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.

    Thanks Uncle! I found it on ebay the day I got back from NYC. I was disappointed I didn't find them in my size at Alden on Madison. I was pretty lucky... the auction just started with a starting bid at $400 and BIN at $520. I'm certain the bidding would have exceeded the BIN. With the condition seemingly perfect, I am a little worried that the seller may not have come upon them legitimately. Oh well...

    Thanks! These are pretty dark, at least compared to other color 8 I have. I am quite fond of them. [​IMG]

    Repp, those are fantastic boots. The only boot that tops them are the Plaza Lasted version, but I am biased. I hope that you enjoy them.
    Shawn, these are truly worthy of posting. Thanks for sharing.
    Henry. Those are nice looking Naval Boots. I hope that you enjoy them!
    Mr. NY, those are great shoes. I am wearing my pair right now. I hope that you enjoy them. They are a great and versatile shoe.
    BK, you are a brother in the Brass Ravello LWB. Yours look absolutely fantastic. I hope that you continue to enjoy them!
    Congrats on your purchase. Those are a great looking boot. I hope that you get to continue to enjoy them.
    Great looking Tankers my friend. Enjoy them!
    Uncle, those are classy and beautiful. Hope that you had a good day!
    Tif, that is some awesome looking carpet. Too bad those beautiful boots are in the way.
    Saz, those are great looking tankers. Hope that you enjoyed them greatly!
    DV, those are horrible and do not go well with your lawn. Please ship those immediately to me. Thanks. Have a good one guys! -Mike

    At the Time Warner Center / Columbus Circle, perhaps? I saw some shell and other Aldens there last December--might be worth a call...

    Whatcha think about the Dr. Jones name? I thought it was a good way to capture the increased sophistication with the Plaza Last to the Indy boot. Still Indy, just more formal. :)

    Thank you DV, for the compliment on my new boots. I was really happy with the price. Your new alpine J Crew boots look like a great year-round, casual go-to option. Enjoy them often in great health, my friend!

    Thanks for the compliment on my new color 8 wtip boots, Mike. I do not own any plaza boots but I agree. Your Doctor Jones boots are wonderful; I like the moniker. :D

    Enjoy them often and in great health my friend!
