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.

    Thank you Spiff for your words of encouragement! I do feel more complete with the 986, as an Alden enthusiast. I only own 3 AE and each are solid in construction, comfortable, and look good. However, I can not say that for many AE. (No offense intended to our AE enthusiasts on this thread) Nevertheless, a nice, made in the US, more affordable alternative to Alden.

    Curious what AE you own?

    I've ordered two pairs(Neumok and Maccallisters) and was not impressed with the finish and comfort and ended up returning them.

    Very nice start to a Monday Johnniegold. I like the nice rolls you've got going on there.

    Good point about the 563. That certainly does complicate things and cause me to reconsider my argument.

    I've basically been out of pocket the past two weeks, time to get back involved in the thread... Here are my two latest acquisitions:

    Leffot Color 8 & Alpine Grain saddles (I've worn this with a khaki suit a few times recently, the combo really works)
    Black NST in Aberdeen (picked this up while visiting Alden SF - I like the uniqueness of the NST pattern and cordovan combined with black, this will get casual and formal wear)

    A bit off topic, but these are my first MTO shoes from Edward Green in midnight blue calf, more pics somewhere on Men's Clothing Classic Menswear

    Midnight blue, quite adventurous for initial mto buy. Well done indeed.

    The more I see that Leffot saddle the more I like it
