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,

    I imagine he meant yearly since you quoted him as saying so... [​IMG]

    @budapest12, I assume this was regarding my post, ignore if I'm wrong!

    My reaction was the same, I asked Curtis to confirm if they really wanted that done, and they said yes!

    Hopefully this will help the folks that are new to the Alden shell game.

    -D

    Hi, I recall reading on this thread that Alden will send you a replacement toplift if you call and ask. I think it was about $5 per. I'm not sure if they still offer this. Otherwise, any reputable cobbler will have a decent replacement on hand.

    Hope this answers your question.

    This isn't an Alden contribution exactly (and I only have the snuff suede chukka so no shell for me ... yet), but wanted to share this here given everyone's affinity for shell cordovan. I just received a Horween shell shoe horn. I like it because it serves it's purpose really well being a slick surface and one that can show patina over time, and also just a bit more unusual than Abbeyhorn:

    In trying it out this morning, it was impressively slick and also the thick portion is more comfortable to fit the foot in the shoe (im used to a narrow AE freebie horn and only now do I see its limitations).

    A bit of an excessive luxury but I can see this just making me smile as I get ready every morning.

    So there are 10 people in line for the cigar boots in my size, as I had kind of expected. I elected to get on the Ravello captoe boot wait list instead. We'll see how it goes.

    Yes, these lists are deep and serious. For many members, this is not a game. Crazy Alden-heads!
