    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.

    Black CXL Leeds on the Dainite sole have arrived this morning--just in time for the wintry weather here in NJ (can't rotate the damn picture). [​IMG][​IMG]

    Thanks, Tifosi. They actually turned out pretty great; in a sense, better than I had expected. There's a bit of a navy shade, but it probably depends on the angle that you look at them.

    Those are AWESOME. Like tifosi said, I thought they were Navy at first glance. I'd love a pair in NAVY come to think of it.... I have to stop looking on here - ssssseriously.

    This was the email, but yes, someone would probably have to call for the full list.

    AE does have some Navy calf, but not CXL. I got a sample of the dress calf, casual calf and suede in navy. All of them looked almost black, so I didn't bite for an MTO...yet.

    Those look pretty cool, and they've actually sort of reaffirmed my desire to get navy Neumoks, which I'm convinced can be worn to work in the proper setting.

    Question: do you have a midsole between the dainite and the welt on that shoe?

    Need a bit of help from the AE experts.

    I'm ordering Kenilworths and Long Branches through my local men's store (30% off and shopping local!). My problem is that I can't seem to find a consistent size in AE. I measure a 10C. I own Amoks (9.5E - still snug in the footbox), Hillcrests (10D - a tad long and too much volume in entire shoe), and Regent Streets (10D - fit pretty well, could have sized down a half a size).

    What size would be my best bet for each of these shoes?

    There is no such thing. Your size will vary with each different last, possibly.

    I know difference in last will, possibly, alter size. That's why I'm asking for advice. The three pair that I own are all on the 234 last. The Kenilworth and Longbranch are both on different lasts.

    I have the fifth avenue which is on the same last as the kenilworth. I had to size down .5 in the kenilworth. I don't know why since it's on the same last but hey.

    Interesting stuff and nice family pic! Are those all Dundee's? Is that the dark brown up front? How did you size - true to Brannock? Sorry for all the questions sir.
