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,

    HaHa. You apparently have a fashion trend to start. Sounds like a pretty expensive one though, as you need to spend 1400 to pull off with Shells...

    Jeze, I bought a pair a year or so ago from Alden DC, but it unfortunately had a line on the toe that ran from the tip of the toe to the laces, so I returned them. One of two pairs that I have ever returned.

    Beebs, your decision is easy this time since I got the last one in your size. Alden DC does this design fairly frequently though, so give Kathy a call and you probably could get on her next run.

    Waterloo,
    Great color. You did well. Buying exotics has been risky lately, you won.

    Get the wing tip boot in the same color. I just got the black one and I love it. It's similar but different enough.

    Has Alden's color 8 changed over the years? I picked up some older J Crew cap toes, and comparing them to new ones, the color is a lot less eggplant and more of a real burgundy color.

    My king 975 is 2 years older than my JCrew PCTs and the 975s have way more of the eggplant glaze than the PCTs.
