    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.

    I'd assume flat. Since a storm welt is often called "reverse" it makes sense that a not-storm welt might be called "regular".

    just wondering, why is this thread in the streetwear and denim forum? shouldnt' it be in classic meanwear? I mean I realize that it could fit in either one, but wouldn't it be a better fit over there?

    I've always thought those categories were sort of useless and unnecessary. Oh well.

    Great information Adam. Never knew the pre-stitched reverse welt existed, is that still being used for 990/975? -D

    Been away for a couple of weeks but thanks for the heads-up Namor. I actually saw these available several months back on TSM's irregular list. I didn't get too excited as I was fairly sure they would be too short for me, but maybe I should give them a try. I was never desperately keen on exposed, shiny brass eyelets but on the whiskey they look quite nice. Hmmm.

    Hello D. Yes. The visible stitching on the welt is decorative, not functional.

    And might I say that it looks very sharp.

    They extra stitching around the top of the welt, especially on my whiskey PTB, gives them a slight edge over many of the other PTB out there.

    This contrast welt stitching is what gives Alden the aethsetic beauty, even amidst lasts that are far less sleek than other makers.

    Thanks.

    I've used TZ in the past through their Amazon store but haven't seen those there, will snag a set, thanks.

    I'll try there too.
    They're definitely getting some wear. I have a few marks I'm not a fan of from how I sit and hold my feet in the car and at work but they still look decent. Still need to get the PTB's but can't decide on the sole. The plantation sole doesn't excite me.
