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.

    Blasphemous traitor. Those are the accursed RL Marlow wingtips. How could you? No worries, I did too. Guilt and shame.

    IN 100' heat and 99% humidity, I don't. Texas summers are not for shell. I'm wondering if the dense humidity might cause water spots?? [​IMG]

    I wear it all summer in DC. I never have had the problems with my legs and feet getting too hot or sweaty. I do tend to wear suede more because it is a great chance to do so.

    Yes you are certainly correct. The last time I did an EG shell MTO ( a few years ago) it came to about $1300.
    sorry about that..

    Yes, you are so right and I am so wrong. It's been a few years since I had any made and it was about $1300 then.
    Sorry, I should have rechecked with Steven at Leffot before I wrote that....

    I do my best to keep my posts as Alden related as possible but FWIW my most recent eg mto came out to $ 1195 for calf not including trees.
    I would imagine shell would be in the price point you mentioned if not higher.

    ^ a new pair of course. Yeah it may hurt but you'd break em in quick and at the end of the night, you still have a new pair of Aldens.

    LHS penny's. Michael Jackson style. The single leather sole is light and they're the closest thing to slippers in my shell collection. [​IMG]
