's what she said"). :D Buff with a soft cloth and the problem should be resolved.
