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.

    NATE HUMBLE FROM ALDEN AT LSBH
    On Friday May 24th and Saturday May 25th, Mr. Nate Humble from Alden Shoe Company will be in-store at LSBH to “talk story” about Alden shoes. We will also be releasing a few models to mark the occasion.

    Unfortunately due to the current shortage, there will be no shell cordovan releases this time around.

    From the LS website.

    Yeah, I can't make up my mind if I like the brass eyelets or would prefer the shoes without them. Either way I wasn't going to pass up a chance to get some ravellos

    I dig the brass eyelets. I think it gives it a bit if casual look for the warmer months

    Makes more sense now. J Crew did not get another round in. They just had a few leftover pairs from the run a few months ago

    And just to beat a dead horse, I've found the same to be true for my feet as well. Shell Barrie shoes and shell Barrie chukka boots are all 1/2 size down for me where my Barrie lasted boots were too snug when sized down by 1/2 size. I probably needed an extra 1/4 size for the boots but since that's not possible, I went TTS and added a thin leather insole.

    No personal experience but I've often wondered about them myself. You think a triple leather sole on a shell shoe is a bit overkill?

    You can see the shoe in that listing and more at Ed Morel's site (Panta clothing) and the manufacturer has some additional images and info at:
