    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.

    Dropped by TSM today on the way back home from vacation on Cape Cod. Walked in with the intention of buying a pair of 9901s and I did.

    Then I spotted something pretty unique on display:
    Black calfskin plain toe boot, antique edge, commando sole, brass eyelets (and speed hooks), 270 welt (just like the Indy boot), Barrie last. Looked pretty kick ass and fit like a champ so I bought a pair of those as well. I know there is probably a 90/10 split on the inappropriateness of black uppers and brown/antique edges, but I'm in the 10% school of digging it. Not sure if it is up on their website yet because I think they were received not long ago. Just an FYI for those interested in this style of black boot with brown edge.

    Ugh, great make-ups Dylan. The snuff suede/color 8 saddle is a grail for me, but I can not wear Plaza. The brass eyelets are a bonus too. Damn you wide toe box, damn you!

    Yeah, ryden is being modest as he was the "designer" of that boot and named the Ryden boot. I barely managed to get my order in on that, as it sold out in just minutes. The differences are the already mentioned black shell, as well as no speed hooks and a 360-welt. We might be lucky to get it in 2015, but knowing Alden it'll be 2016.

    I have the exact boot that you bought in every detail except that it's in brown CXL. Extremely comfortable and a great kick-around boot. Congrats on the score as I think you'll love it more as it ages.

    while i'd prefer barrie, this saddle is irresistible. take my money! now let's talk about doing that plaza alt wien boot in #8. and how about a plaza semi brogue bal in #8 as well?

    Thanks! I'm sorry the last doesn't work for you, but hopefully we'll have something down the line that's of as much interest and suits your foot better.
    [​IMG] All good ideas! I'll keep these in the vault.

    No worries Dylan, I have a few EP models already, you guys do nice work! Next time, do a run on Barrie and we're all good. On another note, any update on the Color 8 Alt Weins?

    Depending on the color make up Id get one. My initial thought was color 8/antique but that might be too similar to the leffot tanker to justify it but thats just me.

    Coming up to one year on those.

    I think Mike said he was expecting them this fall.

    They responded to my inquiry. As of last week, they had a 9E in stock.
