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.

    So we can't acquire new cordovan shoes so that someone can have a cordovan candle? Seems to be misappropriation of resources.

    I like the design, dislike the last. I was considering it until I saw it in person. Too fashion forward for my tastes but that is just a personal preference. If it were on the five last I'd love it.

    I like monkstraps and I like perf captoes, but all together it's unsettling. Not as bad as that kiltie-tassel-captoe abomination.

    lol

    So, the Lord & Taylor deal is pretty good, it seems to me. And may get better on Friday when a new code ("Ultimate") kicks in for 25% off, if your size is still available.

    So, with all of that in mind, I have a sizing question. They have sizes like 10, and 10W. Is the "W" equivalent to "e." Anyone know?

    EDIT: looks like the strands, and park avenues are all sold out...

    I see ^ I use my cordovan samples as car fresheners and hang them from my mirror.

    One last picture of the Burgundy shell Leeds before I send them back. 7D in Leeds just wasn't working. Thanks to AE's customer service I well be able to exchange for Black Shell Leeds in 7E instead (decided I was ok on Burgundy shell front with Cambridge and Macneil......)

    Do you wear the same size in shell and calf? It looks like the calf version is slightly slimmer than the shell version.

    Once again you and I have very similar tastes. I am trying to decide on a cappacino Leeds or Williams. I am probably in the minority here, but I prefer the Williams to the MacNeil

    Is it a good idea to lace your shoes up tightly for storage with shoe trees? Or is this just done for appearance in the photo?

    I like the williams allot and that would be great in shell. I thought about it myself but having three shell LWB I decided not. I think I am doing the Leeds

    With a lighter edge trim to make it just a bit more casual?

    I finalized my order today for walnut shell Leeds in 10C. Dainite sole with midsole added; brown split reverse welt with light brown welt stitching. I will wear the shoe casually and wanted a rubber outsole for wear in inclement weather, as needed.

    I'm curious as to why AE seems to have so much shell available but Alden seems to have 0. Perhaps forward thinking by Mr.G and company to stock up?
