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.

    Just about ready to pack up the unlined LHS's and the C&J Harvard's for the Winter. 80 here today so one last ride in my most worn loafer, color 8 BB Unlined LHS. Onward to Chukkas and NST Boots.

    No offense, but natural cxl is going to get beat the hell up and that little scratch/scuff will just add to the character.

    It's your prerogative to return them, of course, but they'll look like that within an hour of wear, anyways. This isn't shell...

    So many nice new Alden tankers have been posted. You guys inspire me to stop being a lazy poster. Here are my nearly 18-month-old Leffot tankers with brand new PBJ xx-007s.

    Henry, you are looking very good today in your Color 8 Wingtip Boots. Adam's model is unique as it doesn't have the broguing on the back.


    That is the Chippy I know! You are looking very good and relaxed in your Unlined Color 8 LHSes.


    Doc, it is always nice to see boots and shoes. Thanks for sharing them. Your carpet is pretty awesome as well...

    Very nice and congratulations! You have a nice inventory starting to build up!


    Zippy, those Snuffs are great, but those pants are even cooler.

    Navy CXL Chukka from Leffot, the single leather sole and crazy supple leather land this right up there with the unlined modified boot as my most comfortable Alden make up.

    The gold standard for the jcrew pct. anytime you post, I can't stop looking at the pic's. Keep em coming.
    C'mon man. Put it in your sig. We're close to the same size and I while I love the SF forum, I feel the exact opposite about B&S.
    Seriously Chipshot, there are no legs that would look bad in those shoes. No worries my-man, you are to LHS's what Mike is to LWB's.
    Without a doubt, my next non-boot purchase. IMO, there isn't a better bal than this. Well done Prez. There are very few Alden retailers who care more about the Alden brand than Adam of AoC. I never have to worry about defects in any shoes I receive from him. These AF53's ere no exceptions..... [​IMG] [​IMG]

    They were in my sig, and they already sold. Sorry. Just wanted to give the folks here a first shot at the rarer shell, didn't know that it would upset you.

    [​IMG] Thanks.



    Holy crap. That is color 8 in all its glory. PTB is a wonderful way to showcase king shell. TB & commando works so well on that makeup. Adam is a genius.

    Thanks guys. Definitely appreciate the comments.
    They are flawless and look great. They will look even better with wear and as they get closer to this.....
    Thanks Mike. Shoddy work on eyelets in the past removes BNelson as an option for me but Aram at Ahonshoes is as good as it gets. I didn't realize he did eyelets so I will definitely check with him. I hear Randy the Cobbler may be an option as well. Always appreciate your insights, postings, and willingness to help. Keep up on the good work on Alden of SD as well. One of my more frequented sites.
