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.

    Because it provides a free bump to someone who's selling something that others may like.
    Right, but that seems to be against the whole spirit of B&S. I voted for no replies to any B&S threads. Questions should be by PM, and replies, price reductions, SOLD announcements, etc., can all be done via editing the original post. But this is an Alden thread, so we don't have to debate this here...

    i like your whiskey. is it the aberdeen last?

    Mac,

    Thank you. They are actually on the Barrie, from ShoeMart. The NST makes the Barrie look sleeker than on other models.

    It's working fine for me right now. But other places that I have gotten Alden accessories at are needsupply.com, aldenshop.com, and shermanbrothers.com.

    Some great shoes there. Though I fail to understand why SF folks have to reply to a thread with shoes that don't fit them.
    Holy shit that's a great thread!
    That, or when it is in a person's size you will typically get something to the effect of "someone please buy this now so my wallet and I don't have to agonize about it all day!"
    Because it provides a free bump to someone who's selling something that others may like.
    Thanks for the comments guys -- I did not mean to start a debate here. I make it a point not to bump my threads unless there is a price drop and I answer all questions via PM. Sometimes I do post in other FS threads if I see a really good deal, but I discourage unnecessary thread bumping at all costs. FYI, I just posted part two of the purge - http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?p=4421222. If any of you guys see a pair you like, please PM me [​IMG] I also listed 2 pairs of indy boots and one pair of tan suede chukka boots in SW&G - http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?p=4421262

    High insteps created the same problem for me - I've never resorted to buying heavy equipment like a "vamp raiser", I've just brought all of mine to Brooks Shoe Service here in Chicago (plug - great shoe repair shop).

    But, over time the stitching in the LHS across the instep invariably comes undone. I've owned the LHS in many shell colors over the years and I've finally come to the realization that the shoe is not made for my foot. Still have a pair of Ravello and a pair of Whiskey but as these wear out they won't be replaced.


    I have a high instep. I'm sure the stitching on my LHS will come undone. I fully intend to have it fixed locally to preserve the stretch.

    outstanding! enjoy wearing

    Thanks, mac!

    I've done lots of complaining about the LHS over the years, but I couldn't resist this pair. I hemmed and hawed after purchase, and even sold them 2x (once to a wonderful fellow forumite, but they didn't fit him, unfortunately; another time, to a deadbeat bidder on eBay). As a result, I figured I am clearly destined to own this pair, found the vamp raiser and put it to work. It made a huge difference, and while it's possible the stitching will eventually need repair as a result, I am thrilled just to have one pair.

    I've given up on a large handful of pairs of LHS in various sizes over the years, and this one seems to work. Probably not convinced enough to invest in others yet at this point, but maybe will go for a pair in #8 eventually.
