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.

    Cheers,

    Wanted to share my 2 for 250 experience. My RL singleton loafers had bowing in the collar and were a poor fit. But these Brooks Brothers MacNeil black grain are nearly flawless. Very satisfied. I just didn't know they had so much padding in the forefoot as opposed to stock AEs. I'll pay $125 for these any day.

    Does anyone know if the upcoming sale applies to 2nds as well as firsts?

    I am almost positive the Independence sale will only apply to the firsts. Moreover, there's no reason to buy 2nds with the 15% discount, since you can get 25% off coupon at Jeffersonville OH store any time.

    Has anyone here bought a pair of Portland dress boots?

    They look badass and I really want a pair.

    Scott,

    will you try to exchange the bad pair? If so, let me know about that experience… restocking fee or not?

    Wanted to point out 2 things quickly based on the past couple of pages...
    1. I got a basic wide belt from the outlets during the 2/250 sale for $49.00... Don't know what their regular price is, but worth checking out...
    2. The $299 shell sale is still going on through the outlets...

    Now onto your regularly scheduled programming...

    First shipment came in today from the 2 for $250 sale, although this was the shipment I am most excited about (the other 2 pairs are boring fifth streets in walnut & merlot), I am saddened that these will not see the light of day until Easter... They will, however, have good company in the closet with my brown/linen strawfuts, my red/white/blue Mcalister's, and both my brown/white & walnut/bone broadstreets, what can I say, I'm a sucker for spectators!

    Walnut & white Hamptons:

    Brown & white Gatsby's for BB:

    Those Hamptons are probably the most comfortable shoe I have put on straight out of the box...

    Maybe. For me, I think they'd look too clunky on the 5 last. I like them as they are.

    What do you when a shoe's width feels fine but there's just a little too much room between the vamp and the top of your foot?

    Pics of my 2 for 250 purchase. Small blemish on the brooks Mcallister, can certainly live with it. I have a feeling it will diminish after polishing. The issue I have with the Brady's is worse though. They are wobbly, like the heels aren't flat causing both shoes to teeter. I will have to exchange those.

    Anyone know if I will b hit with a restocking fee for exchanging out the defective Brady's.

    What shoe?
    Are they uncomfortably loose?
    Does your foot slide forward inside the shoe when you walk?
    Tighten the laces tighter?
    Thin insole?
    Tongue insert if that is the loose region and laces are fully tight?
