    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.

    I know what you mean. They don't look like Aberdeen. I have two pair in Aberdeen and many in Barrie. Hard to compare fit, though, since all my other shoes are E width, but the toes do still look a little narrower even though not as pointy as most Aberdeen. The code in the shoe read 3G23X029 12 followed by 20913 on the bottom line, if that helps at all. The description on the Epaulet page says Aberdeen. I don't know....

    I am virtually positive that Alden DC had those same shortwings but on commando sole.

    Your memory is almost correct. They were long wings, and they do still have them.

    Funny, I had the exact same experience. I grew up in Texas, and I was far more familiar with the Braves than the Astros or the Rangers. I did manage to get a ball personally signed by Nolan Ryan at a fundraiser though. [​IMG]

    newbie, I think they look good, seem to match the natural welt ( I am a newbie as well so I think I am using the right terminology :)) if that's the goal. Gives it a more casual rugged look. What are the other options you are thinking about?

    Anybody who used the JCrew coupon get shipping confirmation? Ordered suede Indys on Sunday and yet to ship. I know it is early to be getting impatient but I see that my size is now back-ordered. Will be extremely disappointed if these don't go out - they were in stock when I ordered.

    Been eyeing those Epaulet Salzburg's. Look great. After seeing your pics I am also thinking they are Barrie. Mike knows his lasts and he says Aberdeen, but they sure look more like Barrie in your pics...

    Cigar Cap Toe's today

    Those are great-looking shoes. I hope you enjoy them. I really don't think, however, that those are on the Aberdeen last. First, they look like Barrie-lasted shoes -- round v. almond-shaped toe -- wide middle, etc. -- and most, if not all, of Epaulet's make-ups are on barrie last. But if Epaulet says Aberdeen, then so be it.

    Haberdash has a nice selection, and you can order anything form the Alden catalog that they don't carry. Hanig's in the Hancock Building on Michigan Avenue also has a few standard models, including shell cordovan.
