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.

    Congrats! These are great!

    I was seconds from pulling the trigger on this boot back in the spring. Then Mike informed me that he would build my boot. I still creep around on Frans and add my size to the cart if only to dream!

    People typically size up 1/2 from Barrie on the Plaza so I'm not surprised at what you are experiencing. I would try an 8.5.

    I am an 8 on the barrie and an 8.5den on the plaza. I'm not sure who advised that a 7.5 would work for you but that sounds like a stretch no pun intended.

    There have been a lot of back and forths with Alden on these boots. It should be fine. They should know the specifications for these.

    Your Wingtip Boots are looking great Don! They have a nice patina to them.
    Your Indys are looking good but need some more wear. Not that I should talk. -Mike

    I wear 10.5B Barrie and 11B on Plaza. Most people go TTS on Plaza and size down on the Barrie.

    I go 12D on Barrie and 12E on Plaza (but 12.5D will work).

    YMMV.

    I got Them! Haven't tried them on yet. I'm not a huge fan of the barrie last, so not sure if I'm going to keep them or not. I'll let you know if I decide they aren't for me.

    I wonder why Alden waits so long to ship out irregulars to TSM. The run of 4074s was made in February...

    The probably ship them out as firsts, first. Then when the retailer gets them sent back from customers 5 times they send them back to Alden.

    That makes a lot of sense. And is also a bit discouraging if true.

    Pure sarcasm. Just playing off Alden's sometimes questionable idea of first quality shoes.

    Sadly, you may not be too far off the mark...
