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,

    I know Need Supply has the monthly 10% off code, but I have one for 15% that expires today if anyone is interested. Its Alden supply is pretty limited right now, but if you see something please PM me for the code. I'd prefer to give it to use on Alden, but anything more expensive where the extra 5% would matter is fine.

    Haberdash is having another 20% sitewide sale today.
    Works on Alden although I suspect their inventory is getting thin.
    Site is getting hammered.

    Hope the two people in line in front of me for the cigar cap toe pass them up when they become available at Alden DC. So sweet.

    Thanks for the heads up. Anyone happen to know what last the Color 8 cap toe boots are on? I sent them an email, but I'm not sure how fast I'll hear back.

    Excellent looking shoes today folks.
    I'm having tech difficulty. I have an advertisement banner covering my reply to quote option on my iPhone. It's at the bottom.
    This one has "adding a little dapper to any dull day"

    Any ideas on how to get rid of it? Thanks.

    Thanks. Looks like I waited too long, though. My size is sold out!

    Edit: Well, my size ended up reappearing, so I went ahead and got them. Looking forward to these.

    Gents,

    When guys size-up on their Barrie boots from their typical Barrie shoe size because of tightness, do you think most go up a width (i.e., 9D to 9E) or most go up a size (i.e., 9D to 9.5D)?

    Is there a general rule here?

    Thanks!

    I have heard that Barrie boots sometimes fit tighter, but I didn't think enough to warrant a size change. Others will chime in, but I hope not as I have a pair of Barrie boots on pre-order in my normal Barrie size...

    Just thought I would post a group shot of my #8 collection. The loafers aren't technically #8 since they're AE, but it was pretty close to the others when they were new. They've been worn HEAVILY to the point of abuse, so the wear has changed their look significantly. Now that I have other shells, they've seen less wear (and I'm sure they're thankful...).

    Apologies for the washed out picture - my camera phone wouldn't cooperate.

    Thank you, Sir. I'm debating whether to keep my Naval boots. I find the toe box to be lower and narrower than my Grant boots... not sure if I can expect it soften up. Having never learned from prior experience, I should just admidt that first impressions are the right ones.

    My Naval boots started out a little tight, but as my foot sank into the cork bed they became more comfortable. The toe box hasn't stretched for me at all for what it's worth.
