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,

    nephew,
    the Aberdeen last is Alden's most narrow last in the toe box. the Hampton last is slightly roomier in the toe box. if you wear a suit three to four times a week, you should consider the medallion cap toe which is one of alden's best models in either king or black. the cap toe 9015 can be worn with a casual attire whereas the medallion 2145 is dress shoe model

    This never happens to me. I don't bend my toes when I push the clutch or let it out. I use my ankle joint for the finer movements.


    With all this 9015 love. ..

    Congrats Shawnc. I have the same ones. (These are the shortwing bluchers-barrie, right?) I bought mine new from AoC for about $200 more. You got yourself a great pair of shoes for that price. Congrats my friend and wear in great health!

    [​IMG] It's funny you mention that. I drive a manual. Today I thought to myself as I was holding the clutch, I can feel my left shoe creasing! [​IMG]

    Thank you Uncle. I actually wore my 2145 today. Maybe I do not need another color 8 dress shoe.

    nephew,
    you are asking the wrong person. of course you do not need another king dress shoe; however, you are addicted and you will acquire it along with your king nst

    to be honest, the left shoe looks better. I'll try and remember to take some decent pics, but I'd prefer the right shoe catch up hahah

    I push the pedal with my forefoot, not my toes. Not toavoid creasing my shoes, it's just what feels natural.
