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,

    My photos are poor, as usual, but these things are incredible. (As is the early spring PNW weather!)

    Just got my 4060h seconds in... There's a small scratch on one boot and the sole stitching isn't the greatest but other than that they're pretty nice and fit great.. The flaws are bearable for a $250 discount.

    do all seconds have the "R" stamp on the soles?
    if there any other indicator that they are seconds?

    Just a flesh wound...looks great. "R" is the only indicator, but I've even had them without that.

    Does that mean group made to order?

    I asked him if I got a group of people that commit to a makeup what can he do. He said Alden listens to them about makeups but Alden tells them when they can do it

    I can pull off the same size in shoes, but had to let a pair of plaza boots go....barrie is definitely roomier though

    My foot is weird and should not be used to advise anyone at anytime on sizing...

    My heart is to just be helpful for other folks...

    I'm actually the same as you Watchman1... The barrie gives me a little room width wise and not much lengthwise. The plaza seems to trim away some of the excess. I actually prefer a little extra room so the barrie works exceptionally well for me (I do like the plaza also). There are a couple of models my normal barrie size is too roomy; brown chrmxl LWB on commando and the black shell ct boots. I placed tongue pads under the vamp area inside the shoe to adjust. I know this is highly unorthodox, but the fit becomes soooooooo comfortable/perfect. I suspect my barrie size is may bey C width, but for many of my LWBs and PTBs going to C would make them less comfortable.

    Sir, I think you are another victim of Alden QC. There is definitely unacceptable color variation in your ravello LWBS!

    lol
    mdubs LWBs are so nice, I would probably still wear this pair. Maybe hope that over time, they would both mellow to the same color!

    For those who have purchased seconds on crepe sole, how are these marked as seconds?
