    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.

    Speaking of Whiskey PTBs ...
    PSA - Alden SF just received an order of Whiskey PTBs in yesterday. Not sure what sizes they have available or if they've all been spoken for, but it might be worth a phone call if you are interested. I was on their wait list and was notified that my pair in 8D had just arrived. Good luck!

    Nice boots, tifosi! I'm also wearing their twin today for Black Friday. [​IMG]

    Haha. I did ask them about the size twice! Still a little nervous though.
    Thanks, ryden!

    This is completely off topic (and a X post) but I had to share these with my Alden colleagues. I needed something with a non-leather sole in my rotation and had been lusting after the C&J Islay for a while. They are the first UK made footwear I've purchased, the first non Alden/AE shell footwear I've purchased in a very long while and lastly my first dainite sole. So far I'm liking the sole and absolutely LOVE boot!

    If you'll permit me to share, here are my obligatory proud papa shots.

    Congrats! I'll have to check with them and see if they ever off the same kind of pre-orders that Alden NYC just had for their Cigar and Whiskey LWBs, full payment up front with the choice of any size as long as they have a slot available.

    Pretty cool Tanker just rolled into Epaulet NYC. The antique welt and edge goes v well with the contrast stitch.

    I like this boot very much. The only thing giving me pause is the Tru-Balance last. I have never seen an NST on it before I don't believe. I wish this were on the Barrie.

    I am torn between this boot on the new reverse CXL boondocker Viberg boot that Leffot got in. Touch choice...

    If anyone purchased the above Epaulet tanker in 11.5, and something doesn't work out- please drop me a note.
    thanks kindly

    Really like that Navy Tanker, too. I wish it was on Barrie.

    Ryden, I think I just saw a Trubalance Tanker on Instagram the other day. The stitching for the split just doesn't look right meeting the more squared off toe stitching of the trubalance. IMO.

    Those navy ones are tempting. J Crew had a suede version on Tru-Balance a while ago. I think the blobiness of the TB is somewhat masked with the NST. [​IMG]

    I agree with tifosi. The square moc toe stiching of the Trubalance NST always throws me off. I have a similar problem (though less of one) with the Plaza NST (either shoe or boot).

    Barrie and Aberdeen are the way to go for split toe, IMO, due to the more rounded toe. I wish there were more Aberdeen split toe boots (The Shoe Mart had these, but I haven't seen them restocked in a while).

    I can't quite determine what model this is??....j/k j/k

    Already breaking this TSM second in. Slightly wavy along one piece for the laces. Other than that, perfect finish on both shoes.

    I hate to say this, but I really think I need the stock 975 along with my antique edged Leffot version...
