    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 suspect that Alden would classify that the same way that they do an MTO. They no longer do it. I'm not so sure they ever would have taken a pair for re-lasting, out of the risk of throwing off the shoe's proportions, unless the customer was willing to take full risk and pay for the job regardless of the outcome.

    Man, the profile of the Indy never gets old. And the creasing for a boot like that will make #8 look amazing in the years to come.

    I can't justify the shell version, just because my 403's would always get the nod for everyday wearing.

    I once asked Rancourt about making a pair of my loafers smaller. Said it couldn't be done.

    I agree.

    These are my everydays. I typically don't wear them to work but they called my name when I opened the closet today. Plus I heard it may be raining when I leave work.

    Thanks, Be. I have a hard time deciding between these and my CXL PTB on flex sole for my most comfy.

    Wow, good eye. That actually is a dye issue. But at least it's not on the toe. :)

    NeedSupply also sells that makeup, as does Roden Gray. You can't get enough CXL in your life, it's just too freaking comfy!

    RG also did a plain toe brown CXL boot that looked amazing, although I think they're sold out.
