1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I am thinking of selling my Brown Shell Bayfield GMTO's in 13E.....If anyone is interested let me know -I will decide over the next week. I have a few other options in brown shell and the Bayfield I purchased to wear with thick socks...I lost weight and even with boots socks they are a touch large on me

    I was eyeing a pair in suede but thought is was ill-proportioned for a long wing. Perhaps the 'gunboat' is too firmly entrenched in my mind but I think a long wing needs some heft and bulk. The McGregor was just too dainty for my taste.

    MTO Eagle County in brown grain. I don't visit much anymore, but this guy ^ just had me scratching my head. And other stuff. That is all. (witnessing the bastardizing of the new AE thread...sad.)

    The closest AE offering is the black cordovan Rutledge I saw posted recently. An insult to Chicago and well dressed gentlemen, danny boy! Can't remember the last "street market" I've seen in the Chi...selling shoes, nonetheless.

    WTF?

    Did you just have a stroke?

    Keep childish rants like this off this thread please. Especially if you're apparently so unfamiliar with humor.

    Gentlemen..ahem...let's not drift off into irrelevant topics that deviate from the purpose of the thread. That being said, one may be wondering, "What shoes would the well dressed television actor "connected guy" wear? While binge (not bing) watching The Sopranos, I noticed the distinctive AE "V" on the heel of Ralph Cifaretto's shoes while meeting with Tony Soprano. Can't tell which shoe, but it looks similar to a suede Players. Sorry for the image quality, but its a screen grab from video.

    Can I get some feedback on my left V gap? I wore these all day today and the right foot is perfect. I know the size is right as I was swimming in 10E McAllisters yesterday.

    I don't want to overthink it, but will it loosen up and look more like the right side over time? Should I buy a shoe stretcher to loosen it up?

    They look great to me. I would not recommend a stretch unless the shoe is not fitting your foot properly.

    Thanks. The right is perfect, left is a little tight. I'll stretch it after a few wears if it's not caught up.

    Loving the shoes though, length is perfect.

    Can I brag? I picked up these Oxblood Strands yesterday with my McAllisters and they are quite possibly my favorite shoe in my wardrobe.

    February was a crazy month. I hadn't planned it, but somehow ended up purchasing five pairs.
