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,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    Do you mean are the second in the store the same as in the irregular emails? I think they have more in store than they put in the emails. It's still hit-and-miss (I didn't find anything when I was there), but my impression is that you have a better chance of finding something of interest in-store.

    A while back we discussed how close Alden Cigar shell was to Allen Edmonds brown shell. My Allen Edmonds arrived last week and here's a side by side photo with my Alden Cigar shell Chukka's. I really can't see any difference IMHO. Those of you that were looking for Cigar shell belts. My AE belt also arrived and it too is the same as an Alden for a lot less. You have to custom order the brown shell belt from AE. It's not listed as an option, but you can custom order it. It will cost you $10 more for the custom order but its worth it. The buckle it comes with is nickel and nice quality.

    See Ya,
    Steve

    I'm sorry - I really hate to be that guy but either of these posts can get you banned. I appreciate trying to give a heads up to the Alden community, but create a classified ad and stick it in your signature. Posting FS stuff in here will incur Fok's wrath.

    Thanks for the tip. Just checked...closest they had was a LW in whiskey size 8E which would be too big for me. 8D is my best size and is already pushing it for me in some Alden Barrie shoes. Let me know if anyone has any others in 8D or close.

    Now those are some nice short wings Uncle. Their Ravello color really lets you see the detail in the design.

    I learned something last weekend when I visited Alden-SF. I'd never tried the Grant last so I tried on the #8 straight tip boot. I was told that the Grant last is essentially the Barrie last with a sleeker toe. That was news to me.

    Thanks for the information. Considering that AE doesn't let you wait 1 yr to get your shoes (at least not yet), I've been wondering if it's time to pull the trigger and get a brown chukka.
