    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.

    Agreed, if you like the McA with jeans then wear it. I some times wear my dark brown PAs with a nice Jean and love it. I did just get the McGs as well and they do present much more casual, more than I expected actually.

    All I have to say is... where there is a will, there is a way!!!

    Normandy with a Vibram lug sole (like the Long Branch) and minimal distressing. The way this boot should have been made all along!
    This Kudu leather is sooooooooft. Didn't even need to apply Bick 4 to the insides before their first wear - which has never happened with my boots. I can tell these will crease on the toe-side of the cap, but I can live with that, being such a casual boot. Funny - I've noticed more of the distressing in my pics than I did when unboxing or wearing.

    I wear all of these in spring/summer, the first 3 with shorts.
    -Kirkwood (have in brown, navy and red)
    -Maritime
    -Addison
    -Clark Street
    -Suede chukkas (Gobi, Amok)

    I have my eye on a pair of Sea Islands (while on sale) and only if they offering in narrow sizes. (My 5-last size was too short.) I was interested in the AE sneakers, until I tried them on in person. The toes were way to short/squatty for me. Too much of a bicycle toe for me.

    I also rotate in more of my walnut or lighter color shoes (e.g., McTs, LGA, Black Hills) during the warmer months, often with no-show socks. Then again I wear boots year round, even when its nasty hot in Texas, so take this with a grain of salt.

    Depends on what you mean? Casual? Loafer? Dress?

    Off the top of my head:

    - Sea Island
    - Strandmock 2.0
    - Woven Leiden

    Congrats! Those look fantastic. Damn, now I want a pair. I thought the same as you; those needed a lug sole from the get go. Authenticity is fine, but since they had a lug heel already it was just crazy to make them not work as a bad weather boot. Curious how the kudu will hold up.

    Kids are like shoes. Soon you'll have too many and cant afford them anymore. At least you can sell the shoes....

    You are exactly right. THAT'S the makeup AE should have used from the start. Mine have a lot more distressing than that, but they were lightly used and under a Benjamin, so I'm not going to complain. They are ridiculously comfortable and I'd buy it again in a different color, if they should ever decide to continue it in something other than brown or black.

    Thanks, I'll take a look
    Thanks. More on the casual side, either laced or loafers.

    I do not have three to improve on other suggestions, but I do recommend the Shreveport to go with the woven Leiden if that is a direction you choose.

    I have a pair of these that I bought just over two years ago (black, and my first AEs). I'm pretty sure mine have creased similarly, though not as much.

    Nice $250 lunch today. That's what happens when you work 2 blocks away from the store. And I'm still hungry. I wound up going with the Cavanaugh in Oxblood. This is the first shoe of 13 that I have changed sizes on. I went up to an 11. Having them shipped to me to avoid sales tax. Of course, pics when I get them.

    OK - So Paul says he's open to a group order for a Leeds in brown shell. Anyone in? Medium transparent edge dressing?

    There's also this: "We're bringing back the Bayfield and the Fifth Street. And we have a new calfskin hiking boot coming out this fall called the Rockies Highline, and another plain toe boot that looks really great too."

    Plenty of people here will be happy to see that the Bayfield is back.

    I'm not a fan of the Leeds. I prefer the Carlyle more and i might be willing to pony up the $$ for it, but wouldn't for Leeds.
