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 believe all AE for BBs are 30% off through the 21st. Go get yourself some chili grain MacNeils if you don't own them already!

    Is that what you are talking about? Is the color actually walnut? Will the poron insole affect the fit? (less room?) Is it still warrentied by AE for re-sole and stuff?

    Woah, they're like 210 now for the strands with free shipping. Available in my size now too...

    Eek, you're making me second guess the suede loake dub monks I ordered in favor of these onessss. The tan color of the BB strand is freaking perrrfect!

    I can't tell if they are calling the walnut a light brown or if that's actually a different color than the AE walnut. I'm thinking about getting them as well.

    That is the BB version of the Elgin and is the Tan Saddle Waxy Leather if I remember correctly.

    Quote:Perfect picture. Thanks! After a little reading it appears that the AE "rough" line runs a half size large. Anybody else find that to be true? I'm normally a 10D on the 5 last, but that would put me at 9.5D for these. They have a 10D, but not a 9.5

    I believe so, yes.

    The BB light brown looks like a fuller, more rosy, brown than the AE walnut.

    I think I prefer the AE walnut, but 210 for firsts with the V tap sole is a pretty good price.

    Viberg manufactures boots in Victoria and so does Roots in Toronto.
    I really like my Dayton boots ... but I consider the brand to be high-priced as opposed to high-end.
