    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.

    Disappointment today... ordered and picked up bourbon strands this evening from AE in Chicago on LaSalle... Got them home to inspect - not good. The pinking on the caps (especially the right one) is awful. There are also some issues with the pinking along the quarter(s). I saw the bourbon in person at Macy's, and it was beautiful - even my GF said to add them to my collection. It wasn't a great day at work, so the shoe arrival was timely, but I didn't do my due diligence - distracted.

    How are these 'firsts'?...Going back. [​IMG]

    Just a quick sneak peak. I will take a picture on Friday when there is ample light to capture their color.

    This might be an angle, but they look alright to me.

    Perfectly imperfect can be great if you open your mind to it. You got pair of "custom" shoes.

    The pinking on the right shoe looks a little sloppy. I remember someone got shell strand seconds that had pinking like that and the consensus was to send them back.

    Hmm I ordered a pair of shell "independence" strands a couple of days before you. I think mine are scheduled to be done next week.

    After 10 pairs of AE's, I will finally have a pair of the iconic strands :)

    I don't have pics but ordered some Larchmonts in dark chocolate that I sent back. Compared to a couple other shoes I have in dark brown burnished there is not much difference. A shade darker perhaps but very close. Hope this helps.

    Ive been wanting to explore the pants/jeans tucked in/stacked on top of your boots look, in order to show off nice boots. Are daltons the kind of boots that can pull this look off? Or is it better to use chunkier boots or ones that flare out more at the top? Does anyone have pics of an outfit like this?

    I havent seen that with a Dalton but if the look you are looking is the high cuffed jeans on top of boots, then I say the Alden Indy boot looks great. Apologies if not strictly AE related. Now back to regular programming.

    I recently picked up a pair of Strands in walnut and they're gorgeous. I've been able to wear them with lighter grey trousers and different earth-tones (shades of brown/tan mainly) in addition to the colors you mentioned (navy, olive).

    Hmmmm, I had an October 4 MTO, and nothing yet. I emailed Allison on Monday and no response.

    Thanks! That IS a nice color, I must say. I dig the patina developing towards the toe box.

    I wouldn't wear double monks for an interview at either place. I'm not saying it means you won't get the job, but I wouldn't take the chance.

    My point was more that it is that there are situations where one should wear a conservative black shoe, so it is a good idea to have a pair in your wardrobe. The Neumora is not that shoe.

    I had a September 26th (tifosi was around that time, as well) MTO and haven't heard much from Allison. Coming up on the 8 week mark this week, I believe.
