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,

    Wow, great score. I'd take a blemish (or tiger stripes :D ) over 'damaged shell' like a scratch or ripples.

    I got my TSM black shell monks today. I can get away with an 11.5 plaza last w/ insole, but for some reason, the aberdeen is just too big, even with insoles. Serious bummer. Was really looking forward to these. Very sad.

    I am tts 9.5D. My aberdeen color 8 shell monks in 9.5D are among my most generous fitting 9.5''s that I own. But part of that is the nature of the monk strap style which, in my experience, always tends to fit less snug.

    Has anyone made sense of why Alden is saying not to expect any exotic shell colors for the foreseeable future, while other shoemakers, such as Carmina, Vass etc., do not seem to have a similar problem with their equivalents of Alden's exotic shell colors? One of Alden SF's salespersons said that Alden told them not to expect any exotic shells in any style for the rest of the year.

    Shaunw, that's a sweet Horween stamp in your billfold. Mr. George Washington is looking mighty lonely though.

    Great combination from top to bottom. I especially like the shirt. I've been itching for some new madras.
