    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.

    TSM has a full run of the George boot in #8 on the Aberdeen. Just received mine today and am very impressed with fit and finish..

    Please excuse indoor lighting. The #8 is the typical Horween eggplant. [​IMG]

    Here are some more pictures of my new Ravello LWBs... I have hidden most of them since I have been a little carried away with photographing these shoes...

    Fine score my friend... That's an interesting execution of the Mac break-in method. Do you lay out the towel for each step? [​IMG]

    Thanks RK. They are quite dark, and I am good with that.

    There is the song "Happy Feet" by the great Italian musician, Paolo Conte. Seems an appropriate theme song for this board.

    Nice score, tmw. How is the fit? Did you go with TTS?
    I have a vintage pair of boots in this style - always been interested in the Alden version.
    Congratulations!:cheers:

    I went TTS and the fit is terrific.

    I wear my boots one half size larger than my shoes because I slip a half-sole orthotic into all boots . This also gives me plenty of toe room that I like.

    e.g I wear 7.5D in Barrie LWB but 8D in Barrie LW shell boot, 8D in Plaza shoe and 8.5D in Plaza shell boot, etc.

    So, without the orthotic this Aberdeen lasted boot would have been OK in size 8D. I am 8C on the Braddock, so yes this boot can be worn TTS as long as without orthotic..

    Funny you mention vintage because I had a pair like this about 40 years ago as a teenager. I think they were from a saddlery in NYC.
