1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Yeah. I looked at that belt and when I saw they still had my size I grabbed it. Not just #4, but ONE PIECE of shell!! For those who have not seen it and want to know how, they are from the full right and left shell set that has not been separated. The quality of the bridge between the two shells is good enough in rare cases to make a full length belt. This was the first I had heard of such a thing and could not pass it up. Already have #8 and cigar Alden shell belts, so this will complement nicely.

    Thanks. I have looked there before and unfortunately they don't have my size. I would love a Whiskey PTB

    Call Alden DC. It has been a while since I have been in but they seemed to always stock Whiskey and Cigar PTB's. It is where I purchased my first Alden's and that is exactly what I got.

    If you are against the LWB it is possible they may have a shortwing.

    Shoemart has a Ravello Chukka:

    Thanks mediahound. They only had one size left, and it was mine baby. Now I'll have something of extremely rare quality and beauty with which to hang myself after my girlfriend finds out how much I've been spending on shell cordovan shoes. Wait until she finds out how much my golf club membership is going to cost.

    I picked up these short wingtip bal/oxfords form Alden DC a couple of months ago and have really grown to love them. The tremont last is different. I wasn't enthralled initially but they have grown on me... I was under the impression that Kathy had a bunch of them in stock. Not sure what their stock is like now. You should call and ask for all of their whiskey options in stock in your size.

    I almost acquired a pair but I had already exceeded my monthly Alden allowance. Which last is most comparable to the tremont? Did you size down or was it tts? I always get a little gun shy purchasing a last I've haven't tried on before.

    I bought the same pair from her as well; I don't wear them as much as my whiskey PTB. Same size as Barrie for me.

    Thank you, but I should've clarified that I'd be interested in a shell PTB on the Plaza. I don't understand why the sleeker lasts such as the Plaza are more common with calf than shell.
