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've posted these before but here they are again. The shoes that started it all, my first pair of AE's and still one of my favorites.

    In some cases, yes. There was a post back explaining that it depended on the condition of the lasts for that model.

    does anyone know of a website that has pictures or a list of old AE styles that are no longer in production?

    Ended up going with the chili welt instead of a natural welt. It should be darker while still showing the layers in the sole. I have the amoks in snuff suede, I wonder whether it has a chili welt. If anyone knows, let me know.

    here is what my order looks like. I wish there was a way to visualize all the options.

    *CAPPUCCINO CORDOVAN
    *TONE ON TONE STITCHING
    *STANDARD LEATHER INSOLE
    *SINGLE RENDENBACH OUTSOLE WITH COMBINATION HEEL
    *CHILI FLAT WELT
    *LIGHT BROWN EDGE DRESSING

    They look great, nice job! If you don't mind me asking are you using Reno on them? On my new pair I am using Bick 4 but it doesn't even come close to the luster that Reno did on my other ones. Still undecided on which way to go, Reno is expensive but....

    That is my make up almost exactly. I went with the chili split reverse welt for my chukkas and PTB.

    Sounds like a nice makeup. Which model did you order?

    I'm interested in getting some rainy day shoes with rubber soles. The crosstown series appears to be going on sale tomorrow. Does anybody know if there are any additional models going in sale, other than the three previously listed (Provo, Ann Arbor, Granville)?
    Thanks!

    Yessir. Saphir Renovateur, which I let sit for ~20 min or so before brushing like crazy. Then the AE Premium Polish in Dark Brown, and more brushing. I finished them off by putting a dark brown wax polish on the toe caps, and brushing even more.

    Not a fan of my experiment with Saphir cognac polish on my walnut Strands. After two coats of cognac, the shoe is taking on a reddish tinge and the darkening of the shoes has made the creases much more evident. Will go back to using AE's walnut polish. Here's a picture, even though it does not really show what I am talking about.

    I just placed an order. Confirmed that the walnut Dalton's are $199 and ordered them, along with a pair of walnut Strands (both 10D). However, I forgot to confirm the price on the Strands while I was on the phone. Just got my receipt via e-mail -- they rang up as $129. Called up (somewhat disbelieving) and confirmed that it's the correct price. Very, very pleased.

    It's been referenced a couple dozen times in this thread over the last few years. You're right, it does come in very handy. It's fun to see for instance that the 1950s Park Avenue was a blucher, or to peruse all the fashionable abominations they came up with in the late '70s.
