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,

    So kind of you to say, Sir.

    I'm happy that was finally able to peel myself away from this thread/site.

    Nice!

    Copley or Aberdeen?

    Does anyone here have any strong preferences between the standard color 8 NST on aberdeen (2210) versus J Gilbert's color 8 NST on plaza (shoe, not boot)?? I think some (i.e. @sevenfoldtieguy ) have said the plaza is spectacular with boots but just okay with shoes. Anyone else have an opinion? Does anyone here own the J Gilbert version?

    Thanks in advance...

    Wearing my newly-acquired unlined CXL Chukkas with flex welt sole today. Pretty comfortable right out of the box.

    Correct - BB uses Snap instead of Hampton on its captoe (perf tip) oxfords, and on its captoe (straight tip) derbies. Alden equates the Snap last with the Hampton last. I own both and they are quite similar.

    I entered the store with a 9d cap toe boot on the Grant last, they sized me up to 10,5 c with the Brannock & wouldn't give me anything else. I left with 2 pairs which felt weird in the beginning as there was plenty of space up front for my toes. But you get used to the size & understand how comfortable they are. From then on everything I buy is 10c or 10,5c. Has made a big difference for me. Modified last may seem strange at first but it really grows on you. Here in Europe apart from Anatomica, browns fashion in the UK have some Modified last models & Fransboone just brought his first one in brown calf.

    PSA from Unionmade (sent to email list):


    Sizes: We are only accepting orders for non-D widths with the exception of 12.5D and 13D. We stock D widths up to size 12 and sell those shoes through our stores and website. (We do not reserve or hold from sale D widths before they appear on our website.)

    Deposit: A $100, non-refundable deposit is required, per pair, to include your size in the order. When you reserve your pair, we will require billing and shipping information.

    Returns: No returns accepted. All sales are final.

    Billing/Shipping Info: When reserving your pair, please provide:

    Name on credit card

    We are happy to take reservations either via e-mail or phone (415-468-1178).

    Delivery: As is customary with Alden, we do not have a delivery date on any of the models to our warehouse as of yet. Please note that delivery can sometimes take up to 6-8 months. If you require them to be shipped to you the standard shipping rates for our online orders apply.

    Deadline: Wednesday July 23th, 2014. 12:00 PM, PST. This date/time is very firm. No e-mail or phone reservations will be accepted at 12:01PM PST.

    This shoe is very similar if you ignore the material, color and grain of the upper as well as the eyelet color. The design of the upper as well as the sole will be the same (Norwegian top stitch, commando sole) while the top stitch will be white:

    The color of the suede will be quite close to this and the brass eyelets will be the same:

    Please reach out if you have any questions. You are welcome to reply to this email or reach me at (415) 468-1178.

    Many thanks, gentlemen, for your continued business.

    Best regards,

    Adam



    As the email is for anyone who asks to be on the list—ie nothing exclusive for special customers—I hope it's ok to put this up. If not, someone let me know and I'll take it down.

    Unionmade has some great makeups. They tend to make them look more rugged, with all-around welts and commando soles, but they got some great ones like the two-tone medallion cap toe (Alt Wien, basically) on flex sole.
