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.

    Looks like a legit thing to make them seconds. I still think you probably got a good deal. I'd wear them with pride.

    I have been holding off on some burgundy shell Graysons in my size that've been on the seconds list since at least September 2011. I just may have to make that happen. :D Thanks for the heads up!

    Thanks - that makes me feel better. And really, I am and I will. It was just an eye-opener to me this morning to realize how much keener my eye has become (for better or worse).

    calm down buddy... do we need to have an intervention?

    It's sort of ironic you are posting this right after posting your cautionary tale regarding shell seconds.

    either your ordering 18 pairs of shoe trees was a sign of good things to come...

    ...or a seriously bad omen...

    get out while you still have your dignity! This forum will consume your life, your money, and your relationship with your S.O. (unless your significant other is a shoe junky like my wife).

    Took me a third hard look. First I thought they looked fine. Second I thought it was the rolls on the right side of the left lacing. I knew that couldn't be it. On my third look I realized it eas the off centered lace/tongue on the shoe. I honestly had to look carefully and I think only you and someone examining would notice. I'm pretty sure my shell MTO strands on the left shoe are slightly crooked as well but I'm okay with it (although I agree that if I had noticed earlier I probably would have sent them back).

    On second thought...is that the defect or is it the angle of your leg? Well I guess that just speaks to how tolerable the defect might be.

    Also, nice socks. I have the same pair. [​IMG]

    unless I'm mistaken, that is not the defect. It was identified above your post as the roll on his left shoe to the right of the lacing.

    Haha yeah, I ended up second guessing myself but I must have posted my second thought just before you posted this reply. I wonder if that "roll" can be identified before wear. If it developed after he wore them a few times, I don't know if AE would have known upon initial QC inspection.

    Thanks. Here's the tale:

    Turns out I didn't have to be all that patient. :)
