    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.

    Still looking around for a few pairs of shoes. I always seem to just miss them...

    Cigar or ravello Indys in 9d

    cigar, ravello or whiskey PTB's or chukkas in 9e or 9.5d. Used is just fine. Something about beggars...

    ; )

    Anyone seen a pair or wants to move one along?

    Thanks. Yeah, bad timing posting a question around those cool #2's! :)

    Anyway, I pulled the trigger yesterday and sent a check to Adam for the AF124 (alpine LWB on commando) and AF120 (brown cxl PT boot on commando). I thought I was done buying Aldens for a while, but I think that now puts me at 5 pre-orders that I'm waiting for. (wallet says ouch)

    If you're having to wait for the alpine LWB, why don't you just order it from Alden San Fran? Alden has had this as a stock shoe for quite some time...

    So I got home today after wearing my chukka's most of the day. On of my dogs greets me and then does a stretch at my feet and catches my shoe with his claw [​IMG]
    I was not impressed. He left a small gouge in it.
    Gave them a wipe down, brushing, a boneing and then a buffing. I think it turned out okay. Looks better than it did.
    There is however a nice slice in the hide [​IMG]
    Guess it will add to the character of the boots over time.

    Good save. My dogs always greet me at the door and I usually have to do some ridiculous footwork to make sure they don't gouge my shells.

    Thank you! A nice forum member broke me off a piece of cigar shell I'm the form of an unworn indy boot. I'm very happy!

    That chukka in SF is 9.5E. Someone should grab it it!

    One day, I'll find a whiskey or ravello chukka in 9e or 9.5. But, I'm in no rush. The funds are depleted ; )

    I appreciate all the help. This is a great thread...

    Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately for me, I need EE or EEE width, so I have to special order nearly everything. :(

    That could be the Earth chamois shoes that The Shoe Mart was selling on a commando sole. If you like them, I would give TSM a call, as I think those came up on the last irregular list for many sizes.

    I tried on a pair of Chromexcel brown plain-toe bluchers today, at Alden on Madison Av. The shoe color was redder than I expected, and they didn't go well with my caramel-colored pants. The look was too overstated and eyecatching for my tastes.

    That said, I did like the shoes in their own right, and they're super comfy, so I'd like to find an outfit that works.

    What color pants do you guys wear with Chromexcel brown? Maybe dark jeans?
