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,

    Uncle Mac with the rare non-shell selection! This happens but once a year!

    Looking good, Uncle.

    Thanks Mick! Those CXL LHS in Navy have heavily been on my radar for the last few months. If they were blue shell...well...wow...and they wouldn't be Alden's :)

    The PTBs in Navy are also awesome but never in my size on TSMs list

    That stitching is there only because the walnut shell Daltons are unlined and the stitching holds the inside band of shell taut on the inside of the boot. You are correct that the stitching is not on other Daltons (at least as far as I know).

    I have the same pair from the same batch from Pelle Line. Mine looked great out of the box. I haven't had to do anything other than brush yet.
    You did a wonderful job. They look fantastic. Enjoy.

    Thanks. Not that I'm aware of. We were in Chicago for our wedding anniversary and the AE store was across from our hotel. My wife and I stopped in only because I couldn't find any stores with Alden's. Was about to buy a pair of shell wing tips and just casually mentioned that I have the Dalton's in calf and how much I love them and the manager just happened to remember seeing one shell version in their system. She checked for my size and it was the one. Put the wing tips back and had the Dalton's shipped to my home. Here is a side pic of both walnut Dalton's. I'm no expert but I don't see anything different (other than the obvious):

    Looks the same to me......

    Much appreciated uncle. Thanks.


    Appreciate the words bkotsko. I had to work to get them to this point, but I am very happy that I decided to keep them. Glad to hear that yours worked right out of the box. They really are very nice boots and feel fantastic when wearing. Enjoy.

    FWIW, JCrew PCT #8 Boot is available in most of the normal run of sizes again, back ordered until Feb 2014 (at least the size I just ordered). I know at least one person was asking recently.

    Wow, I can't believe those are available for what you're asking. Not my size but seriously doubt that they will be available for long. Good luck.

    I agree with Tifosi. Ever hear the saying " Ten dollar horse and Forty dollar saddle."
