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,

    Your shoes always have the best shine but this is beyond your usual shine. These shoes have an angelic shine and depth. [​IMG]


    Great pickup! Thanks for the pics.


    You cannot look from above. Take some pictures from at least a few feet away. If you do not like them then see about PTB's on plaza last.

    After some heavy reading through a substantial amount of this thread I have come to two conclusions...

    1) I am a complete idiot for never owning a pair of Alden's

    2) michaelw has the best sock collection I have ever seen.


    thank you

    Thought.
    That double sole looks pretty impressive. That is a serious, adult-looking shoe. I like it.

    went on a terror recently and picked up a couple of little tank like Aldens and this pair. I've never really felt all that crazy about cordovan, but these may change my mind. Forgive my poor photo skills.

    Nice shoes Mac!

    Once again evidence that Color 8 looks great with a Light Antique edge. That also looks like an extended edge if I'm not mistaken

    the ones not in the pic Winn Perry, very nice too.

    Believe it or not the #8 Jumpers I got lucky with, they are IRR from Shoe Mart. Sheer luck.

    Best

    My Ravello Wingtip Boots are shipping out tomorrow from Shoe Mart. It is going to be an agonizing wait, but a glorious day next week when I get them! That little glimpse in the picture makes my mouth water. Thanks for posting.

    the color variation you see isnt textured. in other words... the change in color makes it look like those parts of the surface are raised but its actually flat. my indys have that and it doesnt always show up in pictures. ill post a pic after work.
