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.

    This thread is gold, I am in love with what Alden does, I wish I only had more money and better access to their stores. The one pair I have is pictured below, cigar shell cordovan, purchased in december at the Madison Avenue store (fantastic store, really great service).

    Guys, need your opinions on the fit of these Alden Cap Toes (plaza last). Love the shoe. However, I have an unhealthly obsession with always believing my shoes look too big on me. Clown shoe. Let me know what you think of the fit of these. Thanks. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    ^^ this makes no sense. how the hell are we suppose to know how big your foot is and how it fits based on pictures

    yes, they look way too big. size down 4, even if its cuts your circulation off

    need to get my alden issue resolved and sell a few more things. once I do its either ultimate indys or margiela german armys in grey suede... but honestly, I don't see myself paying that much for sneakers.
