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.

    Got bored while waiting for my GF in Japan at a cafe in Kyoto. Snapped a picture of my Jcrew x Alden #8's (antiqued edges) to kill some time. 3 or 4 days of straight wear into the trip

    Your Boots are looking terrific, especially with the antique edges. Look a lot like the Leffot Navals.

    Gentlemen,

    I am pleased to share the new Alden Country Calfskin Leather in the form of the Alden x Brick and Mortar Tan Country Calf Longwing Bluchers.

    As I refer to in my article, I am always nervous about something new and unseen, but these Tan CC LWBs came out fantastic.

    Enjoy!

    Venetian shoe cream, Alden wax and Saphir Wax are what I've been using on my shell sparingly and I am very happy with the result.

    I heard people saying that the neutral Saphir cordovan cream works well but I haven't tried it myself.

    But I don't think using coloured cordovan shoe cream on shell is a good idea, you certainly don't want your shoes ended up looking like this.

    Finally going to receive my Color 8 Pitt Boots w/ antique edge from Leather Soul. Nearly 3 years of waiting, hope I'm not disappointed. Crazy wait for Color 8, that's for sure! Pictures at some point this weekend.

    I am not convinced the dark creases are a result of the colored crème.
    This happens from time to time.
    It is more prevalent on lighter shell.

    Congrats. It seems like they are trickling in to the shop in Hawaii as I know that a few arrived a couple weeks ago and it sounds like yours just arrived recently. I'm still waiting on mine. :paranoia:

    FWIW, the pictures I've seen of the ones that have come in look spectacular.

    Thanks for chiming in, MP! Out of curiosity, where have you seen pics? I briefly saw an Instagram pic from Leather Soul, then it disappeared. Any good links? I'm lusting after them at this point in the most pathetic way!

    After seeing the Instagram pics I did some Googling and found a recent post with a picture buried on Grailed or Reddit or SuperFuture but cannot seem to find it now. It was on one of those forums that I never really go into.

    It seems to be quite the secretive boot.
