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.

    This is spot on. I have the Leather Soul captor boot, #8 on the plaza last. A nice boot and the plaza last gives it a dressier look in my opinion.

    Damn, really wouldn't be that bad. For some reason I had it in my head that the bottom line on these would end up being close to a grand after everything was added up.
    Wish I would have seen these prior to this turning in to a two new pair Alden shell this week.

    Speaking of, my LS short wings won't be in my hands until Monday. How about some pics from those who have them already?

    Uncle,

    Those cigar captoe bluchers are excellent. I have them in #8 -- Aberdeen last.

    May I ask where you purchased them?

    And, nice to see them with the Bordeaux Marcolianis. My favorite pair of socks.

    Thanks to Tom, I just got these yesterday with only a 2 day wait. I got lucky that he pays attention to our posts and happened to see my post when checking stock at Alden. Thanks for the great service and the shoe trees.

    Not sure yet on the polish,but I am leaning towards a darker brown to help add some patina and dimension to the leather.
