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,

    Keep in mind I'm looking at a WT boot on Plaza. Hah!

    Carry on, fellas. I'll take off my muddy Daltons at the door.

    Totally Agree! Jim was so nice and helpful. I visited Alden SF about 2 weeks ago and I was fortunate enough to get a Cigar PTB with antique edge in my size!! Love it so much![​IMG]

    My wife spends a lot on shoes, and she appreciates that what I buy is carefully considered and basically for life. I went on a search for women's goodyear welted shoes, and only came up with Carmina. I have picked up three pairs for her, and the quality of build (stitch vs glue) is far beyond the Italian mules she usually wears. I buy them with loving generosity, for sure, but I don't kid myself that they don't reinforce the habit for both of us.

    Crockett & Jones, Edward Green, Tricker's and probably other English companies make women's shoes.
    Of course they all look like men's shoes in women's sizes.

    I seem to recall Alden offered women's size in some models, like LHS, too.

    Right — I remember my search did come up with others, but I thought Carmina had a nice feminine touch for shoes with traditional roots. And, sorry to hijack — I go nowhere else where I can share such things.

    My Whiskey PTB arrived from Alden SF and I did not bother trying them on. As you can see in the photo...there's a large rectangle area on the right right shoe that's darker than the rest of the shoe. As Ron White said: You can't fix stupid!

    They are going back

    See Ya,
    Steve

    That is unbelievably prominent. How the heck did that make it through QC, unless there is no QC...

    Sorry, Steve. I was really pulling for you to get the perfect shade whiskey. Hopefully they get replaced fairly quickly.

    Actually I like the shade of this whiskey...it's pretty true to the whiskey color. If you hold the shoe at the right angle you can't see the darker area. When they arrived Friday afternoon I quickly looked at them and did not see the dark area. Today I looked again and said "Aw Crap"

    This will be the 1st pair I've returned due to defects. However the question thats already been asked is how did this make it out of QC?

    See Ya,
    Steve

    ^ this thread sure could use some female companionship with a woman wearing aldens. Perhaps we could call her aunt?

    Wow those look dark. Very nice... but almost black. Any chance you could take a photo outside in direct sunlight?
