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,

    NATE HUMBLE FROM ALDEN AT LSBH
    On Friday May 24th and Saturday May 25th, Mr. Nate Humble from Alden Shoe Company will be in-store at LSBH to “talk story” about Alden shoes. We will also be releasing a few models to mark the occasion.

    Unfortunately due to the current shortage, there will be no shell cordovan releases this time around.

    From the LS website.

    Yeah, I can't make up my mind if I like the brass eyelets or would prefer the shoes without them. Either way I wasn't going to pass up a chance to get some ravellos

    I dig the brass eyelets. I think it gives it a bit if casual look for the warmer months

    Makes more sense now. J Crew did not get another round in. They just had a few leftover pairs from the run a few months ago

    And just to beat a dead horse, I've found the same to be true for my feet as well. Shell Barrie shoes and shell Barrie chukka boots are all 1/2 size down for me where my Barrie lasted boots were too snug when sized down by 1/2 size. I probably needed an extra 1/4 size for the boots but since that's not possible, I went TTS and added a thin leather insole.

    No personal experience but I've often wondered about them myself. You think a triple leather sole on a shell shoe is a bit overkill?

    You can see the shoe in that listing and more at Ed Morel's site (Panta clothing) and the manufacturer has some additional images and info at:

    Very cool. However, I wouldn't light a cigarette anywhere close to that shoe after thoroughly spraying it down...
