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.

    You can get the wide basic dress belt MTO in bourbon. I had it made up for me several months ago.

    As above ... it is critical that the guide be printed properly.

    Secondly, be aware of its limitations ... i.e., the guide is only a starting point because it cannot measure your arch length which is a feature of the Brannock device.
    If you have relatively long toes, the guide could overestimate the length of the shoe and put the widest part of the shoe towards your toes.
    If you have relatively short toes, the guide could underestimate the length of the shoe and put the widest part towards your heel.

    I wanted the Burgundy's at $299, but didn't have any in my size. I'm supposedly on a waiting list that will honor that price if one ever pops up.

    Quote:I might get on one for the brown to see if anything shoes up. I think Dundee's don't pop up as 2nds to often. I was on a wait list for the Bourbon Dalton during the boot sale. Took about a month I think. But decided to go with Chili instead for the mean time.

    Is this considered square-toed?

    Ok, these swatches are a little tricky, because they are all very very close in color. From top to bottom we have dark chocolate calf (darkest), dark brown Indy, and dark brown burnished calf (lightest by a fraction of a hair.)

    These samples really are minutely different from each other. The main difference between the Indy dark brown and the standard calf dark brown is in the texture. The Indy leather is softer, thinner, and with a finer grain. PM me your addy if you'd like me to mail them to you!

    FWIW allison is very accommodating when it comes to sending samples.

    Thanks!

    It looks like the two browns are very similar. Do you happen to have other colors such as walnut as well?

    Here's the best I can do in my lighting situation.

    Brown shell, walnut burnished, chili burnished, with the dark brown samples underneath.

    Limited natural light only:

    How about "throw back Friday"? These are my AE Ellsworths from the old AE Corporate Casuals collection. I purchased these around 1995. They have been recrafted once.

    Pebble grain is super stiff and it's rubbing against my ankles creating scratches. What's the best way to alleviate the problem?

    Am I imagining things or is AE eliminating the Independence collection? All but two models are now in the clearance section. Or perhaps they're planning to introduce a bunch of new ones?
