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,

    They are made by Rancourt I believe so they should be re-craftable

    +1. Rancourt can and will resole any and all of its shoes.

    The Ivy Loafer is marked Leffot but also clearly marked Rancourt. I'd be surprised if they refused but there is always B Nelson etc.

    I think the Leffot shoes are OK because they have Rancourt on them, I agree.

    Oh Alden sages,

    Hoping for some expert advice on various (some might say minute) differences between versions of the Alden 97873 - the LWB in Natural Chromexcel.

    I feel in love with the Leffot version, long sold out, pictured here:

    [​IMG]
    I love these and, although they're not available from Leffot, found versions from Alden Madison and elsewhere. That version, however, has a darker (I hope I'm using the correct term here) upper welt.

    [​IMG]

    I realize it's a minor detail but - maybe this is just me - it gives the shoe a completely different look. I really want the lighter version a la Leffot.

    It appears I've found that via the Bureau Belfast.

    [​IMG]


    As best I can tell this is identical to the Leffot shoe. Would most of you with a keen eye agree? Furthermore, has anyone dealt with the Bureau Belfast? If so, positive experiences?

    I realize this may seem a bit pedantic but I love the shoes and, well, this is a forum dedicated to great footwear. I suppose we're all a bit pedantic at times :)

    Thanks in advance for any and all replies.

    ww

    EDIT - Just realized the Bureau is selling in pounds and not Euros and therefore what became a reasonably costed import just became prohibitively expensive. Darn. I'm on Leffot's list should they rerun the CXLLWB but the sales associate I spoke with didn't seem to think that would be anytime soon.

    I haven't posted a picture in quite a while. My old trusty cigar indy's and a newer pair of heavyweight (26 oz) denim from the folks at Gustin.
