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'd be all over the Shakers... as I am told they are NOT coming back like originally expected. Love my chili ones and still have an eye out for a black pair.

    @St Hubbins Madison Park & Norwich - good stuff. I would not recommend sizing up for the Norwich - its a hell of a lot stiffer and needs break in, but if anything its larger already - like cc described with lack of laces.

    Interesting how much impact instep can have - I love the Norwich. Same size Mora 2 felt like I was wearing clown shoes.

    Got slammed at work, so I will keep this brief...

    After discussing options, I am going to give the HMs some wear, specifically with heavier socks, to see if I can make them work. Since they are B widths and not stocked, I just didn't want to wait ~6 weeks from the time I purchased to when I could actually wear them. With the thicker socks, I am now dealing with the left that fits tighter (rather than a voluminous righty). Hopefully this stretches out a little bit and I can enjoy the boots - and forget about the frustrations/hassles that have occurred yet again. If they don't, well... I know AE CS will take care of me with a replacement.

    Here are indoor and outdoor pics. Gotta say, they look sweet! Fingers crossed about excess creasing due to one boot being wider.

    I was certainly Mr. Sad Trombone when the SM said no Shakers or Bayfields. I was like "but, but... Mr. G said so."

    If I had to guess, all of the fall models have been released. Maybe we see one down the line in a web gem or other promo???

    Move along people move along. Nothing to see in the 9d section of the shoebank. Just keep on moving along...

    I have some time to think about it since I'll be traveling, but I've really overshot lately.

    I wore my "real" cognac McTs today

    I'm a bit confused as to why the Kenilworth is coming back. I still see a ton of them at NR and on shoebank.

    There is a bourbon Grayson with black tassels on the ShoeBank. Has anybody seen those in the wild?

    It might be a bit of a jump for me from 8.5C/9B to 9D, so you you don't have to worry about me :) nevertheless, I wonder if I can find insoles thick enough to make the 9D Shakers work. :slayer:

    Great thread, thank you for starting it. The AE sale starts October 7 at our local AE store, want to purchase the Fifth Avenue boot in Walnut. Anyone who owns it, does that color require constant up keep, beyond the normal once every 2 week polishing?

    I actually went up a 1/2 size from 5-last. Haven't worn them since last winter, so I can't give you a great comparison fit to other shoes. I went up the size to account for boot socks, but quickly realized the tapering was a little quick for my toes, so the extra room was spot on. I bet a road warriors insert might do the trick!

    I'm eyeing a secondhand pair of brown AE for Brooks Brothers Strands. Is it worth paying more than $100 for a used pair when I could possibly get a shell pair for $310 or so with the AmEx discount during the next seconds sale?

    I think a call to my favorite SA is in order.

    Those look minty fresh! As an aside, I cross-laced mine at first, and now after break-in the gap is pretty parallel. I should probably switch to bar-lacing now...

    Any rumblings about % discounts for RDA? Looking to pick up a few new pairs of 1sts and replace my strands. Hoping its not something pathetic like 15% across the board. IMO @ $395 they are already approaching Carmina/Alden prices and just not worth it. Hoping for sub $300 strands.

    Isn't always 14.92% off across the board? The year Columbus discovered America.
