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,

    My color 8 tassels had this treatment. My antique edging has since been converted back to black, by me. But then again I prefer color 8 models with dark edges, without exception. All personal preference .....

    Have any Canadians out there had any success obtaining Alden Leather Defender?

    Assuming the answer is no, would any Americans with good access to some be willing to PM me? I'm also having a hard time finding some of that Terrago Nano Protector for my suede. :embar:

    (FWIW, J. Crew will not ship ALD across the border.)

    I looked at getting some Alden Leather Defender in Canada, and it seems that unless you can get someone to proxy it, it's not an option. No one will ship it to Canada that I remember. Hopefully someone knows something I don't, as I wouldn't mind trying some this winter on some shell.

    Thanks much for the feedback - I think the cordovan versions of the ramsey are great - just not sure how good the plain old calf versions are... must try to go check them out in store.

    This is such a great shot. Colors just pop.

    All: don't know if this has been posted yet, but Tres Bien is offering 55 Eur. off and free shipping on orders of over 300. I haven't done the minus VAT / discount conversion, but this may make some stock Alden models slightly less expensive than normal.

    Those are great-looking boots, Mr. DV.

    Moulded sole also has a pebble grain boot.

    Brush with horse hair brush and buff with a soft cloth, out of the box. With commando soles, I don't think you need to wear several times on carpet if you are already sold on the fit. Wear and enjoy them my friend! Many of the pictures here look "glass-like," "dipped in liquid chocolate," etc... due to the correct outdoor lighting and sometimes manipulative electronic apps. Wipe down with a damp, soft towel, brush, and buff before wearing (or after). They will look great! Apply wax or conditioning cream a couple of times each year. The conditioning and wax doesn't do a whole lot to make them shine, imho. These are pics of mine that have not seen any wax yet... [​IMG] I 'need' a pair of these. Just an awesome classic.
    #8 LHS should be included in the first 3 shells that every man must own; so versatile.
