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.

    Very nice collection. Really like the roys and the 9901. Do you find the black 9901's to be versatile?

    i tried adding 5 different sizes and got the same message each time

    All of the sizes are out of stock now, and the page for the cigar shell Indys doesn't even show up any more when you are browsing Aldens. The link still works though.

    Thanks! The 9901's are the most versatile shoes you can own. They go with everything from old jeans to a tux (except Birdwells)!

    I got c*ckteased by Shoemart tonight too. They finally have the #8 shell captoe boots I've been pining for in their dropdown menu in my size. But when I try to add them to cart is says they're currently out of stock. Sucky.

    I'm somewhere between 6.5c and 7c on the brannock scale. What would be the best size to pick for the Alden 403 Indy boots?

    Probably either a 6C or 6.5C would work best. 6C would probably be best if you are going to wear dress socks with the Indys, 6.5C would probably be better if you are going to wear thick socks.

    The Trubalance is the widest last that Alden produces, I would recommend the C width. Check out the link they carry 'em. http://www.NorthRiverOutfitter.com/p...ome_excel.html

    Thanks for the link. I think I will settle for the 6.5C then.

    That's my shoe size as well. Picked up the 403s in 6.5c. Had to have em stretched a bit by local cobble - in width -
    are great now. Would likely have stretched on their own, but I just wanted to expedite the situation.

    Just realized that I have 4 different animals represented in the boot collection

    405 Indy - Cow
    Tobacco Chamois Indy - Sheep
    Black Cordovan Chukka - Horse
    NST Ravello - Horse
    Officer Boot in Kidskin - Goat
    Black Indy - Cow

    Note: Although both the Tobacco Indy and Officer Boot are on the trubalance last, both feel like they run tts. The Officer boot is size 12 and fits great. The Tobacco is size 11.5D but fits snug. I usually take a 11.5 in trubalance

    Dude what do you wear your black chukkas with? I've been considering it. I want to wear casually and with suits occasionally

    You've got your PTBs and slip-ons covered. Go with the chukka.
