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,

    All hail to the King!

    I don't know if Mac is my uncle -- many days it is all I can handle and then some to deal with the actual relatives I do have -- but Mac certainly is wise, and has good taste, as to his Aldens!

    What a great find. Great, classic look.
    What a great story.
    What great results. Congratulations.
    Personally, I love that long wing tassel loafer style. I would really love to have these in snuff and tan suede.

    The extra stitch is functional in a Norwegian-welt shoe (see below). Goodyear-welted shoes use this as a decorative stitch as Organika said. The waterloc sole is referring to the oil that the leather is saturated with to make it more waterproof. Oil and water don't mix... there's nothing more to it than that.

    based off the last few days the reason there is no rare shell available is because Uncle Mac and MrDV seem to have acquired it all...

    A new member of the family arrived yesterday. Nothing fancy, nothing exotic. About as basic as they come, but a model I had overlooked in search of her exotic cousins.

    Alden's LHS, in color King

    Sazon,

    my 986's are one of my most worn pairs. They go with everything.

    I have been searching for a pair with antique edge but have not had any luck. I was thrilled when Leffot said they had received confirmation and were moving forward, but now due to the scarcity of shell I guess they have decided to allocate towards something else.
