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.

    The "H" means half. So a 9H medium is a 9.5D.

    Hey Guys,

    Bryan Yamashita from Leather Soul just emailed me that the next shipment of Pitt Boots are in. Just picked up my first Alden boots. Can't wait!

    What's the deal with saddle shoes? They look like golf shoes to me. Are they supposed to?

    Actually, I think golf shoes are supposed to look like saddle shoes. This is my first pair and I thought they would be a change of pace to my other Aldens. I don't like saddles when there is too much contrast between the two leathers, but as these are both fairly dark, I think they look sharp. (And worst case scenario, I will have my local cobbler add spikes and I will have my most expensive pair of golf shoes.)

    Yes, the Ultra has a higher "vamp". The standard Alden branded ones (made by Rochester, I believe) are pretty flat. I much prefer the Ultra. Overall finish is excellent, less likely to mar the lining of the shoes.

    BTW, I would recommend using some emery parer (aka sand paper) to sand down the rough edges of any shoe trees before use.

    would the ultra serve better than the alden rochester rebrands for alden plaza boots?

    Nice pickups! Almost the same as me, except I have the #8 LWB. I'll post pics tomorrow, we all love a little Alden porn yeah?

    Although I'm thinking about trading the #8 for Cigar....any thoughts?
