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.

    Thanks. Funny thing is that I bought the chukkas about two years ago in New York without even realizing what I was doing. I'd been in the Alden shop a couple of times and admired their array of shell chukkas and went with the whiskey for purely aesthetic reasons. My main concern at the time as, gee, I already have a pair of PTBs (in #8 though), aren't these kind of similar? Ha ha. Glad I bought them, of course.

    A simple yes or no answer will suffice.

    That picture sold me on them, so I picked up a pair. You are correct, they are lighter and much shinier in person. I ended up returning mine.

    I've shipped 2 things to Canada:

    1 time was a electronics worth $900 that were being sent back for repair. It took 3 months for them to arrive. I actually filed paperwork with the USPS thinking they were lost in transit

    The second time I shipped something to Canada, it took 1 month.

    Both times I was shipping from New York.

    Never again

    Nope.

    Because of NAFTA Canadians do not pay duties on goods that have been manufactured in the US. But even if they did, the point would still be moot because the buyer is the one paying the duties, not the seller.

    I have two pair of Alden's.
    My 403's came from Leather Soul in Hawaii. LS charged me an extra $35 (I believe) for shipping, but then I got dinged with another charge when they got here, sorry, cannot remember how much. There is one store in Toronto that stocks Alden and that stock is very little and the choice is mediocre if anything. I came out paying less then I would have if I bought the same boot from the store in Toronto.... I believe I saved $50.
    My second pair were bought while I was in NYC from Leffot. I do believe he does ship to Toronto, just email or call him to be sure. Steven is very accommodating so I am sure he will.

    Good luck.

    ^ Uncle, do you have a link to a specific post detailing the Mac Method? I tried searching the forum but I couldn't find a thread that went through the whole process in detail...

    Just picked these up from the shoe mart.....chamois tobacco indy boot with commando sole. The photos I saw online made these look kind of weak, but in person this is a smooth looking boot!

    I'm cross posting from the C&J thread. If anyone can give me any opinions, I'd appreciate it. I'm going to have to put in a special order from a company based in the UK since no one locally carries C&J. I'm trying to do my best guesstimate as a return would be a pain in the butt.

    For last 337 on the C&J, I am sure I'm either a 7 or 7.5...but I'm not sure which one. Again for reference, I'm a 7 UK in Tricker's last 4444, and a 8.5 US in Alden's Grant and Plaza lasts, and 8 US in Alden's Trubalance, Barrie, and Modified lasts.
