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 don't have them in my possesion yet but I have a photo from him, there is a small variation in the distance like you were saying but not significant enough for me to have an issue

    Yes, I think my closet will contain mainly Carmina for formal shoes when I "graduate"(provided the lasts fit my foot) and Alden for my casual day-day wear. I really like the pair on the left. How would you wear the pair on the right? and in what colors?

    I'm always surprised by the shoes people complement the most. I have some lower end double monks in a whiskey like calf that pull complements with every step I take. Then I'll wear some wonderful deep beautiful shell and not hear a word... Like you said, though. It doesn't matter at all. I wear what I love. Not for the complements. Love your 403, I'm excited to receive mine Saturday.
    Stoked for you!
    In short, no. The SF way, yes. The plaza last's sleekness would warrant enough of a discernible difference. This would be especially true if the Barrie lasted WTB had the antique edge. That would be the ultimate justification. Going back to my previous reply, no one will probably even notice. To everyone else (excluding your fellow brethren here) they will probably just be "that pair of burgundy boots Rep has".

    That is Cognac and Saddle A.K.A. Ravello and Whiskey.

    That is the thing, these shoes are going to be for sale soon because Carmina lasts do not fit my Freddy Flintstone feet.

    They fit, just NOT like my Alden's. [​IMG]

    Alden provides the finest fitting shoe I have ever had the privilege of putting my fat foot into.

    Plaza fits me best, then Barrie and then Hampton.

    The Aberdeen's I just bought "seem" good. I will let you know soon.

    Wear them just like Alden whiskey...light to mid grey's. Cuffed chino's and khakis. Worsted of the highest sort, gabardines in a broad array of colors.

    I personally like this shade with grey's and British tans...

    Respectfully disagree. There's a reason why you can't do it... Anyone can claim to quantify, but in the end they are making an evaluation based on their own valued variables. For example, the "quantification" of a single person with no debt making $500,000 annually may be significantly different than a family-man earning $50,000 annually. Too many subjective variables for one to claim objective quantification, imho.

    It was tough finding a clean route to my car this evening so I gave in and trudged through the snow.
    I'm pretty certain there is a pair of black Leffot Graintrippers in there somewhere...

    dark brown, good luck.

    It's funny, Alden should give this thread commission.
