    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 think those look cool, but the minimalism makes them stand out though. Not sure about the suit thang. I think those would look better in the summer paired with white or salmon pants.

    no kidding man... She knows all the right strings to pluck when it comes to this forum's members. I think a few years down the road this allen edmonds thread and it's followers could potentially turn into some sort of weird Allison worshiping cult. She's got us all in her pocket...

    In a few years every post will end with a few of these [​IMG] followed by "ALL HAIL ALLISON THE MASTER ENABLER."

    Also, am I the only one who wonders what she looks like? don't want to get creepy or anything... but I'm not afraid to say the thought has crossed my mind...

    Are there any awesome deals on a black boot right now? I have a pair of walnut daltons. Looking for something in black as well.
    I thought I had a pair of beater black boots, but they were busted.

    Cronmok or chukkamok?

    $239 is a good deal but I've seen the fifth aves at this price point a couple times this year already. With the holiday coming up and Nordy sale at the end of the year, I'm sure it'll drop to this number again so if you're not in a hurry, you can probably wait. Patience will pay off, I just got my Fifth walnut last week for $200 [​IMG]

    I drove 1.5 hours to the nearest Allen Edmonds store this afternoon to try to take advantage of their sale. I had previously tried mailorder from their website but receiving, trying, and sending back shoes to find my size took too long.

    With the help of the sales associate, I've found I wear a 7.5D in the 65 last but they didn't have much in my size. I tried the Wilbert (too much slip on the heel), the Derby (cramped my left small toe), and a pair of loafers (forgot the name of the style but didn't like how they felt).

    I did come away with my first pair of AE's: the Strand in Walnut:

    [​IMG]


    I really liked the rich Walnut color and felt it really brought out the patterns on the Strand. I also sprung for a matching belt, polish, and a couple of shoe trees (19.99 on sale and the SA generously sold me the 2nd tree for 0.01).

    I wanted a pair of the Fifth Avenue in Burnished Brown but they were out of stock. Guess I'll order those from AE.com now that I know which size to order.

    For this current sale, can you take 15% of $299 for any shell seconds that are left?

    Those look great. Walnut Strands are my favorites in the rotation

    NO NEED TO WAIT.
    I don't mean to plug my own thread, but this is more of a service to SF members and for those who are looking for Firsts at below 2nds pricing :slayer:

    There is additional discounts with the Rediscover America sale this week in my thread. Please see signature and PM me for details

    Hmm I'm starting to wonder the same thing. I purchased my cappuccino mcallisters the day before the sale started because the salesman said to jump on it before its gone. I wonder if I could have gotten 15% off if I had bought it the next morning.

    I often wear tans or browns with a navy or grey suit, and sometimes black if I'm being more classic/formal. Black patent on this occasion was because I was being a dick It went well for me.

    The only way to "dull" patent leather is to make it dirty or scratch it. I will wear these shoes rarely because they're a bit of a statement, just like bright yellow socks. Never to be taken too seriously. If you want to be more "business", leave them for another day and wear ordinary calf black captoes. Like I am today. Albeit with lavender laces and raspberry socks. The general I had my first meeting with today thought it was cool. That and the three piece suit. Don't be afraid of having your own style. ;)

    Is the RDA sale the best time to get first quality pairs?

    I'm in no rush to get another pair, but if is, then I might get one more and just put it in reserve.
