    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.

    Amazing array of shoes, gents!
    I have pictures of a different nature: Do you think these are OK for first quality? I am generally not finicky about condition for shoes bought online, but I'm having doubts about these (bought not from the 'bay, but an alden stockist)

    Why don't you call and ask for a small discount. Doesn't hurt to ask. I find returning/exchanging things to be such a hassle. I know that they will become like that after the first wear so it doesn't really matter, but it's the principle that they have been creased and scuffed up and sold to you for full retail.

    are these supposed to be new shoes? shoes are overly creased, which means the former owner must have done a lot of walking on the carpet before realizing that the shoes don't fit

    Those have been pre-mac methoded. I could probably live with those, however.

    Thanks, but I thought this was a one-off circumstance: an Alden specialty retailer whose name escapes me (Blackbird?) went under, and the stock of this shoe that remained when the doors closed ended up at Alden DC. My understanding is that Alden DC was merely selling off this remaining stock, and not continually stocking the shoe after that remaining stock was gone. I thought I heard this from Kathy at Alden DC. Am I wrong about this and this shoe is part of Alden DC's normal stock?

    This is correct, and the retailer was indeed Blackbird. I own a pair and they are splendid. Esp with brass eyelets, and the juxtaposition of textures.

    That Blackbird "Hayburner" model is bound to be reproduced by some retailer. They are awesome, but not for everyone. Cheers.

    Got an unexpected call today from Kathy with an offer for one of my fav shoes, Whiskey PTB.

    Anyone have pics from this recent DC run so I can see the shade? I'm scared of them being very ravelloish. Hoping to sell a few things to help fund them but we shall see, I might have to pass on them for now.
