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,

    We'll take the gnome on his steps and his boots on tour and send pics of them until he gets home.

    Problem solved - KEEP BOTH!

    csmitty, I'll unload the first pair when the special order arrives from Context. Just don't know how long that will be. Hence the interim pair.

    I called them once to purchase a pair of boots, they told me they will not ship to Canada.
    Mind you that was about 3 yrs ago.

    One of our resident shoe enthusiasts recently posted a picture of a saddle shoe that reminded me of the "Hayburner" saddle shoe designed by Nicole Miller of Blackbird in 2010/11. You can still find pictures of these shoes here:

    http://helloblackbird.blogspot.com/2011/03/new-alden-for-blackbird-hayburner.html

    She designed a whiskey shell cordovan/black alpine grain saddle shoe, as well as two other versions.

    Note the brass eyelets. I guess she was ahead of her time, huh?

    It's a shame Nicole and Blackbird are no longer in the shoe business. She is/was a talented merchant.

    Anyone know if Alden makes any other shoes on the m-75 last besides the Brooks Brothers Wingtip? Searched around but didn't see anything online.

    I wish Alden would make those lasts available to other retailers. M58 is probably my favourite Alden last.

    Do we know they don't, or is that just speculation? I expect retailers tend to stock what people know and ask for.
