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.

    I ordered them the first day they were available as a web gem. They get about 1, maybe 2 days a week. having 28 pairs of AE I should wear them less often, but I do love these.

    I have the Brown Shell Strand and Brown Shell Jefferson. Love them both. Of course the Strand is a captor and the Jefferson is a classic wingtip. They both are showing patina the same way and coloring is about the same on both. Caps on the Shell Strand appears l bit redder, but they are a year older and showing more patina at this point in their life. I like the sole being thicker on the Jefferson over the single sole of the Strand. I to have the walnut calf Jefferson. Those were actually my first AE Purchase a couple years back. I would say the fit is about the same on the Strand and Jefferson. Of course both are on the 5 last. The sale on the Jefferson calf would be hard to pass up if you do not already have a pair. You will love this shoe. My collection has grown exponentially since, and my bank account had reduced at an equal rate...

    The Singleton is on the same last as the Randolph, which is the 9 last. The Saunders and Sanderson are on the 2 last.

    Did somebody do a review on the MaCallister vs Jefferson?

    This seems like a great opportunity to put some MTO options on the Jeffersons as well.

    Contact the store/SA that sold you the shoes to see if they can help. I don't think it's a structural issue, it's something that a local cobbler can also fix.

    I had a stitch like that on a pair of shoes I had resoled by B Nelson and I called them just to make sure I would not harm the shoe by cutting it and he said no- though he seemed to suggest burning it off. I am not sure if they stitch diff than AE...though the others coming lose may signify a bigger problem...also it appears to be some some slight separating on the upper sole/welt line. How many times have you worn these? Are you really tough on the toes of your shoes generally?

    Thanks for the info on the 9 last. Looks to be a good last for me.I don't think I have any 9 last shoes. Loafers are tricky and these fit fantastic. I'm wearing these today on a dress down friday (maiden voyage!):

    I think so. I'd have a hard time paying full price, but I purchased one for $69 and I quite like it.

    Interesting. I'll call up my SA and ask his opinion. Just would hate for them to start unraveling. And it's a bit noticeable. Other than that I love them. I've had them out about 3 days now. Yesterday was probably the most walking as I was back and forth downtown. I wouldn't say I'm unusually hard on my toes. I can snap a pic of the bottom though.

    I have welt stitching on the left shoe of my 2nds Strawfuts that seems to have missed the welt and runs right on the edge of the shoe: [​IMG]

    I was worried about the stitching coming loose until I called in and the SA said that it shouldn't be an issue and if it becomes one, they'll recraft it at no charge because "That's the beauty of what we do here." Put my mind at ease solidified another life customer by going above and beyond. Hope this helps!

    Do you know what other 2nds are on sale ?

    Also, how do people usually size the 108 last compared to the 5 last.

    Does anybody have the outlet site to see live inventory or do we still have to email the shoe bank for size listing?

    Just try calling the store and asking if you have a specific shoe in mind. The numbers are at the bottom of my link.
