    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.

    If I remember correctly, they run sales at every holiday basically... But vary which models are on sale.

    How did you get 15% off Amoks even though they're closeouts?

    Yes. Not as good as the last one ($130 for BB and RL shoes), but still pretty darn good.

    So I was able to get to a different AE store today and had a much more pleasant experience. I found my correct size and width in the Leeds and then tried on the Dalton. The D width fit perfectly on the Leeds; however, it was more snug in the Dalton. It was not uncomfortable but it was snug. I then tried the E width Dalton and it was of course roomier but not sloppy. I would say the D overall fit better but the touch of extra width was also nice. Has anyone else experienced this?

    I am also thinking that due to the stiffer nature of cordovan as opposed to the calf I tried on that it may not be pulled quite as tight on the last and therefor be a bit roomer as well...

    The 2 last = very tricky. Some love it. Many hate it.

    Very nice. Which email would I use to find out whether they have my size in one or two of these shoes?

    went to Nordstrom today to try on a pair of black Clifton's. they didn't have them in my 10-1/2eee, but I tried on a Strand in my size... I really need a black dress shoe to replace a too small pair that I've had forever, but the walnut strand fit perfectly and just looked awesome.


    I made it out without buying anything, but now I'm thinking I can wear a painful pair of black dress shoes

    if you wanna call them ask for Kelsey, she is very prompt and helpful. Otherwise ask for Kristle as she is the manager and can give you an additional discount, at least she did for me this morning.

    I go down in width for all my loafers to get a fit that is more snug (including in the heel).

    I've recently lost quite a bit of weight (60 lbs) have wondered if my foot has gotten smaller.

    I've noticed that in certain shoes I have to draw the laces extra tight or that the two sides of the shoe too easily come together. Not exactly sure it warrants going down 1/2 size or going to a C from a D since the shoes do feel fine, but would appreciate some opinions.

    In my Park Aves, Strands, McAllisters, I have never been anything but an 11.5D.

    Take a look at this picture and please tell me if It looks poor fitting:

    I am contemplating purchasing a pair of Park Aves in Merlot. Anyone have pictures comparing calf in merlot versus shell cordovan in burgundy? Especially in Park Aves?

    Thank you.
