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,

    So you're saying that now Alden isn't even limiting themselves to product-wide errors, but in fact specializing in offending customers on an individual basis?:evolve:

    Wow -- these look absolutely fantastic. Since color 8 is one that I don't have, I may have to try to get a pair of these.

    Those are fantastic. Medium brown paste wax or natural sunlight exposure?

    I know that this is an Alden thread, but I'm gauging interest on how many people would want a "Thor Boot" made in Ruby Shell Cordovan by Carmina.

    I am sending them a Barrie lasted boot to recreate. The boot will have the toe box and width of an Alden Barrie, but the quality of a Carmina.

    I own 15 Alden Shell Boots/Shoes, so do not think that I some Carmina guy poaching. I'm sick of the cordovan shortage and the quality control over at a certain Massachussetts based company.

    All Boots will be made in Horween Shell with a leather Sole. Was thinking about possibly Dainite, but leather would be my first choice.

    The shell is Ruby colored.

    I always felt that Carmina Boots were too European. Too narrow, too sleek in the toe, too high in the upper and I never liked the eyelets. They were just too formal. I am going to send them two pairs of my boots and these will be the perfect boot that every Slden fan has been waiting for. I am not going to be profiting from this. All payments will be made directly through Carmina.

    I am simply going to make sure that the boot is made like the boots we love. As I said, A-----n samples will be shipped to Spain. I just figured that they're not going to make continuous runs of this boot and I am just gauging interest.

    I did a similar thing with Viberg in Whiskey Cordovan and they turned out amazing.

    I've been talking with some guys on this board who I respect to make sure that we get the style right. I have also been talking with Carmina. If a certain number of you show interest and are willing to eventually pay 50% deposit, I'll have Carmina save the shells for us.

    Was going to just do this for 4 guys, but figured why not share the wealth.
