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,

    Thanks Uncle. I suppose I should have clarified that I'm not much of a baseball fan in general, so I don't really have an opinion either way on the Dodgers.

    No offense Uncle, but the bums from Brooklyn that are now in LA are overpriced and terribly under-performing as of now. Long season though, I suppose.

    No, I checked sizing after the fact and figured they'd be too small. Enjoy them!

    (just wanted to sound snarky)

    I corresponded with them via email about size availability and then went in to buy from them in person. Had a nice chat with Voltaire the manager. Have you tried calling them?

    Good experience. Would do business with them again.

    Call again. The sales rep named Voltaire helped me into a pair of whiskey LWB's a few weeks back. They didn't have a lot left - keep trying. Someone will pick up.

    PAS a local clothier has the full strap loafer available in what the salesman described as a carmel color over the phone. Not sure if Whiskey or Ravello, Aberdeen last and he said had quite a few, unfortunately not in 11.

    I've never seen anything other than a heel width that was 2 widths narrower than the midfoot width, like A/C, B/D, C/E, etc.

    So, why when I bought the alden whiskey ptb recently from FRANSBONE ,I found a paper for maintaining inside from ALDEN, which recommends
    ALDEN color 8 Paste wax for the above pair?
    Is it wrong???!!!!

    I believe that is the standard "how to care for cordovan" brochure that is included with all cordovan shoes... Yes, ignore the color recommendation in that brochure

    Yes, it is. Simply look at the color of your shoe and the color of that wax and I am pretty sure you would never want to put that on your shoe.
