    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.

    Is there a general consensus of online Alden resellers with a really good return policy, free/cheap shipping? I am looking for something longer than 14 days and full refund as an option. Many of the sellers have (for people in my situation at least) poor return policies. I am talking stock sizes as well, nothing special order.

    Thanks chrisefi. I really like them, so much to the point that they have presented me with a pleasant dilemma. I've got a pair of FB cigar PTB's and the DC Ravello Captoe and my fear is that these will push one of them to the background. Given that I'm trying to stop 'collecting' shoes, the Ravello Captoes may be going to the marketplace. Well look at that, just your size:nodding:

    The B&S seems terrible these days, so you'll need to decide where you want to sell them and how long you are willing to wait.

    I'm nowhere near resoling yet, but I've just gotten a pair of color 8 boots to the perfect level of sun fading. If I were to have them re-crafted by Alden one day, and they go ahead and refinish the uppers, is there any reason I couldn't lay them back out in the sun again? As much a pain as that might be.

    are those the new colour 8's? They look just like my Cigars when they were new.

    My grails! Sounds like I'm too far down the list for 9D this run. With wedding plans in full swing and the date looming it's probably best anyway as I still have to pay for two other preorders.

    I have a sizing question for folks that wear an "e" width in Barrie. Do you go up a .5 size in Grant and stay "e", or stay the same size and width (e) as Barrie?

    Thanks for any insight you can offer.

    Looking great in your Whiskey! Thanks for sharing!
    Looking great today with your PTBs. Love the little feet perspective.
    Looking good in your Whiskey!
    Way to rock Cigar today also! Looking good!
    Sweet! I am excited to receive mine!
    Very cool unique shoe D! Looking great!
    Looking good sir!
    Grant is a tweener. I stay true to size on it personally. But most actually size down (same as Barrie size). However some complain about pinky toe rub if sizing down. Just my experience and observations. -Mike
