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.

    It may (or may not) be on the future runs, but the supply of suede is hardly constrained. I'm sure CF Stead will make as much of it as anyone would care to order. So unless MassDrop has some sort of copyright or licensing agreement with AE, I'm sure there will be more Janus Chukka's in the future, as there were (the Mojave 2.0) in the past.

    Ultimately your right, people will pay what they are willing to pay.

    Bourbon Daltons on their maiden voyage, looking a lot more red than any bourbon shoe i own (Larchmont and Mora 2.0). I like it, cuz it reminds me of Bob's Chili:

    LOL. I know people say "I can't afford shell" I said the same thing when I saw the ad last year "have a Cordovan Christmas for $599, I threw that flyer in the trash. Then I got to counting how many shoes I never wear that are sitting on the shelf. I counted up how much money I had tied up in them and how much space they take up, I made a decision to have 1 shell shoe over 4 or 5 others. I haven't regretted it. I returned as many as necessary to get the shell shoes I wanted. It's all a matter of perspective and preference. That being said....I see those suede Blue Strands are on sale! Darn AE! They know I can't resist a blue shoe! LOL.

    Those are nice, I think my choice in that boot would be Oxblood based solely on pictures. I ordered a pair of those in Bourbon and cancelled them because I felt like I might not wear them with all the others I have in my rotation, as it is I need to thin the herd!

    This picture is so well done that you could make this into a painting.

    Since we are on the topic of oxfords, does anyone think it would be redundent to have to have both the Park Ave and 5th Ave in black as well?

    I ask as I have a pair of black Park Aves I bought used off of Ebay when I had no money in college(the uppers are in good shape but the rubber heel part is starting to come off) and I thought I'd add the Fifth Ave as an adjunct sort of speak. Since I am looking for a conservative interview shoe to join the Park Ave.

    Am I better off saving my money and using that money to get a pair of brand new black oxfords, getting something more diffrent like the Herring Chamberlain, or would I be fine getting the Fifth Aves?

    I would get the heel replaced/repaired on your PAs, and add a brown shoe (like the 5th Ave).

    When was the last time you saw a real life unicorn? You have a better chance doing that, than getting your hands on a pair of those shoes.


    Hyperbole? Not by much.

    Not AE, but still. Peal & Co (read: Church's) velvet slippers:

    Not sure if anyone is familiar with velvet, but wanted to run this by y'all. I noticed some variation on the toe when tilted in the light, wanted to see if y'all think this is something I should return over or just ignore:

    It may be exaggerated because of the flash, and I'm inclined to keep them since they typically look like the second photo in real life, but still wanted to get opinions.
