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.

    I thought some members here might be interested in seeing the difference between the recent Whiskey LWB from Alden SF and the new Ravello WT boot from TSM. I was very nervous that they would be identical.

    Here's some indoor lit shots this evening:

    I'd check Mitchell Leather out of Milwaukee and also Ashland Leather.

    Both of these are open to custom work.

    I think the Ashland folks work at Horween for their "day job" so they can get the shell right from the horses mouth [​IMG]

    I'm not normally a fan of black boots, but those are sweet.

    The shoe trees always make TSA go wild when they're in shoes in my bag. I wear the PTBs and carry on the 986.

    I don't deny 11e would be his best size. But IMO going up 11.5d should work too. I wouldnt suggest him to take 11.5d if he was buying a blucher. But when it comes to boot, where heel slippage wont be a sigificant problem, I think it will

    That's my one frustration with Aldens. They ruin the pre-check experience for me or I have to wear a different shoe just to avoid taking them off.

    I always get told I am an idiot for taking my loafers off (I usually wear my 986's when traveling). I am used to it now and just smile...

    Very nice and they appear sleeker than the Trubalance last. Were did you purchase them?

    I'd love to see a side-by-side shot Indy Trubalance vs. Indy Modified lasts.

    A lot of watering, fertilizer and sunshine.
