    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.

    blacksamurai30: Quick question, I sent a pair of Alden cordovan loafers in last wednesday using the recrafting service, when should I expect to hear back from Alden regarding the shoes?

    A long time from now. :D

    You will get a postcard that will give you an idea of when to expect them. But add at least 2 weeks.

    July 26 was my 10 week date from the date of their acknowledgment of receipt. And the date of their acknowledgment of receipt was at least 4 days after they actually received them (I had tracking). When I checked last week I was told "They will be shipped out next week." So, in all seriousness, I don't expect them until next week, which will fall between 2 and 3 weeks after the 10 week date..

    First photos of some of my new purchases. I hope to bring my Nikon in to take photos of all of my recent acquisitions on Thursday. But here is my first installment, the Unlined LHS in Color 8 from Brooks Brothers by Alden. I chose to photograph the left shoe due to the presence of the Horween stamp. Hope that you enjoy!

    I guess they need a little polishing/cleaning already.

    Those are actually the exact pair I'm having re-crafted! I found them kinda beaten up for a steal. I'm excited to see how close they get to those pics [​IMG]

    Nice pick-up mdubs. It's the shoe responsible for my shell addiction. Wear them in the best of health.

    Beautiful boots. I would be interested to see more photos to get a better look at the patina. Natural CXL really seems to age nicely.

    Fantastic looking boots! I've been waiting to see a good pic of how the natural chromexel ages; they look great. Will definitely pick up a pair in the fall

    Unc, thanks. I'm keeping them! Thanks to all that offered their opinions, too. These are, bar none, the most comfortable pair of dress shoes I've put on new. Others, there's a little rubbing that eventually settles. I may have to wear a band aid here or there for a while. Not these. Anyone hear of bath slippers with a double sole? These are it!

    Sharp as a tac Don L. I'm liking the way the antique edge looks with king #8.
