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,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    Would be great if it was on Plaza since Brick&Mortar changed theirs from Plaza to Grant.

    From his email - $775, Plaza last, January 2016 delivery. Limited run.

    Yes indeed. The waiting game is so tough.

    @mdubs Thanks bud! I will wear them ASAP. It's been 90 degrees here with high humidity so as soon as it cools down a bit I'll take them and the wife out for dinner. But for now I will break them in around the house!

    Do you have a sense for whether there's much room to specify what model/look WRT the non-8/black cordovans? Differently: could one request a pair of, say, jumper boots in the whiskey?

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately Alden will no longer do individual MTO. Most vendors offer their own designs and people obtain them by either getting on a list (Alden DC, TSM, B+M/AoC) or joining in on a pre-order when they are announced (Leffot, Epaulet, AoM). It's unusual to modify any design details for those orders.

    Alternatively, you could gather 12 interested people and get a group order going with Alden of Madison and Yenni from B+M. They are usually limited to color 8 and black shell and the expected wait time is quite long.

    Exotic shell like cigar, ravello, and whiskey are usually off limits to any group orders.

    Hope that helps,

    -D

    PSA Leffot preorders Monday for navy CXL Greenwich boots and some very handsome brown alpine grain with brass eyes and hooks on commando Greenwich boots.

    Does anyone know if this is with dark or antique edge, btw? Looks like dark on the photo, but not sure if that's of the actual makeup. Would love if it was antique. Edit: Just spoke to Sean, it's the dark edge (as pictured). Got on the pre-order anyway (thanks, JSO1!). Guess beggars can't be choosers. Could always send them off to Randy the cobbler...
