    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.

    Tom - I've just used your wax, given to me complimentarily by one of your lovely staff, and I must say it is the most fantastic wax I've ever used on shoes, absolutely superb stuff.

    My 2.5 year old captoe boots are shimmering, I'll take some photos in the morning and post up before I head off to wear them in sunny Barcelona.


    Nice! Can't wait to see pics.

    What size? We received a restock last week.

    Do you have a 7 or 7.5?

    Hey guys, I've tried this once before a got pretty good results. If anyone is interested in getting rid of some Alden's, PM me pleeeaaase! I'm looking for the Leather Soul Revello shortwings, Leather Soul Blue Suede PTBs, and Plaza Lasted Loafers in tan, and others. I'm a 9.5D on Barrie, 10D on Plaza. Please someone help me achieve my Alden dreams!

    In before "use WTB section", I've been trying for months!

    On a side note, I tried to place a custom order through SkyValet here in DC, and they said they sent it through to Alden, and I haven't heard anything in months. Anyone else have this issue?

    Interesting new blog; www.thelongwing.com

    Very cool (particularly the Alden pics).

    Tommy P - check out the snuff suede George boot (looks like it's on the Plaza last) - that might need to be a LS offering (if it isn't already).

    In the third picture down of the Yuketen shoes, what are the ones on the left, and the centre pair? I generally don't go for Yuketen because I don't like their moccasin look at all, and I prefer a heel, but those two boots look fantastic. Having difficulty posting the picture here but will try again later.

    Edit: found them. Paul and an "almost" Johnson models, only with different soles. I think they look great.

    Nice. Although gotta say, I think the Alden pics are pretty low quality.

    Any thoughts on the new J. Crew cordovan chukka boots?

    Meh. They're Barrie-lasted chukkas. I guess the roughed out suede is an exclusive leather? It just looks like chocolate suede that someone rubbed against the grain, TBH, but is nice. Much prefer the Leydon chukkas on flex-welt soles, which is where most other Alden stockists have been headed.

    Not at LSW. You might want to try calling LSBH.

    any 10s?

    Same. Sorry, our inventories are not linked. Faster to call Bryan.

    Aren't they just the stock #1339 available at any Alden dealer?

    Very cool (particularly the Alden pics).

    I like them better than the monk straps but I prefer lace up aldens.

    Don't know how I feel about those monk straps on chukkas, but I guess it's worth a try!
