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.

    Look at the Alden on Madison website. You will see a few. Also Citishoes has a captoe balmoral in cigar cordovan in a few sizes.

    Anyone know where I can get a cordovan captoe #8 boot in the barrie (8D)? I have the JCrew one on order but would like to find a straight captoe version.

    Love the shoes Uncle! The nst saddle makeup is one of Aldens most distinctive and unique offerings. I wish I had been around during the Pleistocene age so I could have gotten a pair. :)

    Thanks for the suggestions. Unionmade Cigar PTB sold out. Ranger Moc only size 11.

    Fransboone has the cigar plain toe in 10.5 (would have to find out if this is UK or US sizing) but this would cost over $800 shipped---rather not pay that much.

    Leffot has a color 8 PTB with some sizes in stock but not 10.5D.

    Leather soul has nothing in stock or on order.

    Shoemart nothing in stock or on order.

    I'd have to imagine JCREW won't continue to stock this shoe.

    My best bet might be cehcking Buying/Selling or ebay.

    I don't mean to sound like I'm pushing Pelle Line, but I have had good luck dealing with them. Unfortunately the ravello tassels they had did not fit. They do have a #8 PTB shown as in stock on their site.

    Is this the actual length of these jeans, or are you pulling them up to show more of the boot?

    I got them cropped super high, so that length is accurate. The opening is 15"

    That is insane for a pair of suede LWBs. You are right that that makeup should be pretty standard.

    After the delay with the Epaulet Brixton (though I am in on the whiskey order and not the Ravello) I too am done with Alden pre-orders with any retailer except for Leffot. It seems like when Leffot does a pre-order they have already confirmed the makeup so the wait times are not nearly as long (I waited only about 4 months for my saddle shoes and naval boot this spring).

    ^^ With the exception of a color 8 boot from JGilbert, I have never participated in an Alden pre-order. That said, I have a lot of exotic shell models. There is hope.

    The suede LWB delay is a head scratcher.
