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.

    Hey, anyone have pics of snuff suede boots with some real wear? Curious what the color and patina is after months or years of use...

    Thanks.

    You bring up an interesting point, Tifosi...how much would you pay? What if we got a group together who was willing to pay a premium...and took it directly to Alden.
    I would bet we could get 100 orders for a #4 makeup out of this thread. Let's say many might pay from 800-900. That would be an order for 80-90 thousand dollars! I would bet that order would rival many smaller Alden retailers orders per year and would make Alden take us seriously. Perhaps we could get someone like Mac to be the liason (if he isn't already!). I'm thinking something like a Gustin jeans model. We could probably even set it up as a Kickstarter if we got Alden's blessing. I have to believe that if they had a single order for 100 pairs of boots, they might at least take notice.

    While I understand the idea of paying a premium for #4, I'd think offering to pay shell boot market price directly to the manufacturer would be just as convincing in the assumed quantities.

    #4, I would probably be willing to pay in excess of 1k TBH.

    I think this is the general sentiment on this thread. Of course, we could offer retail price, but I think offering a premium (even small) would catch their attention.
