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.

    Great colors there rtp. The brown suede looks great outdoors. I like the green socks too.

    Thanks Gentlemen. I need to pull them out more often. Not sure why I don't - maybe I like it so much that I want to baby it - only comes out in Summer with sunny, dry conditions where I won't be walking much & there's little danger of getting something spilled on them.

    I am always amazed this doesn't exist. The plant is 45 minutes from Boston and the selection is almost non-existent.

    tifosi - I apologize that this is off subject but, in addition to Aldens, if you have any interest in Barbour, their Boston store (and the shopping district where it's located) is worth a visit:

    BARBOUR BOSTON
    134 Newbury Street
    Boston 02116
    Tel:+1 617-375-7829
    Email:barbour.boston@barbour.com

    It's less than a mile from NRO, whole area being very scenic and walkable.

    FYI for anyone looking for "exotic" Shell Cordovan, I passed by Citi Shoes in NYC today. They have a few pairs of Alden PTBs in Cigar Shell Cordovan

    Hmmmm. Wonder what sizes they have. I actually emailed them a while ago cause I saw them on their site, but they never replied.

    For the Cigar it was pretty slim. I guess their order came in a few weeks ago; I know they had a 7.5E and one or two other sizes but, unfortunately, I can't remember which.

    I was more than happy to add my name to their list for the next order. Give them a call, and good luck

    I called them a few days ago because their website indicated that they had many sizes available. Unfortunately the website was not accurate. I think they had 3 sizes and none larger than an 8.5.

    Isn't this what I observed? The chukkas I tried on in 11D were larger than any 11D barrie shoe or boot I have ever tried on.

    Interesting ...

    I don't believe I have heard of an NST on the Grant. I have heard of, indeed, have owned, NSTs on the Aberdeen, barrie, and plaza.

    If anyone has a pic or a link, PM me. Thanks.

    Many of the high-end shoe sites seem like they were designed when Alden created its first shoe. Probably not a surprise an email didn't get a reply.
