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.

    I live in NE Florida and it just today got "cold". Loving boot weather. Makes me realize I need more boots! Tobacco reverse wingtip from Yenni can't arrive soon enough! Oh yeah, color 8 grant last wingtip wait list too. Are we able to simply have our pay direct deposited with her or Adam? Seems like it would be easier:satisfied:

    Today Leathersoul UI.

    This is one of the best makeups out there period IMO.

    This may be a dumb question or one that has already been answered elsewhere, but here it is.

    Why ask people to size up or down depending on last? Why not just label them accurately? So a 9 in Barrie would just be labeled a 9.5. Is there a legitimate reason they do this? It seems like Alden does this on several of their lasts...

    Well, Barrie isn't really half a size down. Most people just size down by half to compensate for the wide heel, generous instep, and relatively elongated, rounded toe box. I mean, see the whole discussion about the J.Crew PCT, which some folks feel fits more true-to-size.

    Also, many Alden lasts, like Trubalance and Modified, for example, were designed with orthotic/podiatric considerations in mind, which means that they are designed to fit slightly roomy to accommodate a wide variety of foot problems.

    Your UI is looking very good and works well with Selvedge Denim.


    Thank you fine sir!


    Don, your Cap Toe Boots are looking very good. Are those Color 8 or Black? It may be the lighting, but those look like 4065's to me!


    Ha! Thanks!


    Your boots are looking superb both inside out out! Enjoy them today! Always nice to see the Barrie variant now and then!
