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.

    I prefer the brown or ravello shell more than the lighter colors like natural or whiskey, as for me lighter colors aren't that versatile. Cornwallis and Mora 2.0 in brown/ravello shell with double leather sole will be great as webgem...

    Broke down and picked up a pair of the Brooks Brothers version of the AE Duke football loafers from the Show Bank. $158 ... Great deal on these great shoes!

    Those look great! Wouldn't have known they were seconds at all. Do they have the BB sole?

    The little scuff marks are new and aren't really as obvious as the pic shows.

    I've been heavily considering a pair of them myself. Would you kindly be able to post a few more pics if possible? I have also been weighing my options with picking up an Oak Street Bootmakers beefroll loafer but the BB football Duke for less than half is really enticing.

    Nice, thanks.

    The football leather is quite good looking.

    I had to send back the first pair I ordered in my usual shoe size. These shoes run a little large ... so I went down a half size.

    When a style goes on clearance online, is it cleared out with the same price at the stores?

    I have a question for you gents:

    I bought a pair of hardly worn bourbon Strands off ebay for a great price, but when I got them I realized that the cap toe on the left shoe isn't straight and it causes the vamp to flex awkwardly. They are first quality and lack any markings on the sole. Would AE replace these with a new pair? How would you go about approaching AE about issue?

    What's the diff between McT and McAllisters?

    I see the McT are more casual... but why?

    It's not really noticeable in the second pic, to me.

    Brown CXL Bayfields.

    Didn't like them when I first saw them - the leather looked a bit matte and almost too casual. But they cleaned up nicely and now have a soft glow.

    The McT has the following casual details:

    Rough cowhide leather vs dress calfskin
    Stitching uses contrasting colors
    Double sole vs single
    Split reverse welt (the strip of leather that attaches the shoe it its outsole) vs flat welt

    I think you should try to return it to the seller. I don't think AE should take the hit for a pair of used shoes that you bought online. Who knows what's the story behind that pair. That's the risk you take when purchasing used online, and should be ready to swallow the loss. If you had bought from them, and they were defective, different story. AE CS awesome, and once went above and beyond when FedEx messed up big time. But there should a limit to what can be taken to them.
