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 dont know any other 10.5's.
    They said you were very knowledgeable with Alden and a pleasure to talk shoes with.

    Ha, yeah, they found me entertaining. They were probably disturbed how much about Alden's I have learned over the past few years. It actually surprises me that vendors don't follow one another's designs. I don't think I know of a shop that really tracks designs that others are running.

    Late to the party as well with this but here goes:

    2014 Acquisitions:
    Leffot #8 Naval Boot
    LS Choco Suede Tankers
    DC Commando Trippers
    Cigar Chukka's
    Epaulet Innsbruck Indy
    Unionmade reverse chamois NST- Leather Soul
    Brown CXL wingtip with commando sole
    Snuff Suede wingtip with commando sole
    JCrew Natural CXL captoe with commando sole
    Need Supply Grain Indy
    Need Supply Suede Indy with commando sole

    2015 things already in the pipeline:
    Alden Madison - Ravello Wingtips
    Citishoes - Alpine Grain Tankers
    Epaulet - Navy Tankers
    TSM - Ravello NST on Aberdeen

    Things I hope to acquire realistically:
    Cigar Indy's - preferably with leather soul (on the list with TSM)

    DC Cigar Captoes

    Dreams:

    Im sure I will end up with plenty more shoes not on this list. Been debating the black Walter boot from Leffot if it comes around again as well. I like the antique edge if its gonna be black.

    No, one would need to go to BNelson. Alden will only restore them to the specs in which they left the factory. They USED to do this though.

    Same here. Mine's more of a 'don't ask, don't tell' type deal. Or to be more accurate, 'she asks, and I try to skirt the subject and try to change topics.

    My wife is happy that I take care of my shoes and other things so she doesn't care about that. She does ridicule me for having so many shoe horns in the house (I have 2 decent ones and then all the freebie plastic ones Alden gives you).

    Does anyone have any tips on where I could find a cigar or ravello shell plain-toe or captoe boot in 2015? I know cigar can be tough to come by, but if anyone knows of any pre-orders or even stores it would be worth inquiring with, I'd appreciate it. Also willing to consider second-hand. Ideally looking for plaza, but would do barrie or grant, too. I'm a 10.5D TTS, 10D barrie.

    Though my wife may not appreciate mens footwear, she makes one hell of an authentic pho stock (she's Cambodian). I've had lots of pho in lots of places, but none better than hers!

    For the Cap Toe Boots, contact Kathy at Alden DC. She makes the rainbow sans Whiskey on the Grant Last with Speed Hooks and a Commando sole.

    I don't know of (or care about) any Plain Toe Boots in those colors.

    Ahh so sorry Guys for the misinformation ... Thanks Mike for straightening this out.
    So has anyone actually had B Nelson successfully pull this off?

    Thanks! I'll have to check it out next time. Pho is a favorite of mine when it gets really cold and wet outside.
