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,

    Same two sizes I think they had when someone else announced last week. Wish they had more sizes. Wish Alden used Comipel shell and from the other tannery in Europe. Forget the name.

    You can add a 9.5D ravello to the list as mine arrived today and was too brown for me. Definitely not the shade listed on the web. Just dropped off at Fedex for return so they should be there in a few days.

    I'm right there with ya seven. The chukka on commando would be for casual wintery/wet weather. The black monochromatic saddle is likely my next Alden. Although, I am quite tempted by the BB snuff suede tassels which are on sale right now for 25% off.

    They've been there for a few days now, surprised. I'm still holding out hope of finding one in 8.5D somewhere.

    Cigar LWB in 9D is the only exotic shell I do have (albeit dark welt). Le sigh.

    Sorry, you wear the PCT in the same size as the Wolverine 1K? And I'm assuming you mean size up instead of size down. I would rather err on the side of a touch big, than a touch snug. I can get thicker socks (plan on wearing them more so in the colder months anyway) but not smaller feet.

    I wear the same size in all 3 . Barrie 8D, Wolverine 8, and Wolverine AE Shell 8. If you want to wear thick socks go 8.5D Barrie.

    sorry, they are dressier boots. Thought you'll wear them with regular socks in which case you should size down. But yeah if you're planning to wear them with thick wool socks, you will have to go half size up or more. Do remember, shell doesn't breath well. You might feel warm/comfortable with regular socks.

    Thanks for the responses gentlemen. My foot has PLENTY of room all around in the CXL 1K's in size 12D, and works well with thick socks. So i'll look at getting the Jcrew in 12D then, instead of 11.5. Again, really appreciate it.

    Also, thanks for the note on the warmth of shell. I have one pair of shells already, and while they are nice, they still need wool socks for a big chunk of the year for me. From December to March its pretty much always below 0 F, so wool socks never leave my feet haha.

    The 993 (black shell mono saddle) is a seldom mentioned - almost never seen (at least on the thread) - stock model. It and the 994 are probably the sleekest Barrie models Alden makes (flat welt, 270 welt, single leather). When I wear mine (993 and 994) I many times get favorable comments.
