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.

    I like to think fine footwear balanced with a professional look, help to get me the promotion. Keep me on my feet and comfortable all day. It will not be "That's what she said jokes" that put me into the club. But maybe..JK

    I think everyone should follow Mac's advice...

    (The lack of competition would make it a hell of a lot easier for me to buy what I want)

    No deer bone, but a spoon and some leather lotion, as prescribed by Nick Horween, has helped remove some rolls. I think leaving them in the sunlight here could help too. The UV index of 12 should help them a long nicely...

    I wish I could send these away to the Advanced Alden Summer Camp with Mr. @mcarthur

    @NAMOR how do you like your black calf shortwing bluchers on aberdeen. The tan versions have intrigued me for quite some time now, but I haven't nailed down my aberdeen sizing. It tends to differ depending on the make-up.

    I like the dual make-up look. Almost slipped by my radar!

    well i got my first pair of aldens.
    been looking for a pair of PTB chromexcels
    for months. i got lucky and picked up a alden
    for crew one with the plantation sole.

    was a bit hesitant with the plantation sole but it turned out
    better than expected. so comfy and can't imagine this with a normal
    sole. the chromexcel is very very versatile and can imagine this to
    be a daily wearer.

    Spoon. Excellent pick up. From what I have seen the natural cxl ages really well. Enjoy!

    thank you sir! i love them and have seen examples of well aged CXL.
    one thing i notice is that the leather seems to scuff more than my other
    pairs.

    was feeding my shoes with conditioner and accidentally brushed it with my thumbnail.
    you can imagine my reaction lol
