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.

    ^^^^^Damn those or beautiful saddles. Wish I was a frequent shopper (i'm workin on it) at LS to get the inside scoop regarding all the new make-ups that are available before the rest of the public knows about them. Being an 11.5 I miss the boat on some beautiful shoes a lot of the time[​IMG] . I check that page everyday now ha ha.

    Nice work Tom and the rest of the crew at Leather Soul.

    Very few are made in that color Rob. The last batch LS got was all presold before they hit the store. It seems almost impossible to get that color unless you get in good with Tom at LS.

    before those #4 PTB's Tom sold, when was the last time anyone had ever seen #4 on an Alden, or anywhere for that matter?

    wasn't that more of a "one off" than anything else?

    edit: I do see that Ron Rider has made up some...and he does often work with lesser known shell colors

    I have 'em and love 'em! They're 974 Color 8 on the Tremont last...


    Thanks, do you have a photo?

    I'm still reading about the different lasts and whatnot. I don't really understand too much about why this or that last is better or worse, other than potential fit of the shoe vs my foot shape. Nor do I understand how people get the same shoe, but on different lasts. But I guess that's how Alden does things.

    I really need to go to a local store and check them out. Sherman Brothers is local to me, so I will try them out.

    Yes, Shoe Mart. Couldn't be happier. The worry about reddish-orange shell is unfounded. Medium brown with slight orange undertints. Perfect.

    Go Alden!

    random found this pic, labeled "ravello and mahogony lhs"

    what do you guys think of LHS in these lighter colors?

    these are great summer shoes, but since I wear a lot of khakis in summer...not ideal?

    makewayhomer, I've got the LHS in whiskey. I really wanted them in cigar, but Shoemart had a pair of irregular whiskey loafers in my size that I couldn't pass up. I think the lighter colors are great, but pair best with blue or grey trousers. Khaki kind of washes them out.

    Yup, just so everyone who is on the fence can compare, this is a reddish/orange boot (Grenson Christian in Honey hi-shine calf) vs. Shoemart Ravello Boot:

    Cimabue,

    Glad you like them - Ravello is a great color and photographs do not do them justice.

    I just tried ordering some Alden cordovan boots in colour 8 off shoemart and they don't ship internationally??

    I played around with the site and it would let me order any other shoes but Aldens.

    I tried calling 1-800 number and it tells me I can't connect.

    (I'm in Canada BTW).

    Anyone know what's up with this.............or where I can order some Alden boots from??

    **edit- never mind, Tony the Tailor is my new best friend! Great selection and international shipping.

    You beat me to those on eBay didn't you...[​IMG]

    I wound up buying the cigar LWBs from the same seller. He had Cigar, Ravello(crepe), and Wiskey all up at the same time new in box for ~$550.
