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.

    Very different makeups. While does it boil down to deciding between those two?

    I like the JCrew PCTs myself. That said, you can get those again without too much trouble. Not the same with the Cigar Indys.

    DC is doing one last run of 12 pairs for now to clear out the list that she had. She was talking about getting it in when I was the store the first two weeks of Feb.



    I assume he meant 975, the 986 is the Color 8 LHS.

    Well I bit the bullet and drove to Niagara Falls this morning to pickup the Ravello NST's and then drive right back home! 3 hours and $120 in taxes and I unboxed these.

    These were definitely a grail boot for me so I am stoked to have them!

    Concur, but it really comes down to your personal style. I know that you tend to favor the casual styles, so I would keep the more casual style, the Cigar Indy. It doesn't hurt that the Color 8 PCT is readily available if you direly regret it.

    They are from TheShoeMart, which is in Norwalk, CT. Many stores won't sell or ship to Canada, so he uses a US addy to hold them for him. It seems many times people do that for Aldens.

    There used to be a store that was in Buffalo that carried Aldens.

    Sorry, I got them shipped to Niagara Falls. I ship a lot of my items to CBI which is just over the border from the Rainbow bridge crossing. They were bought from TSM

    It is my understanding that the PCT boot is being phased out and replaced by the new #8 Indy on Crepe....

    Interesting. Not a great choice in my book.

    So I finally got my first pair of Aldens! I super excited but as this is a decent investment for me I am overly anal about things. Overall the boots seem perfect but I tried on a pair of 403s at the shoemart and didn't notice this short of distress or cracking. I know creasing is unavoidable with CXL but I only wore these for a 2 minutes in my apartment and say the cracking (like super dry skin). Is this something i should just ignore or would it hurt to put some VSC or neatsfoot oil on it to condition it back up. Think sitting in a cold warehouse for weeks could be the cause?[​IMG][​IMG]
