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.

    Well it appears that the rumors about a shell shortage may be true... I have a leather artisan out of. Chicago who makes small leather accessories for me out of shell cordovan...he usually picks up his shells as he takes orders, going to the Horween factory nearby... I dropped him a note today to see if he could make something for me in No. 8 and this was his reply:

    "Horween is currently out of shell cordovan. I will open up the store when stock returns."

    Not looking good folks... We may be in for a bit of a dry spell... Unless Alden has stocked up on shells...?

    He just sent me another update:

    "Skipp the owner thinks August but I'm going to call this week and see what I can find out. "

    it would be interesting to know if Horween has any shell in the pipeline currently as it takes a full 6 months to complete.

    Yes, it's a second time in one week, but these are my favorite shoes.

    Based on what my guy indicated, August, so it would appear they do... But who knows how much of a supply they will be turning out? I'll share any further details as they get relayed to me...

    I was at a Brooks Brothers store several weeks ago and saw a pair of LHS, BBBF in what appeared to be Cigar with double leather soles and dark brown edge. They look like slip-on tanks, but awesome. They only had it in size 7.5D. I haven't seen anything like it since. If my tassel mocs work out well, I may pony-up (no pun intended) for the 986 or 6717.

    Those are from Epaulet. They aren't on the Barrie last. Leydon, I think.

    I figured they where not on Barrie but my foot does better in Barrie last. Think the leffot will be close enough.
