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.

    This is some hybrid style i made up! It worked for odd numbered eyelets...

    Tried to give you a visual:
    Dotted lines mean go underneath.
    Seven rows of eyelets; row 1 is bottom row...

    Start going through top of row 1;
    Cross and go up through top of row 3;
    Go straight down to row 2 (dotted);
    Cross and go up to row 4, through top;
    Cross and go to row 6, through top; go straight down to row 5 (dotted);
    Cross and go up to row 7, through top of eyelets... Tie sweet bow and enjoy! ...watch how you cross, so that your laces are parallel as they cross on top (does that make sense?)

    I don't mind sharing! It worked nicely on my Larchmonts. I'm trying to remember what it started as before I tweaked it; I'll post it if I find it...

    ...Henceforth referred to as 'yoshi' lacing. [​IMG]

    If you are talking about the Newbury St store, i can assure you the strands on the shelf are the brown you see on the website now. I know, hard to believe right? Those poor shoes have been sitting out for about two years now and they look more faded and helpless each time I walk in there. Those were brown. When I got mine, I noticed they were a bit darker than those and darker that the website's pic as well. Still a gorgeous color, but ya... those shows have had it.

    Next time I am in there I am going to bring my own polish and have at it. They won't mind.

    Wouldn't faded-to-Walnut be a good thing? Anyone can buy not-faded-and-still-Brown. ;)

    similar to a couple of styles, actually, but that's pretty close! [​IMG]

    PSA: JAB trees now at $8.50 a pair (they were still 50% off yesterday). I'm starting to run out of shoes to put them in, so I got several pairs for my brothers instead. [​IMG]

    "Due to low inventory, we are not able to ship this item to International locations at the time."

    Malarkey.

    For reference, shoe trees are ALWAYS low inventory at JAB so they can never be shipped internationally.

    I actually bought 6 pairs from Jos A Bank for $90 shipped with duty paid to Toronto in late 2011. Since then I've noticed that they don't ship here anymore, so I've had to wait until someone I knew was coming here from the US.

    Do the JAB stores carry these at the $8.50/ea price? Just curious if anyone knows that. <<I work across the street from one>>

    They price match their website, so yes.

    Thanks for this. Just bought 4 more Smalls and 4 more Mediums. I wear 8.5/9, so I pick which I use depending upon the shoe. Interestingly, I usually keep the Smalls in my bigger shoes and the Mediums in the shoes that fit tighter (so they might stretch a tad).
